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.
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.
