Tanner Mangum bailed out on TD throw in BYU's Poinsettia Bowl win over Wyoming
Mangum and BYU had to overcome the rain in the Poinsettia Bowl
BYU and Wyoming had to deal with rain showers during their San Diego vacation in the Poinsettia Bowl on Wednesday night. The elements played a role in the game's low-scoring first half but didn't have an apparent impact on the game's most bizarre play, this deflection touchdown reception by junior tight end Tanner Balderree.
The touchdown gave BYU a double-digit lead after Wyoming opened the second half with a 16-play, eight-minute touchdown drive to cut the Cougars' lead to 10-7. Mangum didn't have the best start to his night in the rain, so getting bailed out here by circumstance and Balderree's awareness played a big role in BYU's efforts to capture a win in Kelani Sitake's first bowl game as a head coach.
The Cougars ultimately prevailed 24-21, despite being outscored by the Cowboys 14-7 over the final quarter of the game.
