The Laramie Boomerang reports that a case against former player Carl Granderson was filed in Albany County Circuit Court this week.
LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Craig Bohl has raised the expectations.
Five years into his tenure at Wyoming, Bohl has led the Cowboys to three straight non-losing seasons. He inherited a program that had two straight losing seasons heading into the 2014 season and had two more before Wyoming broke through under Bohl with a Mountain West Mountain Division title in 2016.
LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming will not be heading to a postseason bowl this season after having gone to a bowl the last two years.
The Cowboys finished with a bowl eligible 6-6 record this season after winning their last four games but did not receive a bowl invitation. Six other Mountain West Conference teams that had better records did receive bowl invites.
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Xazavian Valladay and Nico Evans combined for more than 300 yards rushing and three touchdowns for Wyoming as the Cowboys became bowl eligible Saturday with a 31-3 win over New Mexico.
Valladay had 192 yards and two scores, and Evans, who did not practice all week because of a right ankle injury went for 142 yards and one touchdown.
LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming coach Craig Bohl says defensive tackle Youhanna Ghaifan (yo-HAWN'-uh guh-FAWN') has been suspended indefinitely after Ghaifan was charged with two misdemeanor offenses in Fort Collins, Colorado.
A news release from the Wyoming athletic department said Ghaifan was issued a summons by Fort Collins police for misdemeanor false imprisonment and misdemeanor harassment on Friday morning.
Wyoming was scheduled to play Colorado State on Friday night.
LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — The question everybody is asking regarding Wyoming's quarterback situation won't be answered until the Cowboys tee it up against Colorado State on Friday night.
LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming hasn't had a problem running the ball with Nico Evans.
The Cowboys' senior running back has gashed defenses when he's been on the field. Of the four games Evans has played — he missed two with bruised ribs — he's rushed for at least 140 yards in three of them while his 7.8 yards per carry is tops in the Mountain West.
Balancing out Evans' production through the air has been the season-long issue.
LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — A signature Gentry catch was on display Monday morning at Wyoming football practice. A tattooed single-digit receiver went up and made a 50-50 ball look routine. Cowboy fans have gotten accustomed to those catches over the years, though the accompanying numbers are a tad bigger now. Five, instead of 4, on the jersey. Six-foot-3, instead of 6-2, on the roster.
LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — When asked about his motivation for running a more physical camp this fall, Craig Bohl did not beat around the bush.
"We need to run the ball better," the Wyoming head coach said.
LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Ayden Eberhardt is on a roll. In spring camp, he stood out in practice to coaches and on television as Josh Allen's only Pro Day receiving target who was still an active Cowboy.
Then, this summer, he got a text from head coach Craig Bohl.
LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming puts on full pads for the first time Wednesday as the Cowboys continue fall practice in Laramie.
The Cowboys are now only 25 days away from the season opener at New Mexico State on Aug. 25.
Head coach Craig Bohl says the practices are starting to wear down some of the players but overall he says the team is in really good health.
LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming coach Craig Bohl says linebacker Cassh Maluia (mahl-uh-WEE'-uh) will serve a one-game suspension this fall after his recent arrest for driving under the influence.
In addition, Bohl says Maluia must also go through mandatory counseling, complete the AWARE training program on campus and complete 50 hours of community service.
The coach says this is a learning opportunity for Maluia as well as the rest of the team.
LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming coach Craig Bohl says there's a chance that running back Trey Woods will be able to play this fall.
Bohl previously had said that Woods, who led the Cowboys in rushing in 2017, would miss the upcoming season with a shoulder injury that kept him out for most of spring camp.
LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Redshirt freshman Tyler Vander Waal is listed No. 1 on the final spring depth chart as Wyoming seeks to find a new quarterback to replace NFL bound Josh Allen.
Vander Waal was ranked ahead of senior Nick Smith for the starting job although head coach Craig Bohl emphasized that the quarterback competition, like all other positions on the team, will continue into the fall.
FARGO, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota State's Chris Klieman has signed a two-year contract extension with the perennial Football Championship Subdivision powerhouse.
Klieman is entering his fifth season leading the Bison, who have won six of the last seven FCS titles. He was an assistant at the Fargo school for three years before he was promoted to head coach when Craig Bohl moved to Wyoming.
LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Actions speak louder than words.
So while Wyoming head coach Craig Bohl spoke last fall about the physical potential of cornerback C.J. Coldon, the biggest proof that the Cowboys' coaching staff is confident in its group of young cornerbacks came this spring.
Wyoming returns only one cornerback from its 2017 defense, Tyler Hall. Nonetheless, the staff chose to move Hall to nickel back this spring.
LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Nick Smith was part of a quarterback competition in Spring 2016. He and Josh Allen, both of whom had played in a backup role for Wyoming the year before, battled for the starting quarterback spot in spring camp.
Smith lost that battle, something that probably stings a little less in hindsight, considering Allen is now a potential top pick in the upcoming NFL Draft.
LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Nick Smith has the mentality of a backup quarterback down pat. Prepare as if you're going to play, because you're always one play away.
But with the status of Josh Allen's shoulder remaining up in the air for the third straight game, maintaining that mindset would be a challenge for anyone.
Wyoming (7-5, Mountain West) vs. Central Michigan (8-4, Mid-American), Dec. 22, 4 p.m. EST
LOCATION: Boise, Idaho
Wyoming: QB Josh Allen, 1,659 yards passing, 13 touchdown passes.
Central Michigan: RB Jonathan Ward, 990 yards rushing, 9 TDs; QB Shane Morris, 2,908 yards passing, 29 total TDs.
LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming coach Craig Bohl says quarterback Josh Allen continues to make progress in treating his injured right shoulder but his status remains day-to-day.
Allen injured his throwing shoulder during the Nov. 11 game at Air Force. He sat out last weekend's home loss to Fresno State.
Bohl says he's hopeful that Allen can play in this Saturday's season finale at San Jose State.
LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen, who has been viewed as a possible high NFL draft pick next year, injured his right shoulder during the Cowboys' win over Air Force.
Coach Craig Bohl said Monday it's too early to say whether Allen will miss this weekend's game against Fresno State.
"It may come down to a game-time decision," he said.
Bohl described the injury as involving "soft tissue" and said Allen is receiving treatment. He described his status as day-to-day.
LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — The Bronze Boot wouldn't have ended up in the hands of Wyoming football team Saturday night if not for the right cleat of Cooper Rothe.
Rothe, Wyoming's sophomore kicker, set a career high with three made field goals, and the Cowboys needed every one of them in their 16-13 win over Colorado State. The fact that they came on a night cloaked in rain and snow made Rothe's game all the more impressive.
