SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – BYU running back Tyler Allgeier scored the Cougars’ first touchdown of the 2021 season after a trick play moved the team deep into Arizona territory.

The Cougars played the Arizona Wildcats at Allegiant Stadium, the home of the Las Vegas Raiders, on Saturday, September 4.

With 9:17 remaining in the first half, Allgeier ran the ball 15 yards into the end zone for BYU’s first touchdown of the season.

Allgeier’s run gave the Cougars a 6-0 lead. BYU failed to convert on their extra point attempt after a mishandled snap.

The running back’s run was set up by a trick play.

One play before Allgeier’s red zone run, BYU quarterback Jaren Hall pitched the ball off to wide receiver Neil Pau’u.

The receiver then threw to ball ahead to a QB turned wideout in Hall.

The Hall-Pau’u connection was a nine-yard toss/reception that moved BYU into the red zone.

After the touchdown run, Hall was 6/12 passing for 67 yards.

Allgeier had eight carries for 52 yards and a touchdown.

Pau’u recorded three catches for 35 yards.

BYU’s game against Arizona is broadcast on ESPN and KSL NewsRadio 102.7 FM and 1160 AM.
