LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Three Wyoming football players have been named to the Preseason All-Mountain West Conference Team.

The team is selected by Mountain West Conference media members.
LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — With quarterback Josh Allen now a member of the Buffalo Bills, the NFL Draft talk surrounding Wyoming can shift to the other side of the ball. CBS Sports' Chris Trapasso listed senior Cowboys defensive end Carl Granderson as No. 65 on his list of top 100 prospects for the 2019 draft.
LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Last year, the Wyoming football team had arguably the Mountain West's best defense. This spring, the Cowboys likely could put together a solid defense just with injured players. (Hypothetically, of course.)
Carl Granderson, Kevin Prosser and Josiah Hall at defensive end. Sidney Malauulu, Conner Cain, Ravontae Holt and Javaree Jackson at defensive tackle. Ben Wisdorf at linebacker. Marcus Epps at safety.
LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Junior safety Andrew Wingard has more or less been the go-to image of Wyoming's defense the past few years. His flowing blond locks are a visible trademark, his outspoken nature has provided bulletin board material for at least one Mountain West rival, and his gaudy tackling numbers have earned him recognition since his freshman season.
But fellow junior safety Marcus Epps, quietly, has been beside him the whole time.
LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen and strong safety Andrew Wingard have been named Mountain West Conference players of the week.

LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Chase Appleby probably isn't the first player you'll notice on Wyoming's defense.
You might notice safety Andrew Wingard and linebacker Lucas Wacha, what with their flowing locks and high tackle totals. You'd probably notice linebacker D.J. May and defensive end Carl Granderson, two of the defense's most imposing, athletic players. Or maybe the blazing speed of cornerback Rico Gafford is the first thing to catch your eye.
LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Logan Wilson had a night, and a morning, to remember.
Wyoming's redshirt freshman linebacker finished with nine tackles, including one for a 6-yard loss, in the Cowboys' 40-34 season-opening victory over Northern Illinois that stretched into the wee hours Sunday morning. The Natrona County High School graduate also recovered a fumble at the goal line to stop the Huskies' first drive in overtime.
