SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – For the second time in just the first half, BYU quarterback Zach Wilson connected with tight end Isaac Rex for a touchdown.

Wilson’s first TD pass of the game in the Boca Raton Bowl versus UCF on December 22 came in the first quarter on a flea flicker.

The second score between the two was on a 27-yard strike that gave BYU a 28-7 lead with 7:11 left in the second quarter. It’s the 32nd passing touchdown by Wilson and the 12th receiving TD by Rex.

The drive started at BYU’s own 32-yard line. Running back Tyler Allgeier ran for a 24-yard gain and eclipsed the 1,000 yard rushing mark for the season. Wilson threw an incomplete pass followed by a one-yard run by Allgeier. Then Wilson used his legs to pick up four yards.

Lopini Katoa caught an 18-yard pass from Wilson before gaining four yards on the ground. Wilson then threw the 27-yard touchdown to Rex.

Midway through the second quarter, Wilson completed 13 of their 17 pass attempts for 249 yards and two touchdowns. He also ran the ball three times for 23 yards and 2 TD’s.
