Wyoming's offense is not where it wants to be

The Wyoming Cowboys football team beat Northern Colorado Saturday by the score of 35 to 7.  But the Cowboys offense is disappointed that it has not been more consistent.   After another slow first quarter, Wyoming scored 21 second quarter points to lead 21 to nothing.

But the offense only scored one more touchdown and failed to connect on several additional scoring opportunities. 

Despite the win, Head Coach Dave Christensen complained for the second week in a row that the offense is not executing like it should.  Quarterback Brett Smith says that he has similar concerns.

“You know we still had a good day offensively, you know we threw for some yards, we had some great runs, but it’s frustrating because we can do even better,” said Smith.

However, the Wyoming defense had a good day holding Northern Colorado to just seven points and returned two interceptions for touchdowns.
