Masen Wake Scores First TD In 2020 At LaVell Edwards Stadium
PROVO, Utah – BYU fullback Masen Wake scored the first touchdown of the 2020 season at LaVell Edwards Stadium.
The one-yard touchdown run for Wake put the Cougars up 7-0 over Troy with 1:26 remaining in the first quarter.
It’s the first career touchdown for the Lone Peak High School product. The score came on fourth and goal at the one-yard line.
The drive started on BYU’s own 36-yard line but they moved quickly with a 23 yard run by Lopini Katoa. After a one-yard run by Dax Milne, Zach Wilson connected with Milne through the air for 11-yards.
Running back Tyler Allgeier busted out a 24-yard run on a pass from Wilson to set the Cougars up in the red zone. After short gains of two yards apiece from Wilson and Allgeier, Katoa couldn’t get into the end zone on third and goal. Kalani Sitake decided to go for it and it paid off when Wilson did a simple fullback hand off and Wake ran into the end zone.
Wake dreamed of playing for Boise State as a kid but ended up at BYU as a walk-on. He also plays tight end as well as fullback.
