* BYU’s run defense improved significantly after head coach Bronco Mendenhall took over the defensive play-calling duties following the October 1 loss at Utah State.

* QB Jake Heaps had a promising November, with nine touchdowns and one interception in four games. As a true freshman he showed better composure and decision-making that the other veteran quarterbacks on the team.


* The Miners came into the game having lost five of their last six games.

* UTEP started the season at 5-1.

* Injuries took a heavy toll on the senior-heavy roster.

* QB Trevor Vittatoe was solid in the first half of the season (14 TD’s, 2 interceptions), but an ankle injury hampered his effectiveness. He wasn’t 100 percent for the bowl game.

* WR Kris Adams had 11 receiving touchdowns ranked fourth in Conference USA, and averaged an unheard of 20.8 yards a catch.

* WR Marlon McClure ranked fifth nationally with an average 29.8 yards on kick returns. McClure returned two kicks back for touchdowns, including a 100-yard effort against Arkansas.
