RENO, Nev. — BYU overcame a terrible and uninspired start to win a hard-fought road game against Nevada on Saturday, 28-23. The Cougars looked like a completely different team in the second half — particularly on offense — to wrap up the regular season with an 8-4 record.

Grades are in for each position group and the coaching staff for how they performed in the victory.
