ANNAPOLIS, Md. – BYU running back Tyler Allgeier got the Cougars on the scoreboard first and in the end zone for the first time in the 2020 season.

Allgeier ran in a 34-yard touchdown run to put BYU up 7-0 over Navy with 10:07 remaining in the first quarter.

It’s the first career rushing touchdown for the sophomore from Fontana, California. He had one receiving touchdown last season. Allgeier was already halfway to 100 yards on just three carries, rushing for 48 yards.

It was a great opening drive for the Cougars after they forced Navy to punt on a three-and-out to begin the game in Annapolis, Maryland. BYU’s first offensive drive started with an incomplete pass to Gunner Romney. Running back Lopini Katoa had the first carry for the offense and ran for 8 yards. Dax Milne ran for three yards and a first down for BYU on a third and 2.

Wilson attempted to hit Romney again but it was incomplete. Allegeier’s first carry was a 5 yard run followed by another run of 8 yards for a first down. A personal foul penalty on Navy put the Cougars into Midshipmen territory. After the penalty, Allgeier ran in the 34-yard touchdown.
