    Wyoming wins a nail-biter

    Wyoming goes into hostile territory and gets the win in dramatic fashion against Utah State 35-31. Thing started well with the defense stopping the initial drive, then the offense put together a touch down drive to go up. USU's Lee then got away from the safety to put his offense in scoring position. Keeton would take it in himself for the tie. Things seem to spiral for the defense as the read option seem to have them second guessing themselves too much. Defensive leaders Reese and Yarbrough put an end to the foolishness. Reese would knock Lee out of game and Yarbrough would do the same to Keeton. With hemorrhaging stopped, the offense got rolling. FB Easton had a memorable game scoring two TDs, one a 46 yard scamper. In fourth quarter, the game really began. USU scored a FG to start to the quarter. Shaun Wick would answer with a TD from 5 yards out, 28-24 WYO. There was 2:50 left in the game. Utah went to their hurry up and put together a great drive that ended with a 14 yd TD with 1:03 left in the game, the score was now 31-28 Utah. Offensive impact players went to work. Herron made great catches and got much needed RAC yards to set up for the tying FG. Coach Chandler wanted to try one more play before conceding OT. Out of the shotgun with 6 seconds left in the game, Smith found TE Lange for the go ahead TD to put the Cowboys up 35-31. Utah would try a Hail-Mary with no luck. "This game had the makings of an upset, but my guys came through when they needed to. What a game!", Coach Chandler said during the press conference.

    Fresno State clinches spot in MWC Championship game with victory over SJSU
    This quite possible was the best defensive showing of the year for the Bulldogs, in the biggest game of the season. The defense was able to hold SJSU to 3 FG's, while forcing 3 INT's (1 returned for a TD) and racking up 6 sacks.
    SJSU defense also showed up for this game allowing just one TD late in thefourth quarter.
    The games changed in the fourth quarter after the Bulldogs intercepted a pass in the endzone. In an attempt to kneel the ball and take the ball at the 20 yard line, CB J. Norton instead dove out of the endzone landing on the 1 yard line. Unfazed by the horrible starting position, FSU Bulldogs QB Derek Carr led his team on a 99 yard drive capped off with a 4 yard scoring pass to WR D. Hardaway, essentially sealing the game for the Bulldogs 20-9.

    Fresno State now has a date in the MWC Championship game in two weeks, most likely a rematch against Wyoming.
