By halftime, BYU was staked to a 35-0 lead.
"We have passion. We're playing for something that's good for our program and good for the people to see," said Van Noy. "I think we're only going up from here. We can only get better. Our defense is pulling through and our offense is clicking now. We're a team to be reckoned with now."
BYU cornerback Brian Logan was surprised by how well his team played.
"(The Rams) have better athletes than UNLV," he said. "We thought it was going to be a battle. But our offense just gave it to them."
BYU converted its first nine third-down attempts and ended up going 12-for-13 on third downs.
"That's how you've got to play great football — convert on third downs," Heaps said. "That's a huge part of the game."
Ashworth credited the play-calling, and the offensive line, for BYU's success.
"The (offensive line) gave Jake all the time in the world to make great throws, and I was fortunate to be on the other end of it," Ashworth said. "It was great play-calling. We had confidence that those plays would work out because they worked in practice all week."
