Las Vegas Bowl
The 2006 BYU championship run ended with a Pioneer PureVision Las Vegas Bowl championship as the Cougars (11-2) dominated Oregon (7-6), 38-8, to finish the season with a 10-game winning streak in front of a Sam Boyd Stadium record crowd of 44,615. The Mountain West Conference champion BYU team set a school record for margin of victory in a bowl game, beating the Ducks by 30 points. Previously, the largest margin of victory for a BYU team in a bowl game was a 25-point defeat of Oklahoma in the 1994 Copper Bowl. BYU dominated all facets of the game, out-gaining Oregon 548 total yards to 260 total yards. BYU passed for 375 compared to Oregon’s 166 and rushed for 173 compared to the Ducks 94. BYU seniors John Beck, Johnny Harline and Curtis Brown finished their careers in style. Beck completed 28-of-46 passes for 375 yards and two touchdowns. Harline, who was named Pioneer PureVision Las Vegas Bowl MVP, caught nine passes for a career-best--and Pioneer PureVision Las Vegas Bowl record--181 yards and a touchdown. Brown had 17 carries for 120 yards and two touchdowns and also caught seven passes for 55 yards. Brown also became the first BYU runner to rush for over 1,000 yards in consecutive seasons. Beck and Brown became the first quarterback/running back combo to pass for 3,000 yards and rush for 1,000 in the same season twice
