Matt Johns finished the game at quarterback, completing 14-of-23 passes for 193 yards. Johns threw a touchdown pass to Kyle Dockins late in the fourth quarter.
UVa kicker Ian Frye went 4-for-4 on the day, including a 46-yard make in the fourth quarter.
After UVa led at halftime 16-13, BYU opened up a 34-19 lead by the fourth quarter. A 9-yard touchdown run by Khalek Shepherd cut the lead to 34-26, but BYU's Adam Hine returned the ensuing kickoff for 99-yards to seal the win.
