Associated Press

PROVO, Utah (AP) -- Harvey Unga rushed for 145 yards and scored two touchdowns to lead Brigham Young over Eastern Washington 42-7 Saturday.

The Cougars (5-2) gained 377 yards of total offense despite heavy snow that blanketed the field by the end of the game.

Corby Hodgkiss returned an interception 39 yards in the first quarter for BYU and Max Hall completed 15 of 30 passes for 156 yards, including four passes to Unga for 57 yards and a touchdown.

Unga added a 13-yard touchdown run late in the second quarter, dragging several of the Eagles (4-3) with him over the final five yards to put BYU up 21-7. The Cougars outscored the Eagles 21-0 in the second half and still haven't lost at home since 2005.

Eastern Washington's only score was a 28-yard pass from Matt Nichols to Aaron Boyce that cut BYU's lead to 14-7.

Nichols was 20-for-32 for 216 yards with two interceptions. Boyce had nine catches for 135 yards for the Eagles, who finished with just 266 yards of offense.
