The Wyoming Cowboys opened the scoring against the Air Force Falcons with a touchdown on the first drive of the game. Nearly six and a half minutes were shed on the clock, but that's what the Cowboys want to do on Saturday. Quarterback Brett Smith went 5-of-6 for 47 yards on the drive while he, Kody Sutton and Alvester Alexander rushed eight times for 38 yards. Smith rushed into the end zone for a one-yard touchdown and the 6-0 lead. Daniel Sullivan was wide on the extra point attempt.
On the Falcons' first drive of the game, Tim Jefferson nearly ended it before it even began. He rushed for a four-yard gain before fumbling the ball. Asher Clark was in the right place and able to recover the ball and maintain Air Force's possession. Wes Cobb followed two plays later with a 44-yard run and then saw the Falcons get the ball to the one-yard line. However, after going for it on fourth down, Jefferson was unable to punch the ball in for a score, ending a streak of 25 consecutive scores while in the red zone.
