LAS VEGAS, NEVADA (AP) — Lee Williams had three short touchdown runs, Trey Smith rushed for a career-high 164 yards with a touchdown and Wyoming rolled up 399 yards on the ground to breeze past winless UNLV 45-14.
Xazavian Valladay kicked off the Cowboys rushing attack on the second play of the game, bursting through a gap up the middle going 78 yards untouched to score.
Smith broke off the biggest game of his five-season career at Wyoming, surpassing 100 yards early in the third quarter and squeezing past a would-be tackler to score from the 28.
