Max Hall threw two touchdown passes in the first quarter to help Brigham Young grab a 14-7 lead at the end of the first quarter.
Frank Summers had the UNLV score on a 6-yard run up the middle.
The first quarter contained only three possessions and all went for touchdowns.
WHERE DID HE SEE THAT?
Most teams only throw the fade pass to the end zone when they are inside the 10-yard line.
Several times this season, UNLV has thrown it from much farther out to take advantage of freshman Phillip Payne’s athleticism.
It has worked for the Rebels.
BYU probably liked the play when they saw it on tape.
The Cougars threw it to O’Neill Chambers for a 20-yard touchdown in the first quarter.
UNLV football fans have seen this game before.
The offense actually came in and stood toe-to-toe with the No. 18 team in the nation in the early going, driving right down the field for a touchdown.
The defense thus far has shown no ability to even be able to slow down the potent BYU offense.
It’s getting old very quickly.
STAYING ON THE FIELD
On UNLV’s touchdown drive, Omar Clayton was 3-for-3 on third down pass attempts.
All three completions went for first downs.
Perhaps even more impressively, Casey Flair, Ryan Wolfe and Phillip Payne each converted a third down.
SO MUCH FOR BEING FLAT
Brigham Young returned the opening kickoff 76 yards and started its opening possession at UNLV’s 25-yard line.
Apparently, Austin Collie didn’t get the memo that the Cougars might be flat after seeing their BCS dreams go away.
