The Buffalo native and senior offensive tackle talks about playing in another game against another big-time opponent as the Cowboys host No. 9 Nebraska today at War Memorial Stadium.
The Wyoming sophomore middle linebacker talks about why he had a career-high 11 tackles last week at Bowling Green, and also looks ahead to No. 9 Nebraska on Saturday.
Notes and quotes from Wyoming’s Monday interview session with coach Dave Christensen and selected players and assistant coaches:
–“Two years ago we won a number of games that had nothing to do with our offense and defense. We won those games because of turnover margin and our kicking game. That was obviously the case last Saturday,” said Christensen on his team forcing six turnovers and blocking two kicks last Saturday at Bowling Green.
–Christensen said he talks to the players at least twice a week on turnovers and ball security. Will continue to do so, if not talk about it more.”
–Christensen said in the Bowling Green game there some “good, bad, ugly and really good.”
Wyoming co-offensive line coach Jim Harding played his college football at Toledo, about 25 miles up the road from Bowling Green. Find out what Harding thinks of the Cowboys Bowling Green today.
Pass defense: Bowling Green averages 297.5 passing yards per game. A consistent pass rush will go a long way in helping Wyoming slow down the pass, but so will solid and consistent coverage in the secondary.

Wyoming’s first-year offensive coordinator talks about going back to Bowling Green, where he spent eight years of his coaching career (including six as head coach from 2003-08). Brandon also talks about UW’s big-play offense (see my column in Thursday’s Wyoming Tribune Eagle and Laramie Boomerang).
