The Wyoming Cowboys failed to get two key defensive stops and lost their Mountain West Conference opener at Nevada Saturday night, 35-to-28 in overtime. UW surrendered the game-tying touchdown with 1:18 left in regulation and saw the Wolfpack score on the second play of overtime. Then the Cowboys couldn’t get the equalizer on their OT possession and fell in Reno.
The Wyoming Cowboys inability to stop the run proved too much to overcome, as UW lost their 2012 season opener to the 15th-ranked Texas Longhorns 37-17 Saturday night at Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium in Austin, Texas. The Longhorns rolled up 280 yards rushing on 47 carries and had two running backs top the century mark in the victory.
