Junior Shaun Wick rushed for 134 yards and redshirt sophomore D.J. May added 96 on the ground to guide the University of Wyoming football team to a season-opening 17-12 victory over Montana on Saturday afternoon in War Memorial Stadium. The Cowboys also rolled out an improved defense, holding the Griz to just 42 yards on the ground, the lowest total for a UW opponent since 2008.

“We knew coming into this game with Montana, with the type of program they have, that it wasn’t going to be an easy game,” UW head coach Craig Bohl said. “There was a lot of adversity to deal with. I personally have never been through that many rain delays, which apparently is common practice around here.”

According to a news release, Wick’s night came on 22 carries to average 6.1 yards per carry, while May ran 13 times for a 7.4 average. Both posted one touchdown run. Redshirt senior quarterback Colby Kirkegaard made his first start since 2012 and finished 13-of-21 for 92 yards. Senior Dominic Rufran collected four catches for 25 yards.

Wyoming continues its season by hosting Air Force next Saturday at 8:15 p.m. MT in War Memorial Stadium.
