In the past two weeks the Wyoming Cowboys have had their fair share of top 10 teams. In this weeks matchup between the Cowboys and the Broncos, Boise State won the battle in War Memorial Stadium. In their previous game against Virginia Tech, the Broncos defense had some trouble in defending the offense of Virginia Tech. Well this week was a completely different story. Lead by a powerful defensive line, Wyoming quarterback Austin Carta-Samuels had no time to direct his high octane spread offense.
Boise State showed from the very beginning of the game, that they are one of the best teams in the country. After a field goal by Kyle Brotzman, Wyoming quarterback Austin Carta-Samuels tried to lead his team down the field. But after a missed snap that fell into the endzone for a Boise State touchdown, it was all over for the Cowboys. On Boise State’s next scoring drive, Chris Petersen dialed up some trickey. Kellen Moore handed the ball off to running back D.J. Harper, who flipped the ball back to Moore. Moore then threw the ball 58 yards to Austin Pettis for a tocuhdown. After that Boise State continued to assert its offensive power over the weaker Wyoming defense. Doug Martin had one of his best games as a Bronco after rushing for over a hundred yards. Kellen Moore continued to show why he belongs in the Heisman race after throwing for 370 yards and 2 touchdowns.
After some stuggles on defense in their first game against Virginia Tech, Boise State showed that it also has a defense that can stike fear into its opponets. With the constant pressure from the Broncos defensive front, the Wyoming offense was only able to put up six points against the Broncos. After it was all said and done, the Broncos left War Memorial Stadium with a sound 51-6 victory over the Cowboys.
