The Wyoming Cowboys scored on their first two drives of the game and defeated Gardner-Webb (0-2) by a final score of 27-0 in Wyoming’s 2017 home opener on Saturday in War Memorial Stadium. Wyoming’s shutout was the first since shutting out Colorado State 44-0 on Oct. 20, 2010, in Laramie.
The Cowboys outgained the Runnin’ Bulldogs 393 to 195 in the game. Wyoming limited Gardner-Webb quarterback Tyrell Maxwell to two completions on seven pass attempts for 22 yards. Wyoming has limited both of its 2017 opponents to less than 10 completions.
The Cowboys are back home next Saturday hosting Oregon inside War Memorial Stadium for a 5:00pm kick on 1450-AM and 103.5 FM KBBS.
