New Mexico Bowl 2010, BYU vs. UTEP: Jake Heaps Freshman Mistake Gives UTEP Hope
Methodically driving down the field, Jake Heaps had a chance to increase the lead to 38-10, but instead made an awful mistake.
He had a receiver open in the flats who would've picked up a first down on 3rd-and-6. He also had a receiver breaking deep. A decent lob pass would've been enough to get it in to him for a touchdown.
Instead the freshman decided to throw a laster all the way to the deep receiver but a UTEP defender, Travaun Nixon, simply stepped in front, picked it off, and returned it all the way to BYU territory.
With just a minute left, they had a chance to score and close the lead a little bit, picking up some momentum in the process to take into the locker room.
An incomplete pass ended the half though as time expired.
