Final Score: 45-10

Editors note: This game was Anae's first win as BYU's offensive coordinator, but it definitely wasn't his last. BYU won three of their last five games that season to give Bronco Mendenhall a 6-6 record in his first season as BYU's head coach.

For BYU wide receiver Todd Watkins, first came the catches, then the contributions and finally the comments.

A week after a frustrating 20-3 loss to Boston College in which the standout senior managed only two receptions for a paltry 19 yards, Watkins joined the BYU offense to break out in the Cougars' 45-10 victory Saturday over Eastern Illinois.

Against the I-AA Panthers, Watkins hauled in seven throws — nearly a third of quarterback John Beck's 26 completions — and snagged a pair of passes in makeshift plays for Cougar touchdowns.
