Wyoming Vs. Texas Final Score: Longhorns Emerge With 37-17 Victory

The Wyoming Cowboys' chances at upsetting the Texas Longhorns were short-lived, as they fell on Saturday night, 37-17, in Austin. Wyoming held a 9-7 lead midway into the second quarter before letting Texas pull away.

Wyoming moved into that 9-7 lead on a Stuart Williams 33-yard field goal and a Brett Smith 82-yard touchdown pass to Robert Herron. However, David Ash's 16-yard touchdown throw, D.J. Monroe's 7-yard rushing touchdown and Nick Jordan's 31-yard field goal in the second quarter put Texas in a 24-9 lead at halftime. Joe Bergeron had a touchdown run in the first quarter for the Longhorns.

Wyoming's Brett Smith threw two interceptions in the second quarter, each of which set up Texas' touchdowns on the following drive. Smith was 16-of-28 for 276 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions. Ash threw for just 156 yards, but he was 20-of-27 and didn't have any interceptions to go with his one touchdown pass.

Joe Bergeron and Malcolm Brown combined for 215 yards on 29 carries and each scored a touchdown in the second half.

Wyoming (0-1) hosts the Toledo Rockets on Sept. 8. Texas (1-0) welcomes New Mexico to Austin next week.
