The Cougars narrowly escaped Rutgers last week with their first win.
They scored with just 14 seconds left in the game on a connection from quarterback Luke Falk to receiver River Cracraft. That performance earned Falk a player of the week nod as well as the team’s first win of the season.
With Wyoming struggling to fight off the injury bug, they will do their best to stop this potent, high flying offense of Washington State.
Quarterback Cameron Coffman sat out all of last season with an injury.
He injured himself week 1 after throwing for 282 yards and 2 scores and then missed week 2 with an injury. In week 2, backup quarterback Josh Allen went down for the season with a shoulder injury.
Now recovering from his knee issue, Coffman is back at the helm and ready to get down to business.
Coffman will get some help in the ground game from running back Brian Hill. In two games, Hill has amassed 272 yards with an astounding 8.8 average per carry. Shaun Wick has added to threat on the ground, gaining 97 yards and a touchdown on 26 touches.
Coffman will be looking the direction of receiver Tanner Gentry, who has compiled 182 yards and a score this season through the air.
The Cowboy defense will definitely have their hands full as they try to stop the Cougar pass attack.
Their season defensively hasn’t looked great, with the team only notching 1 sack and 2 catch break ups on the season.
The leading tackler, Lucas Wacha, has 18 tackles including 1 for loss.
Pac-12 Player of the Week Luke Falk certainly earned that award last week. Besides the game winning moment for the Cougs, Falk racked up a total of 478 yards through the air and 4 touchdowns.
Cracraft, his game winning connection, is one of 3 Cougar receivers to top 100 yards on the season already.
Cracraft has 10 catches for 147 yards and one touchdown, Dom Williams has 10 catches for 157 yards and a score and leading receiver Gabe Marks has 20 catches for 222 yards and 2 touchdowns. Keith Harrington added 8 catches for 63 yards and 2 scores of his own in the receiving corps.
On the ground, the team has featured Gerard Wicks, who has 108 yards rushing on the season.
Jeremiah Allison is leading the Cougar defense with 23 tackles, 2 for loss and a quarterback hit. Darry Paulo has 2 sacks and 2.5 tackles for loss while Peyton Pelluer has 13 tackles, 1 for loss and a forced fumble.
Destiny Vaeao has 9 tackles on the year, 1.5 for loss, a sack, a fumble recovery and a blocked kick on the season.

Free Week 3 NCAA Football Prediction
A potent passing offense taking on a defense with little to no big stop potential should be a no-brainer.
While Wyoming can put up points and the Cougars defense is still nothing to write home about, that matchup pales in comparison with the opposite.
