Bouknight to Barge Touchdown Pass Selected as the Pontiac Game Changing Performance of the Week on ESPN

Oct. 1, 2004

LARAMIE, Wyo. -

The University of Wyoming will receive a $5,000 contribution to their general scholarship fund from Pontiac after fan voting picked a UW play from last week's Ole Miss game out of four national selections.

Each week on ESPN.com, there is a contest that fans can participate in to choose the "Pontiac Game Changing Performance of the Week". Among the four plays nominated this week was the 69-yard reverse pass for a touchdown from Wyoming's Jovon Bouknight to Josh Barge against Ole Miss.

The Bouknight to Barge pass play won this week's voting, with over 50 percent of the votes and was replayed at haltime of ESPN's Thursday Night game between Navy and Air Force.

By winning the fan balloting, the University of Wyoming will receive a $5,000 scholarship from Pontiac to go toward the UW general scholarship fund.

In the fourth quarter, of the Ole Miss game, Wyoming quarterback Corey Bramlet rolled out left. Bramlet then gave the ball to Bouknight, who had come in motion to the right. While still on the run, Bouknight hit Barge in stride and the Blue Springs, Mo., native took it the distance for a 69-yard touchdown, giving the Pokes a 12-point margin at 37-25.
