Wyoming Players Happy to ‘Get the Win’ [VIDEOS]
It wasn’t one of Wyoming’s prettiest wins during the Craig Bohl era, but they found a way to grind out a victory last Saturday night in overtime.
The Cowboys prevailed 28-21 over Hawaii and started conference play 1-0 for a second straight season.
Two UW players played the role of co-hero in junior receiver James Price and sophomore linebacker Cassh Maluia.
Price was playing in his first game of the season. He broke his collarbone during Fall Camp in mid-August. He talked about the play and discussed how late in the week it was before he knew he’d be able to play. Price’s only catch was the game-winner.
Maluia is dealing with an injury to his right thumb and has to play with a “club” on his right hand. He was still able to snag the clinching interception. Cassh talked about the play, catching with the “club” and the Pokes perseverance to get the win.
Freshman running back Trey Woods was a major factor in Wyoming’s win. He ran for a career-high 135 yards on just 15 carries. He got his first career TD and also added a key 59-yard run that set up the Cowboys’ third TD.
Wyoming still hasn’t run and passed for 100 yards or more in the same game. QB Josh Allen had to fight through some dropped passes, but finished only 9-19 for 92 yards. Allen wanted to play on the “north” end of the field, which is where they won the Northern Illinois game last season. He talked about Price returning, the drops and more.
The Cowboys return to action Saturday versus Texas State at 2 p.m.
