Levi Williams threw for two touchdowns, Titus Swen led Wyoming’s crushing rushing attack with 166 yards and the Cowboys beat Colorado State 31-17 on Saturday to snap a four-game losing streak.
Williams only had 92 yards passing but threw a pair of second-half touchdowns, including a 15-yarder to Isaiah Neyor that gave the Cowboys a 30-10 lead midway through the fourth quarter and sent them on their way to their first Mountain West Conference win this season.
Williams added 116 yards on the ground including a 43-yard touchdown and Xazavian Valladay scored a touchdown and ran for 76 yards for 2,971 in his career to move into second place all-time at Wyoming. The Cowboys had 385 yards on the ground and outgained the Rams 477-357 in total yards.
Todd Centeio threw two touchdown passes to Dante Wright for the Rams (3-6, 2-3) but was also intercepted twice.
Wyoming’s win came in the 113th Border War, a series that dates to 1899, both schools’ longest rivalry.
