LARAMIE, Wyo. — Wyoming bounced back from their first Mountain West Conference loss in style as the Cowboys took advantage of seven New Mexico turnovers to roll to a 42-3 win at War Memorial Stadium.

The Cowboys (5-3, 3-1) also broke the school record for turnovers forced in a game, turning those Lobo miscues into 35 points.

Wyoming QB Josh Allen, meanwhile, had another big game with 234 passing yards and four touchdowns. He also added a rushing touchdown as the Cowboys scored all 42 of their points in the first half. That included Austin Fort’s two touchdown catches, both of which went for touchdowns.

The Lobos (3-5, 1-4) avoided being shut out for the second time in three games with a fourth-quarter 42-yard field goal by Jason Sanders.

Wyoming will look to keep it rolling when it hosts Colorado State in the “Border War” next Saturday while UNM will try to get back on track at home against Utah State on Saturday.
