Associated Press

PROVO, Utah -- Freshman Joshua Quezada scored the first three rushing touchdowns of his career and BYU's defense throttled UNLV as the Cougars routed the Rebels 55-7 Saturday.

Quezada carried 13 times for 65 yards and scored in each of the first three quarters on runs of 13, 13 and 4 yards as BYU (4-5, 3-2 Mountain West) kept its bowl hopes alive.

UNLV (1-8, 1-4) managed only 144 yards of offense, 70 of them on the Rebels' final drive of the game.

Cougar freshman quarterback Jake Heaps completed 19 of 31 passes for a career-high 294 yards. He threw two touchdown passes, a 37-yard bomb to Cody Hoffman and his longest completion of the season, a 42-yarder to Luke Ashworth.

JJ Di Luigi ran 19 times for 80 yards and a touchdown for BYU. Bryan Kariya ran 11 times for 46 yards and the other Cougar touchdown.
