Cowboys Blast Texas State, 45-10

Cowboys Blast Texas State, 45-10”

Gafford returned an interception 37 yards for a score. The Cowboys are averaging 104.5 yards rushing and 165.0 yards passing so far this season. UW forced two Texas State turnovers on the day, while committing only one turnover itself. After the week off, this year's Cowboys hit the ground running with five consecutive games against Mountain Division foes.

Saturday's game won't affect Wyoming's goal of winning a Mountain West championship concretely. His three touchdown passes improved his career total to 34, and tied him for eighth place with Craig Burnett (1986-87). The Pokes scored again 11 seconds later on Gafford's pick six. Wilson's fumble return for a touchdown was his first this season and third of his career.

"I think it's an indication of we have more athleticism and more explosion on our football team", head coach Craig Bohl said.

"We have to get this game". That is a really hard feat in college football. "Really pleased with that but moreover happy with the win".

But the Cowboys would explode in the second quarter, scoring 31 points, with the offense, defense and special teams units all generating points in the second quarter. After the Bobcats took a 3-0 lead, Allen found Johnson from 22 yards out that UW ahead 7-3.

Wyoming wrapped up the half with two up-tempo scoring drives in the final 141 seconds. Junior quarterback Allen completed 3 of 4 passes on the drive for 38 yards.

AIR YARDS: The 92 passing yards indicate a lack of downfield passing. Smith came in the game for one play following a play where Allen lost his helmet.

Wilson's TD came on the Bobcats' second offensive play of the third quarter.

Fifth-year senior quarterback Damian Williams just connected with senior wide receiver Elijah King to cut the Cowboy lead down to 14-10 in the second quarter, but Wyoming sophomore cornerback Tyler Hall took the ensuing kickoff 95 yards for a touchdown. It was Gafford's first touchdown of his Wyoming career, and gave the Pokes a 14-3 lead. By the end of the afternoon, Wyoming was able to field its second-string offense and defense as rain chased away what remained of 21,784 fans at War Memorial Stadium.

On the first play of overtime, Wyoming scored on a 25-yard touchdown pass from Josh Allen to James Price.

After that it was all Cowboys. He returned it 18 yards for a TD. Compare that to last season, when a mix of Allen, workhorse back Brian Hill and an experienced receiving corps paced the Pokes to 434.5 yards and 35.9 points per game. A 39-yard pass from Allen to Avante' Cox did most of the damage on the first, setting up a 15-yard Allen-to-Johnson touchdown. Willie Jones III had 57 yards rushing, while Williams added 91 yards passing.

Against Hawaii, Wyoming had its first 100-yard rusher this season when Trey Woods, who just converted from linebacker at the start of the season, gained 135 yards. With only 53 seconds remaining in the half, the Wyoming offense did an outstanding job managing the clock. On the play, Allen rolled right and, while on the run, placed a pass over the top of a defender where only his receiver had a chance to catch it. Rothe's field goal capped off the 31-point explosion by the Cowboys and the halftime score was 31-10 in favor of Wyoming.

The Cowboys scored their final points of the day when Allen connected with sophomore wide receiver Austin Cooper on an 8-yard touchdown pass. Wilson led the defense with 12 tackles. Unlike a year ago, however, Wyoming had a Mountain West game, that 28-21 defeat of Hawaii, on the slate before finishing non-conference play. The Bobcats' 44-14 loss to UTSA was actually the first game all year in which Texas State won the turnover battle. Utah State is also now 3-2, and 1-0 in the Mountain West.
