Cowboys shutout in the second half

The Wyoming offense ground to a halt in the second half and the Utes scored 19 unanswered points in the second half to win 22-10 on Saturday. Freshman Jordan Wynn started the second half and provided the spark the Utah offense needed to come from behind to win.

Utah RB Eddie Wide was impressive on the ground with 125 yards and a touchdown on 24 carries. The Utes had two field goals in the third quarter to bring the score to 10-9. Wynn's 22 yard TD pass to Jereme Brooks was the first of his career and gave the Utes their first lead of the game in fourth quarter. Wide scored his TD with 92 seconds remaining in the game after Wyoming turned the ball over on downs deep in their own territory.

The Cowboys offensive line was stellar in the first half and gave Carta-Samuels plenty of time to throw the ball.
During the second half A-CS never looked comfortable as the Utah defense stepped up their pressure and sacked him a number of times. Several times he had to throw the ball away to avoid being sacked in the second hafl.

The Cowboys did have one shot to win the game as they were down by 1 and were driving with four minutes left. Robert Benjamin who was recently converted to WR had a pass go through his fingers which was then intercepted by Utah.

Wyoming drops to 4-4 on the year and 2-2 in the Mountain West. Next weekend the Cowboys return home to face off against the BYU Cougars.
