PROVO, Utah – BYU linebacker Drew Jensen picked off San Diego State quarterback Jordon Brookshire to kill an Aztec possession and set up a drive that ended with a touchdown pass from Zach Wilson to Isaac Rex.

The No. 18 Cougars hosted the Aztecs at LaVell Edwards Stadium on Saturday, December 12.

With 11:08 left in the second quarter, Brookshire decided to throw the ball on a run-pass option play. Jensen took advantage of Brookshire’s decision and intercepted the ball.

Jensen returned the ball 11 yards.

It was the sophomore linebacker’s first career interception.

The Aztecs nearly stopped the Cougars on the following possession.

BYU decided to go for it on 4th and 1 from the SDSU 45-yard line.

Lopini Katoa ran up the middle and broke loose for 43 yards and set the Cougars up in the red zone at the Aztec two-yard line.

On the next play, Wilson connected with a wide-open Isaac Rex for BYU’s second score of the contest.

The touchdown tied BYU and San Diego State at 14-14 with 8:34 remaining in the first half.

It was Wilson’s 29th passing touchdown of the season and Rex’s ninth touchdown catch of 2020.

The San Diego State vs. BYU game is broadcast on ESPN2 and KSL NewsRadio 102.7 FM and 1160 AM.
