Wyoming Football: News and notes ahead of Texas

Cowboys limp to finish line in win over Portland State


Peasley is coming off one of the best performances of his career last Saturday, throwing for 201 yards and three touchdowns in a 31-17 victory over visiting Portland State. The Oregon product didn't play in the fourth quarter and was seen on the sideline with an ice pack on his right shoulder.

Wyoming head coach Craig Bohl said "we're looking at different things" when asked if it was precautionary to remove Peasley from the game.

"And it was good to get Evan some work," he added.

Bohl was asked again Monday during his weekly press conference how Peasley was feeling health-wise after taking numerous hits in the Cowboys' season-opening win over Texas Tech back on Sept. 2.

"He's taken some hits, but he's feeling pretty good," Bohl said.

Peasley told Ryan Thorburn of the Casper Star-Tribune Monday he was up for the challenge of facing the Longhorns.

"Heck yeah," Peasley told the Star-Tribune. "We’re always going to be an underdog no matter who we play, so I think it will be fun for us to get this opportunity to go into a big crowd against a No. 4-ranked team in the nation. We just have to stay humble and play with Cowboy grit. That’s what it comes down to for us.”

Svoboda took three snaps under center in Wyoming's win over the Red Raiders. The Arizona product also ran 11 plays over the final 15 minutes against Portland State.

He has yet to attempt a pass.

Wyoming and Texas are scheduled to kickoff at 6 p.m. Mountain Time. The game is televised exclusively on the Longhorn Network.

University of Wyoming’s Top 50 Football Players

During the summer of 2021, counted down the Top 50 football players in University of Wyoming history, presented by Premier Bone & Joint Centers, Worthy of Wyoming.

The rules are simple: What was the player's impact while in Laramie? That means NFL stats, draft status or any other accolade earned outside of UW is irrelevant when it comes to this list.

This isn't a one-man job. This task called for a panel of experts. Joining 7220's Cody Tucker are Robert GagliardiJared NewlandRyan Thorburn, and Kevin McKinney.

We all compiled our own list of 50 and let computer averages do the work. Think BCS -- only we hope this catalog is fairer.
