Wyoming 41, UNLV 14
Brett Smith passed for two touchdowns and caught a pass for
another to lead Wyoming past UNLV 41-14 on Saturday.
The victory, in the Mountain West Conference opener for both
teams, snapped a two-game losing streak for Wyoming (4-2, 1-0). It
was Wyoming’s fourth consecutive home-game victory against the
Smith completed 10 of 19 passes for 96 yards and rushed 10 times
for 59 yards.
Chris McNeill added a 76-yard score on a punt return, making up
for a fumbled punt earlier in the game.
The loss was the third straight for the Rebels (1-5, 0-1) and
their 13th consecutive loss on the road. Seeking to jumpstart an
offense that was averaging 137 passing yards a game, UNLV started a
new quarterback, Sean Reilly, who threw for just 79 yards.
Dionza Bradford led the Rebels with 104 yards on 22 rushes, and
Tim Cornett scored two rushing TDs.
