Cowboy Joe: WR Josh Doctsonstepped up bigtime with three catches for 129 yards and two touchdowns. The first one was a 80 yarder where Bretty Smith hit Doctson in-stride. It was the best deep ball I've seen Smith throw this year. Later Doctson caught the game winner and his size and speed helped him separate from his defender.

Cowboy Low: The third quarter. The defense and offense struggled big time during the third quarter. Wyoming allowed 14 points and also had a turnover on an interception. The fans were out of it and things weren't looking very good. Luckily there was still a quarter to play.

Cowboy Foe: Raymond Carter made the most of his final game as a Ram. The senior rushed for 158 yards and two touchdowns. Garrett Grayson gave the Pokes fits with his mobility but he also had three interceptions.

Truly another Border War classic with this game. The crowd support for Wyoming was tremendous and when the crowd got back into the game in the fourth quarter it really pumped up the players. The Pokes should also have a great crowd advantage at the New Mexico Bowl.
