LOGAN, Utah -- Jim Bridger's Rifle now resides on the high plains of Laramie.

If you ask Craig Bohl, that's exactly where it belongs, too.

Wyoming's eighth-year head coach said his team finally hit its stride in a dominating 44-17 victory over Utah State Saturday night inside Maverik Stadium. This wasn't just any ol' win, either. The Cowboys were explosive on the ground, through the air, in the kicking game and finally, for the first time since Week 3, won the turnover battle.

If you don't think this one meant something to Bohl, just take a glimpse of the postgame celebration in the visiting locker room.

He wanted the Aggies to hear his team belt out "Ragtime Cowboy Joe."

Complaints were far and few between for the UW faithful -- a pleasant change -- on the world wide web during this one. So, like we did after the Border War win over Colorado State, we decided to "borrow" some rants from some very disgruntled Utah State fans.




FACEBOOK: Ron Weltmer What team is this???? Lets go!!!!

FACEBOOK: Dan Haley Love the play calling. Throwing on 1st down! Need to kick off into the endzone. Giving them great field position on those kicks. Otherwise one of the season’s best halves of football especially for the offense. There’s no quit in these guys!

FACEBOOK: Patrick Fitzgerald In 1906 Bradbury Robinson attempted the first forward pass for St Louis University starting a year where they outscored their opponents 407 - 11. 115 years later and halfway through the season Craig Bohl finally figures out that HIS offense can use this new idea of the forward pass. Congratulations Craig.

Just The Facts: Size Doesn't Matter For Wyoming's War Memorial Stadium

Did you know it would take the populations of Gillette (32,857), Laramie (32,381), Rock Springs (23,319), Sheridan (17,844) and Wright (1,200) to create a sellout inside Michigan's famed 107,601-seat Big House, the largest college football stadium in the nation?

For those of you not familiar with the Cowboy State, those are Wyoming's third through sixth most inhabited cities, along with the small mining town in Campbell County.
