BYU 35, Wyoming 10

LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) -- Max Hall passed for 331 yards and three touchdowns, and Harvey Unga rushed for 110 yards and two scores in leading BYU to its seventh straight win with a 35-10 victory over Wyoming Saturday.

BYU (8-2, 6-0) clinched at least a share of its fourth Mountain West Conference title.

Wyoming (5-6, 2-5) has lost five of its last six games after starting the season 4-1.

Hall completed 26 of 37 passes, with no interceptions, as the Cougars offense gained 497 yards on a Wyoming defense that entered the game ranked first in the conference and 14th nationally in giving up 309.1 yards a game. The BYU offense had been averaging 448 yards and 30.4 points a game.

Hall had touchdown passes of 3 yards to Matt Allen, 23 yards to Dennis Pitta and 10 yards to Michael Reed. Hall sat out most of the fourth quarter when BYU went up 35-10 on Unga's second TD.

The previous weekend, Wyoming coach Joe Glenn made an obscene gesture at Utah when the Utes attempted an on-sides kick while leading 43-0 about midway through the third quarter. Glenn later apologized.

BYU gained 303 yards against Wyoming in the first half, including 245 yards on Hall's arm, in taking a 21-3 halftime lead. The Cougars first punt of the game didn't come until under 5 minutes left in the third quarter.

The BYU defense held the Cowboys to just 277 total yards, including just 9 net yards rushing.

Karsten Sween completed 17 of 29 passes for 217 yards, but threw one interception.

Wyoming's only touchdown came on a 2-yard run by Wynel Seldon in the third quarter. It was Wyoming's first touchdown in eight quarters.
