True freshman quarterback Brett Smith said he runs “angry.”
Junior running back Alvester Alexander said he often tells Smith to throw him the ball anyway, even if he’s not open. Alexander was open on a 48-yard pass play in the second half.
Coach Dave Christensen said because he’s “grumpy” he won’t allow his team to be distracted going on the road for the first time next week at Bowling Green.
But for now it was all smiles after UW beat Texas State 45-10 Saturday at War Memorial Stadium.
Some quick notes:
–Alexander’s 1-yard TD run in the first quarter extended his streak to six where he’s had at least one rushing touchdown in a game.
–Junior Korey Jones’ three sacks — on three consecutive plays in the second quarter — tied for the most in a single game in school history.
–The 45 points was the most since Christensen became the coach in 2009.
–Christensen described going for it on fourth-and-2 at the Texas State 15 late in the first quarter as both “stupid” and “selfish.” Said he wanted a touchdown, and it wasn’t because of a lack of confidence in true freshman kicker Daniel Sullivan.
–UW was 3 of 14 on third downs against Weber State last week. It was 11 of 16 against Texas State.
Will post video interviews from the post game soon. See Sunday’s Wyoming Tribune Eagle and Laramie Boomerang for more coverage.
