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.
