It wasn’t perfect, but Wyoming played arguably its most complete game of the season in a 45-31 win over Border War rival Colorado State Saturday in Laramie.
UW never trailed, was balanced on offense (228 yards rushing, 240 passing), forced three turnovers on defense and sophomore cornerback Blair Burns returned an interception 99 yards for a touchdown.
But the Cowboys are far from perfect. The defense allowed 512 yards to a below average offense in CSU. The Rams scored two touchdowns on long pass plays. The first was a 75-yarder where the ball bounced around a couple of times before the CSU receiver grabbed it and ran into the end zone. Bad luck? Maybe, but teams can exploit this secondary.
