LARAMIE -- How 'bout them Cowboys?

Wyoming overcame an early 17-0 deficit and scored 20 unanswered in a 35-33 victory over Texas Tech in double overtime.

Was there ever a doubt?

In all seriousness, I didn't think the Pokes would be overmatched in this one. Early on, it looked a tad scary. Then, the real defense showed up for the home team, who held the high-powered Red Raiders off the scoreboard for nearly three full quarters.

Huge win for Craig Bohl and Co.

Fresno State also pulled off a nice win over a Power-5 opponent, knocking off Purdue 29-25 in West Lafayette. I didn't have a lot of faith in the Bulldogs. After all, that roster was decimated by graduation, including losing Mountain West MVP Jake Haener.

The defending champs aren't going away that easily.

Boise State, Colorado State, Nevada, Hawaii and New Mexico all got thumped by the big boys last weekend.

That won't happen again this week -- the Rams are off.

Will definitely be keeping an eye on Albertsons Stadium, where the Broncos are a 3.5-point underdog against UCF. Will also be paying attention to the happenings in Tuscaloosa where Alabama hosts Texas.

The Longhorns and Pokes will hook up next Saturday in Austin.

Here's a question I've been pondering: Do you want UT to lose, win or keep it close in regards to how they will enter the Pokes' game?

I seriously don't know.


Here's this week's matchups and betting odds:
Portland State at Wyoming

UNLV (+37.5) at Michigan

Cal Poly at San Jose State

Idaho at Nevada

UCF (-3.5) at Boise State

Air Force (-13.5) at Sam Houston State

UCLA (-14.5) at San Diego State

Tennessee Tech at New Mexico

Idaho State at Utah State

Eastern Washington at Fresno State

Albany at Hawaii

Texas (+7) at Alabama

* No lines for FCS games

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.
