Wyoming's Brett Smith Named MWC Co-Offensive Player Of The Week

The Mountain West Conference named Wyoming Cowboys quarterback Brett Smith as a Co-Offensive Player of the Week on Monday. The sophomore from Salem, Ore., threw for 365 yards and five touchdowns to lead the Cowboys to a 40-37 overtime victory against Idaho.

Smith completed 23-of-35 passes and didn't throw an interception during the win. He rushed for 22 yards to give him 387 total yards on the day, the second-most of his career, while receiver Chris McNeill benefited the most from Smith's stellar outing, catching eight balls for 219 yards.

The big day for Smith was a good sign after missing the prior game with a head injury. The Cowboys lost that one to Cal-Poly, and with the win at Idaho got their first win of the year, moving to 1-3.

Sharing the weekly honors in the MWC was Stefphon Jefferson, not bad company for Smith considering the Nevada running back leads the nation in both rushing and scoring. Jefferson holds an average of 174.8 rush yards per game and three touchdowns.
