Wyoming looks to avoid a slow start against the Vandals. It can also be found on 26 affiliate radio stations around the state.
The Cowboys held the Bobcats scoreless in the second half. Idaho bounced back after a rough opening week loss to Penn State to beat Central Washington, The Cowboys last defeated the Vandals in at home, After the big Week 1 upset over Missouri, the Cowboys trek to Texas State worried coach Craig Bohl, not sure how his young squad would respond to such a win.
However, making the jump back up to an FBS opponent and traveling to War Memorial Stadium in Laramie will prove to be a challenge for the more than three-score underdog.
Three Keys to a Wyoming Victory 1. Show the secondary really is the strength of the defense. The next week, Braden Smith had a nifty interception while Tyler Hall picked a pass for a long score that put the Cowboys up for good against the Bobcats.
Decide whether the passing game exists or not. His first two attempts were incomplete. He finished the game connecting on eight passes for just over yards. In , Wyoming averaged yards per game, but Chambers only started four of those games. The receiving core is made up of upperclassmen with something to prove as seniors Austin Conway and Raghib Ismail Jr.
Other x-factors like 6-foot-7 tight end Jackson Marcotte and Gunner Gentry have shown they can produce.
Marcotte snagged a ball by reaching around a defender at Texas State and Gentry, the younger brother of former Wyoming standout Tanner Gentry, had the longest strike of the season at 44 yards.
Get another strong performance from the offensive line. The Cowboys have not allowed a sack. According to Football Outsiders, only five other teams can claim that after two weeks of play. The offensive line is also in the top ten nationally for the fewest amount of tackles for a loss allowed.
Junior tackle Alonzo Velazquez has been a big piece to that success.
According to Pro Football Focus, Velazquez has a perfect efficiency rating when going back to pass block. It will be important for the Cowboys to continue that strong play to support their mobile quarterback to become more comfortable and establish the pass. Prediction Heading back to Laramie, the Cowboys look to control the tempo against the Vandals and avoid the needed comebacks that led them to the start.
The running game for Wyoming should be easy to establish with four viable options to carry the load.
Chambers and sophomore running back Xazavian Valladay can create a cushion for the Wyoming offense to find more of an identity and balance moving forward in the season.
