Rebels Roped On The Road

LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Brett Smith passed for two touchdowns and caught a pass for another to lead Wyoming past UNLV 41-14 on Saturday.

The victory, in the Mountain West Conference opener for both teams, snapped a two-game losing streak for Wyoming (4-2, 1-0). It was Wyoming’s fourth consecutive home-game victory against the Rebels.

Smith completed 10 of 19 passes for 96 yards and rushed 10 times for 59 yards.

Chris McNeill added a 76-yard score on a punt return, making up for a fumbled punt earlier in the game.

The loss was the third straight for the Rebels (1-5, 0-1) and their 13th consecutive loss on the road. Seeking to jumpstart an offense that was averaging 137 passing yards a game, UNLV started a new quarterback, Sean Reilly, who threw for just 79 yards.

Dionza Bradford led the Rebels with 104 yards on 22 rushes, and Tim Cornett scored two rushing TDs.

UNLV has a bye next week before returning home to play Colorado State on Oct. 29th
