To me, the day belonged to the defense in Wyoming’s 42-10 home-opening win over Idaho Saturday.
Eight tackles for loss, seven quarterback sacks, seven three-and-outs, four straight to start the game and two turnovers that led to touchdowns. Granted, Idaho wasn’t very good but the defense set the tone for this win as the offense struggled to get going.
The 344 yards of total offense allowed was the fewest UW has given up since Nov. 19, 2011 against New Mexico (396).
Here’s what coach Dave Christensen had to say about the defense, and about the game in general.
I get into the defense more in my column in Sunday’s Wyoming Tribune Eagle and Laramie Boomerang, and also at wyosports.net.
