PROVO, Utah – BYU quarterback Zach Wilson aired out a 50-yard pass and connected with wide receiver Gunner Romney on the Cougars’ first offensive play against North Alabama.

The Cougars hosted the Lions at LaVell Edwards Stadium on Saturday, November 21.

After forcing a North Alabama punt on the opening series of the game, BYU’s offense took the field at their own 20-yard line.

On the Cougar’s first offensive snap, Wilson unleashed a 50-yard toss down the field. Romney went up and grabbed the football over a pair of Lion defenders.

The completion moved the BYU offense to the North Alabama 30-yard line.

Five plays later, the Cougars scored their first points of the contest on a two-yard pass from Wilson to Isaac Rex.

For Wilson, it was his 23rd touchdown pass of the season.

After the drive, the junior quarterback was 3/4 for 67 yards and a touchdown.

The catch was Rex’s seventh TD reception of 2020.

It was the tight end’s second catch of the series and gave him 17 receiving yards.

BYU took a 7-0 lead over North Alabama with 9:42 remaining in the first quarter.

The game between the Lions vs. Cougars game is broadcast on BYUtv and KSL NewsRadio 102.7 FM and 1160 AM.
