QB Sean Chambers trying to keep perspective amid fast start
LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Sean Chambers is the talk of the town.
That's what happens when you go from being the backup quarterback to the starter. Wyoming's true freshman signal caller did that three games ago and has had a rousing introduction to the Mountain West in helping Wyoming get on its first winning streak of the season heading into Saturday's game against Air Force.
Despite demotion, Tyler Vander Waal committed to Wyoming
LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming's offense has undergone a transformation with Sean Chambers at the controls.
Since the true freshman took over at quarterback 10 quarters ago, the unit has scored eight touchdowns. The Cowboys have put up 24.6 points (six more than their season average) and 404.3 yards a game (86 more than their season average), including season-highs in both categories during a two-game winning streak that still has Wyoming clinging to hope of a third straight bowl game.

Wyoming quarterback decision in the air
LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Sean Chambers made his collegiate debut Saturday in Wyoming's loss to Utah State, but that doesn't necessarily mean the freshman won't have the same class designation next season.
A new rule implemented by the NCAA before the season allows players to play up to four games without burning their redshirt. Wyoming has four games left starting with Friday's rivalry tilt at Colorado State, so if Chambers plays in all of them, he'll lose a year of eligibility.
Thompson’s 2 TDs lead Utah State over Wyoming 24-16
LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Its high-scoring offense largely kept at bay, Utah State turned to defense and special teams to earn its sixth straight victory, 24-16 over Wyoming on Saturday.
Jontrell Rocquemore's 20-yard interception return on the first play of the second half set up a 3-yard TD run by Darwin Thompson, and Savon Scarver's 99-yard kick return late in the third — his third career scoring return — put Utah State (6-1, 3-0 Mountain West) up 24-6.
