SALT LAKE CITY (AP) Travis Wilson had two long touchdown runs and threw for three more scores, all in the first half, and Utah exploded for a 70-7 win over Weber State on Saturday.
The blowout marked the most points by the Utes (2-0) since an 82-6 victory over UTEP in 1973. The Wildcats are 1-1.
Wilson completed 14-of-19 passes for 264 yards and added 93 yards on just three carries. The sophomore did not play in the second half.
Wilson ran for a 51-yard touchdown and threw for two more scores in a historic 35-point second quarter. Since the school started tracking such statistics in 1968, the previous record was 31 points in a 68-27 win at Iowa State in 2010.
Dres Anderson had four catches for 103 yards and Sean Fitzgerald had two TD receptions as Utah rolled up 630 yards of total offense, the eighth best mark in school history.
