SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – BYU football opened up the playbook a little bit when Zach Wilson threw a touchdown to a wide open Isaac Rex off of a flea flicker.

Wilson handed off to running back Lopini Katoa, who pitched to wide receiver Neil Pau’u, who pitched back to Wilson. The BYU QB found tight end Isaac Rex wide open for a 36-yard touchdown. Rex hauled in his 11th touchdown of the season.

It was Wilson’s first passing touchdown of the game and 31st of the season as the Cougars were in the Boca Raton Bowl against UCF on Tuesday, December 22. Wilson had a rushing touchdown on the first drive of the game. That gave the Cougars a 14-0 lead with 11:10 remaining in the opening quarter.

That drive was only 4 plays for 72 yards. It started with Wilson connecting with wide receiver Gunner Romney for a 12-yard gain. Then Wilson found Pau’u for a 19-yard completion. Running back Tyler Allgeier ran for a five-yard gain before the trick play.

Midway through first quarter, Wilson completed 9 of his first 11 passes for 159 yards and one TD. He ran for a 15-yard touchdown.
