Brett Smith delivered a 16-yard touchdown strike to Brandon Miller with seven minutes remaining to put Wyoming back up 14-7. With 3:27 left in the quarter and the Rams threatening, Cowboys cornerback Blair Brown picked off a pass at the Wyoming 1 and returned it all the way for a touchdown, giving Wyoming the 21-7 advantage at the quarter break.
