Team Notes

  • The game was the 144th meeting in the Border Wars between Wyoming and Colorado State. The Rams led the all-time series over the Cowboys 59–50–5.
  • Wyoming has won six of the last seven meetings in the series.
  • The Pokes won their third straight road game for the first time since 1999.

Offensive Notes

  • Jayden Clemons threw the first touchdown pass of his career on a 32-yard pass to Alex Brown for the game-winning score in the fourth quarter with just under 11 minutes remaining.
  • For Brown, the 32-yard touchdown reception was the first touchdown reception of his career.
  • Clemons finished with a career-best 90 passing yards, going 7-for-11 on passing attempts with no interceptions.
  • Wyoming starting QB Andrew Peasley was forced out of the game due to an injury on the first offensive possession of the second quarter. He was replaced by Clemons, a redshirt sophomore.

Defensive Notes

  • Linebacker Easton Gibbs had his third double-digit tackles game of the season and eighth of his career. He finished with 13 tackles.
  • Cowboy cornerback Deron Harrell had his first career interception as a Wyoming Cowboy. The interception came in the end zone and prevented what would have been a Colorado State touchdown late in the first half.
  • Wyoming ended the night with five sacks, one shy of its season high, which it had against Utah State and New Mexico.

Special Notes

  • Cowboy senior safety Miles Williams made one of the most important plays of the game when he recovered a muffed punt at the CSU 18-yard line. This play ultimately set up the game-winning fourth-quarter touchdown.
  • Wyoming gave up a 72-yard punt return on its first punt of the game. It was the first time since 2014 against Boise State that the Pokes gave up a punt return for a touchdown.
  • Cowboy punter Clayton Stewart had a good night, placing three of his six punts inside the CSU 20-yard line.
  • Wyoming kicker John Hoylan missed just his third field goal of the season, but bounced back to nail the extra point that gave his team the 14–13 lead.
