Wyoming LB named Mountain West defensive player of week
LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming junior linebacker Logan Wilson has been named the Mountain West Conference defensive player of the week by College Sports Madness for his performance last Friday against Colorado State.
The Casper native helped lead the Cowboys to a 34-21 win over rival Colorado State with 12 tackles, 2.5 tackles for a loss and one pass breakup.
For the season, Wilson ranks No. 9 in the league and No. 55 in the nation in tackles per game (8.8), and he leads Wyoming in total tackles, with 79.
The Cowboy defense held Colorado State to only 20 rushing yards and 21 points, while forcing three CSU turnovers.
Wilson was a Second Team All-Mountain West Conference selection a year ago as a sophomore, and he was the 2016 MW Freshman of the Year.
