Thursday Trivia: Most Points Scored In A Bowl Game

The correct answer to last week’s trivia question "How many times has a BYU player been consensus All-American?" is 13 times by eleven different players. They include quarterbacks, offensive and defensive linemen, tight ends, and a running back. Here is a list of the players and the year(s) that they were consensus All-American.
Marc Wilson, quarterback, 1979
Nick Eyre, offensive line, 1980
Jim McMahon, quarterback, 1981
Gordon Hudson, tight end, 1982 and 1983
Steve Young, quarterback, 1983
Jason Buck, defensive line, 1986
Mohammed Elewonibi, offensive line, 1989
Chris Smith, tight end, 1990
Ty Detmer, quarterback, 1990 and 1991
Luke Staley, running back, 2001
Dennis Pitta, tight end, 2009
On to this week’s question. BYU set a school record by scoring 83 points against UTEP in 1980. This record still stands today. That game was during the regular season. Saturday, BYU faces UTEP in the New Mexico Bowl. Wouldn’t it be great if BYU set a new record for most points scored in a bowl game? Therefore, this week’s question is:
What is the most points BYU has scored in a bowl game?
Leave your answer in the comments section. Come back next week when the answer is revealed and a new trivia question is asked.

  1. I'm gonna just pull the (somewhat) random number of 63 out of my head.
