Saturday’s victory over Texas State was the Wyoming Cowboys best performance of the season through five games.

UW utilized all three phases of the game and got big contributions from several different Cowboys in a 45-10 win.

First was a major bounce back game for sophomore receiver C.J. Johnson, who had four catches for 57 yards and two touchdowns.
