Associated Press

PROVO, Utah -- Freshman linebacker Kyle Van Noy batted down a fourth-down pass with 16 seconds left as BYU's defense, dominant most of the game, made one last stand to preserve a 25-20 win over Wyoming.

The mostly stagnant Cowboy offense marched 61 yards on the game's final drive, but the Cougar defense held firm at its own 25 by breaking up four straight passes by Austyn Carta-Samuels. Van Noy's deflection at the line of scrimmage followed pass breakups by teammates Shane Hunter, Andrew Rich and Brandon Bradley.

Bryan Kariya ran for 88 yards and a touchdown, JJ Di Luigi rushed for 83 yards and a touchdown and Joshua Quezada added 63 more on the ground for BYU (3-5, 2-2 Mountain West).

The Cougar defense held Wyoming (2-6, 0-4) to three positive-yardage plays in the first half. The Cowboys lost yardage on nine plays and went into the locker room with negative-18 yards of total offense.
