PROVO, Utah – BYU running back Miles Davis broke loss for a big gain and helped set up a touchdown connection between Jaren Hall and Kody Epps against the Wyoming Cowboys.

The No. 19 Cougars hosted the Cowboys at LaVell Edwards Stadium on Saturday, September 24.

During BYU’s first possession of the second half, Davis gave life to the Cougars’ run game. The Las Vegas, native had runs of 25 and 17 yards to help the Cougars march down the field.

BYU took advantage of Davis’ energy and moved the ball into the red zone before Hall threw a three-yard touchdown pass to Epps.

The touchdown capped a nine-play, 83-yard drive that took 5:07.

After the drive, Hall was 16/20 passing for 187 yards and two touchdowns. Epps had three receptions for 10 yards and a touchdown. Epps entered teh game with 12 catches for 99 yards and touchdown this season. The Los Angeles native caught his first career touchdown pass during BYU’s last game against Oregon.

Davis was BYU’s leading rusher with four carries for 41 yards.

BYU’s game against Wyoming is broadcast on ESPN2 and KSL NewsRadio.

Wyoming vs. BYU

It’s the first meeting between these two schools since the 2016 Poinsettia Bowl in San Diego. These two programs were once Mountain West and WAC rivals. They used to play on an annual basis, with the last regular season meeting taking place in 2010.

Outside of Utah and Utah State, BYU has never played a team more than Wyoming. BYU’s first win as a program came against Wyoming back in 1922. There’s a history between the two schools. Anyone around for those LaVell Edwards/Paul Roach games or the 1996 WAC Championship would tell you BYU/Wyoming used to be something back in the day.

Wyoming hasn’t won in Provo since 1987. BYU has won the last eight meetings in the series, with Wyoming’s last victory coming in 2003 against a BYU team that finished 4-8.
