PROVO, Utah (AP) Riley Nelson passed for 244 yards and a touchdown in one half of play as Brigham Young built a big lead and cruised to a 45-13 victory Saturday over Weber State.
Nelson was 10 of 10 for 174 yards on three touchdown drives and did not play in the second half as BYU (2-0) led 21-0, and began substituting liberally.
He finished 18 of 29, while counterpart Mike Hoke completed 13 of 26 passes for 91 yards for Weber State (0-2). Hoke was sacked six times and fumbled once.
BYU freshman QB Taysom Hill scored on a 2-yard second-quarter run, and added a 1-yard run late. Cougars senior quarterback James Lark also threw his first career touchdown pass, and added a 6-yard scoring run.
Josh Booker and Kris Parham both had rushing touchdowns for Weber State.
