PLAY OF THE GAME
Late in the fourth quarter, running back Harvey Unga looks to be stopped at the 2-yard line, but the freshman pushes the pile and gets into the end zone to put the game away for the Cougars, who improve to 3-0 in Mountain West play.
The Cougars make a conscious decision to almost exclusively keep the ball on the ground after halftime. With just 13 rushes in the first half, BYU backs have 31 rushes in the second half and the Cougars throw it just 10 times, wearing down UNLV.
"We're not a finished football team yet, but I'm happy with the win." Bronco Mendenhall, BYU head coach
