PROVO, Utah — BYU rallied to score 28 points in the second half as they defeated Nevada 28-23 in the final game of the regular season.

The Wolf Pack shutout the Cougars in the first half, and they took a 7-0 nothing lead into halftime. But BYU came out strong in the second half.

Jamaal Williams started the scoring with 66-yard touchdown run early in the 3rd quarter.  He went on to rush for a career-high 219 yards, with 188 coming in the second half.

Taysom Hill was a part of the final three touchdowns for the Cougars. The BYU sophomore quarterback threw touchdown passes to Kaneakua Friel and JD Falslev, and then Hill capped the scoring with a 35-yard touchdown run.

The Cougars end the regular season with an 8-4 record.
