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 Mountain View Buffalos look to rebound after a tough loss to their rivals, the Lyman Eagles. Mountain View will travel to Thermopolis to take on the two time defending 2A champion Bobcats.
This game has major playoff implications as the loser will not be headed to the post-season. If Mountain View wins, they will still need a win over Kemmerer in the final week of the season to make the trip to November football.
