End 4th Quarter Fourth Quarter
(18) BYU 59, UNLV 21

So the Cougars roll into Vegas, start a little slow, but then use "balance" to give the BYU faithful at Sam Boyd a lot to cheer about. Harvey hits the end zone 3 times, Max passes for over 300 and BYU moves to 5-1 with the 59-21 win. Should move up a few spots in the polls.

13:17 Fourth Quarter
(18) BYU 52, UNLV 21

Well, UNLV, BYU and everyone else watching or listening to this game wishes it was over. The running game has been impressive but I'm not sure how proud of it you could be since this UNLV defense has given up more than 1300 yards in two weeks.

13:40 Fourth Quarter
(18) BYU 45, UNLV 21

In go the Rebels to start the 4th Q....Defense has played relatively well, but with almost a full Quarter to go the Cougars need to keep this score it or not, the voters look at the score and BYU has a chance to move up a few spots, no reason to give the voters any reason to not move the Cougars up......

Third Quarter
(18) BYU 31, UNLV 14

The Answer....big play Dennis Pitta, Hall has been sharp and makes another solid pass and then D.P. does the the defense can make a statement and really put the Rebels away in this one.......31-14 BYU.

10:23 Third Quarter
(18) BYU 24, UNLV 14

Two Big UNLV plays have this game somewhat close and that's it ....two plays! Don't get comfortable BYU....the running game has been working well, but it's time to demoralize the Rebels and not give them any hope here! 24-14 BYU

14:30 Third Quarter
(18) BYU 24, UNLV 7

The Cougars just need to keep that balanced attack going, stay off of the turnover train and just finish this one out. The defense is rather impressive this evening lets see if its going to be a tale of two halves, or another 3 touchdowns for Harvey Unga.

2:02 Second Quarter
(18) BYU 24, UNLV 7

BYU started at their own 2 yard line on that drive and they stalled at mid field but with the punt they put UNLV back at their own 18 to start their drive late here in the 2nd Quarter. 24-7 BYU!

11:00 Second Quarter
(18) BYU 24, UNLV 7

Max who? Keep handing that ball off to the guys in the back field. This seems like the same tune as last week for the hapless Rebels. I'd like to see the Cougars slow down the pace a little to keep the D off the field as much as they can.

Second Quarter
(18) BYU 24, UNLV 7

Harvey Unga with the trifecta of TD's and over 100 yards....and it's only the 2nd Quarter!!!! Run Harvey Run.........24-7 Cougars.

End 1st Quarter First Quarter
(18) BYU 10, UNLV 0

A solid first quarter, a good defensive effort with a turnover to show for it. The offense runs and passes well with a good balance between the two. End of the 1st 10-0 BYU.

3:36 First Quarter
(18) BYU 10, UNLV 0

If you're the Cougars, keep that ball moving on the ground. The Rebs haven't been able to stop it yet so keep that ball in Harvey Unga's hands! AK

10:30 First Quarter
(18) BYU 0, UNLV 0

UNLV takes the ball to start the game and moves into BYU territory inside the 35, but the drive ends on a 3 & 12.....The BYU Defense holds........The Rebels with a nice early effort on their first drive, but they stall and BYU takes over at their own 19............RF
