PROVO, Utah – BYU linebacker Payton Wilgar had a spectacular diving interception of USC quarterback Kedon Slovis in the first quarter of Saturday’s game.

A few plays later, the Cougars were on the goal line. The Cougars ran a scrum formation and gave the ball to defensive back Dayan Ghanwook who dove into the endzone for the BYU touchdown.

The pick reversed USC’s momentum and gave the Cougars some after allowing the Trojans to take a 7-0 lead early in the first quarter.

Wilgar perfectly broke on the ball from Slovis and gave the BYU their second possession of the game.

Wilgar’s pick was the first of his career.

Ghanwoloku’s touchdown tied the game up 7-7 with 6:10 left in the first quarter.

The DB also scored a rushing touchdown in BYU’s bowl game at the end of last season.

The USC vs BYU game is available on KSL NewsRadio 1160 AM and 102.7 FM. The game is also available on ABC.
