Player of the game

Justin Luettgerodt: Had three fumble recoveries and another interception to go with four solo tackles, three assists and a tackle for an 11-yard loss.

Play of the game

The Cougars' final touchdown of the game is picturesque, with John Beck floating a pass to the right back corner of the end zone. Tight end Jonny Harline leaps over the defensive back to tip the ball once to himself, then snags the pass before stumbling beyond the endline for a 6-yard TD reception — his second score of the game.

Key call

Justin Luettgerodt's first fumble recovery — late in the first quarter — off a Devin Moore carry earns a video-replay review, with Wyoming players and fans and even some press-box pundits wondering if it wasn't a fumble. The fumble ruling isn't overturned, and BYU scores five plays later.

Quotable

"It's nice to be bowl-eligible, but it makes me more happy that we are going to have a winning season. That hasn't happened in three years." — Bronco Mendenhall, BYU head coach
