BOISE, Idaho – BYU’s defensive blocked a Boise State punt to set up a short field for Zach Wilson and the Cougars’ offense during the fourth quarter.

The No. 21 Broncos hosted the No. 9 Cougars at Albertson’s Stadium in Boise, Idaho on Friday, November 6.

Boise State attempted to punt the ball on 4th and 10 from their own 37-yard line when BYU defensive lineman Khyiris Tonga had other plans for the play.

Tonga blocked the kick and the Cougars took over at the Boise State 30-yard line.

Six plays later, Zach Wilson dished the ball off to BYU wide receiver Neil Pau’u who ran the ball across the goal line for a one-yard touchdown.

After the score, Wilson had thrown 20/26 for 317 yards and two touchdowns. He had a touchdown rush as well.

For Pau’u, the score was his first of the game. The play was considered a backward pass and resulted in a run on the box score.

Pau’u had five catches for 75 yards to go along with his one carry and touchdown run.

BYU’s game against Boise State is broadcast on FS1 and KSL NewsRadio 102.7 FM and 1160 AM.
