Wyoming 'sputtered on offense' against Iowa

Wyoming 'sputtered on offense' against Iowa

The Pokes were held to 233 yards of total offense against one of the nation's top defenses. Bobbling the ball in his right hand as he was set to kick, he missed the ball and it fell to the turf, quickly recovered by Iowa's Devonte Young. "We were effective at times getting off the field and other times we were not". There weren't a lot of running throws by Allen. There is no Gentry, Jake Maulhardt and Jacob Hollister, nor is there running back Brian Hill.

"Iowa, we knew they'd be a good football team and they proved that today", Bohl said.

"This wasn't the outcome we wanted, but we'll grow from it and we'll be better", Allen said. "It sucks, but its football".

Stanley's first career touchdown came on a fourth and goal from the two yard line to put Iowa up 7-3 in the second quarter. Wyoming took over with 50 seconds left in the half, but its drive was killed by a blatant intentional grounding on Allen's part.

Despite Broad Acceptance of Ruling, John Kerry Declares Kenya's Election Wasn't Rigged
A rerun of the vote raises fears of a return to violence in a country with a history of combustible electoral politics. Chairman Wafula Chebukati noted the ruling and said there would be "changes to personnel" ahead of the new election.

Saturday's game gives Allen (and his teammates) the opportunity to make a positive impression against a power conference opponent. That backed the ball up to the UW 38.

Zaleski, listed at a robust 6-5, 215 on the official Wyoming roster at, took the snap and then stepped up, dropped the ball. then things went wrong, very wrong.

Nathan Stanley threw three touchdown passes, including a pair to tight end Noah Fant, and Iowa shut down Josh Allen and Wyoming 24-3 on Saturday. It was the second time they had connected.

One game doesn't make a season, but in this one game, it showed that this UW team - despite the same quarterback - has a different look and feel than the team that won eight games last season.
