Behind the numbers: Wyoming vs. Fresno State
LARAMIE -- Wyoming's defense played lights out Saturday in front of 20,000-plus inside War Memorial Stadium.
The offense, not so much.
The Cowboys fell to the visiting Fresno State Bulldogs, 17-0, dropping their second straight game in Mountain West play.
Can you guess the last time Wyoming was blanked at home?
You'll have to read that below.
Here are some numbers from today's forgettable offensive outing from the home team:
That's how many points Wyoming has scored over the last six quarters, dating back to the second half of last week's loss at Air Force. The Cowboys were also shutout in the first quarter of that tilt in Colorado Springs.
That's how many turnovers the home team had in this one. Sean Chambers tossed three picks and lost a fumble on the second play from scrimmage. Levi Williams threw an interception late in the fourth.
That's how many times Fresno State allowed the Cowboys to get into the red zone in this one. That came on UW's last offensive series of the day. It ended with that Williams pick.
That's the last year the Cowboys were shutout at home. That came at the hands of the visiting BYU Cougars, who handed the Pokes an embarrassing 52-0 loss inside War Memorial Stadium.
That was the last time UW was blanked in any outing. TCU took care of business in Fort Worth, hammering the Cowboys, 45-0.
That's how many passing yards the Wyoming defense allowed to Fresno State QB Jake Haener, the third-leading passer in college football. The Washington transfer was averaging 372 per outing before today.
UW held the Bulldogs high-flying offense to that many yards. They averaged 519 per game before today.
That's now the Cowboys' all-time record against the Bulldogs. Fresno State has won three straight in the series. UW has only beaten the 'Dogs one out of six games since FSU joined the Mountain West.
That how many completions UW quarterbacks had on 30 pass attempts. Chambers was responsible for eight of those. Williams went 1-for-7.
Xazavian Valladay keeps creeping up the all-time rushing list. He passed Wynel Seldon today to move into fourth place in school history. Ryan Christopherson is now in Valladay's sights.
That's how many punts Ralph Fawaz placed inside the Bulldog's 20-yard line on five attempts Saturday.
Esaias Gandy and Chad Muma both finished with this many tackles against Fresno State.
That's how many sacks the Pokes registered against Haener. Credit that one to Solomon Byrd.
That's how many tackles for loss Fresno State racked up. They had 50 as a team coming into Laramie. That's good enough for No. 3 in the nation.
That's how many interceptions Evan Williams snagged inside War Memorial Stadium in Saturday's win over the Pokes. He also led the team with seven tackles.
