Playing its final tune-up game before taking on Boise State in a Top 25 showdown next week, No. 11 BYU made quick work of Western Kentucky with a 41-10 victory Saturday night at LaVell Edwards Stadium.

BYU quarterback Zach Wilson had a great game going in the first half, but a shaky second half performance left his numbers lower than what the quarterback is used to putting up. Wilson finished the game with a rating of 139.7, his lowest of the season. He came in with a quarterback rating of 211.2 through the first six games this year.

Still, the dual-threat quarterback threw for 224 yards and three touchdowns in just three quarters of play. The 6-foot-3, 210-pound junior also added 35 yards rushing to go with a touchdown on the ground. Wilson also set a record for most passing attempts without an interception (184), however, as soon as he broke the record, he threw an interception a couple plays later. It was his first interception since throwing a pick in the first game of the season against Navy.

Once again, the Cougar offense put up a lot of points as the Cougars racked up 40 points for the sixth time this season. It’s the first time in program history that BYU has done so through the first seven games of a season.

With the win, the Cougars are 7-0 for just the fourth time in program history. The last three times BYU started 7-0 was back in 1979, 1984 and 2001. The teams finished 11-1, 13-0 and 12-2 on the season.

Here’s a look at how the media, fans and players reacted after the win:
