Coach tries to turn tide at Wyoming
Joe Glenn hasn't stopped the pain.  He has brought hope.  The Wyoming Cowboys football team is 6-32 the past three-plus seasons. Glenn, who won a Division I-AA national championship at Montana and two Division II titles at Northern Colorado, took over the sagging program Dec. 12.  The Cowboys (1-3) visit Bronco Stadium on Saturday for what Glenn calls the "premier" game on their schedule, at Boise State (2-1).  (more....)

Boise State defensive backs to get another tough test
The Idaho Statesman
Boise State's secondary doesn't have to wait long for a chance at redemption.  The defensive backs who allowed 408 passing yards last week at Oregon State will face one of the nation's most prolific passing attacks Saturday when the Wyoming Cowboys (1-3) visit Bronco Stadium.  About 5,000 tickets remain for the non-conference game. Kickoff is set for 6:07 p.m.  (more....)

College Football Saturday: Will BSU?s receivers show up against Wyoming?
The Idaho Statesman
Success at wide receiver is something that's expected at Boise State.  Don Hutt, Ryan Ikebe, Jay Swillie, Kipp Bedard and Mike Wilson. Those are some of the past stars.  This year's gang of eight includes Tim Gilligan, Jerry Smith, Lawrence Bady, Tony McPherson, T.J. Acree, Mark Onibokun, Brett Ralph and Drisan James.  No one is averaging more than three catches a game, no one is producing more than 53 yards a game, and the group has scored only three touchdowns in three games.  (more....)

Cowboys seek KO punch vs. Boise State
By STEVE KIGGINS Star-Tribune staff writer Saturday, September 27, 2003

BOISE, Idaho -- Oklahoma State hurt Wyoming with a punch in the mouth. Kansas delivered a body blow.  Air Force landed a stiff shot on the chin.  Their ego might be bruised, but it's going to take more than that to knock out this resilient bunch of Cowboys.  "We're fighting hard to find a way to win," UW head coach Joe Glenn said. "We're playing good football teams and giving 'em all we got. One of these days, we may catch a team with a good uppercut early in the game and get 'em on the ropes and jump on 'em and finish 'em.  "We're trying hard to get better. We're gonna keep kicking and gouging and pinching and scratching and clawing."  (more....)

DINWIDDIE THROWS FOUR TOUCHDOWNS AS BRONCOS BEAT WYOMING 33-17
by: Todd Miles (9/27/2003)
BOISE, IDAHO – Once again the blue was kind to the Broncos. A week after having their 13 game winning streak snapped at Oregon State, the Broncos started a new streak with a 33-17 win over Wyoming in front of 30,192 fans, the seventh largest crowd in Bronco Stadium history and the third straight sell out for the Broncos.  The Broncos (3-1) picked up their 14th straight win, and their 28th in their last 29 at Bronco Stadium thanks to a solid night by quarterback Ryan Dinwiddie, some special play from the special teams, and an opportunistic defense that picked off two passes and ended Wyoming quarterback Casey Bramlet's consecutive passes without an interception streak at 178. Wes Nurse did the honors picking off Bramlet in the end zone to keep the Broncos from falling behind 21-7 in the second quarter.
