Jeremiah Allison picked off a pass to ice it with less than three minutes remaining, leading to WSU's final score -- a perfect Luke Falk fade pass to Dom Williams.
With the grab, Williams moved into a tie for third place all-time on the WSU TD receptions list with 22 (Hugh Campbell).
Wyoming led 7-0, and 14-7 before WSU took a 21-14 lead at the break.
Peyton Pelluer and Hercules Mata'afa had moments of dominance in the third and fourth quarters, helping WSU hold momentum in the second half -- and preventing the Cowboys from ripping off large chunks of yardage like they did in the first half.
Unofficially, Falk was 37-45 for 303 yards with two TDs and an interception.
Cougar running backs Gerard Wicks and Keith Harrington rushed for a combined 97 yards on 14 carries. Wicks was injured in the third quarter and was limping badly coming off the field but returned later, showing no ill effect.
Gabe Marks also appeared to suffer a leg injury, with the extent of the injury unclear. He had five grabs for 51 yards, while Williams had 53 hashes and two TDs among his three receptions. River Cracraft led all receivers, with seven grabs for 86 yards.
The Cougar D forced two turnovers, a fumble and the pick by Allison.
In a rarity, WSU's opponent produced more total offense. Wyoming had 399 yards while the Cougs had 378 yards.
Stay tuned to Cougfan.com, we have much more coming up.
