Cowboys Win The Bronze Boot
Laramie, Wy – The Bronze Boot is going to stay in
After a near stalemate in the first half, the Wyoming Cowboys
dominated the second half in beating Colorado State 24-to-nothing
this afternoon (Saturday).
That's the first time Wyoming has shut out C-S-U since 1959.
The game featured the two best defenses in the Mountain West
Conference, and for a while it looked like neither team would score
and then the Cowboys took over in the second half.
Wyoming went up ten-to-nothing when freshman Karsten Sween
passed 34 yards to a wide-open Derrick Levy, who jogged in the last
10 yards for his first career touchdown.
On the Cowboys' next possession, Sween found Michael Ford with a
26-yard touchdown pass on fourth down to make it 17-nothing.
In the fourth quarter, Wyoming recovered a fumble by Rams
quarterback Caleb Hanie on Colorado State's 42-yard line. Three
plays later, Joseph Harris ran in from 25 yards out for the final
