Turnovers kept the game from being more lopsided. CSU lost four fumbles in the game, including one in the Wyoming end zone.
Van Pelt got the Rams on the board first with a 39-yard scoring jaunt. After the Cowboys tied it up, Dexter Wynn lit up the Pokes with a 95-yard kick-off return for a score, and the Rams were rolling. It was close for awhile; the Rams led 17-14 midway through the third quarter. But CSU then erupted for 24 straight points to ice the contest.
"Our offensive line, our defense, the whole team just did a good job," said Van Pelt after the game. The CSU defense picked off Wyo quarterback Casey Bramlet four times - three in the second half - and recovered a Cowboy fumble, so the Rams ended up winning the turnover battle.
It's a short week for the Rams, who travel to Louisville this week for a nationally televised Thursday night game against the Cardinals. The game is a re-match of last season's Liberty Bowl.
