Wyoming dominates Idaho 42-10

LARAMIE, Wyo. -- Brett Smith threw for four touchdowns and Shaun Wick rushed for 110 yards as Wyoming beat Idaho 42-10 Saturday in a game that included a half-hour lightning delay.

Smith set a school record by netting 72 passing and rushing TDs in his career. Just a junior, Smith surpassed the previous record of 70 set by quarterback Casey Bramlet from 2000-03. He is one TD pass from tying Bramlet for the school record for touchdown passes.

Smith completed 22 of 38 passes for 295 yards for Wyoming (1-1). Three of his TD passes went to Dominic Rufran, who scored on passes of 1, 6 and 40 yards -- all in the third quarter. Robert Herron caught five passes for 123 yards.

Smith also rushed for 64 yards.

Wyoming gained 564 yards total offense and converted 11 of 18 third downs.

Wick became the first Wyoming player to rush for 100 yards in consecutive games since 2008. He rushed for 101 against Nebraska the previous week.

Chad Chalich led the Vandals (0-2), completing 22 of 32 passes for 182 yards. Josh McCain rotated in at quarterback and led the Vandals with 49 rushing yards.

The Cowboys defense limited Idaho to 5 of 20 on third down conversions and collected seven sacks for 61 lost yards.

Eddie Yarbrough had three sacks, and Sonny Puletasi two for Wyoming. Yarbrough also recorded nine tackles.

The Vandals got within the red zone only twice during the game.

Idaho's lone TD came with 18 seconds left in the game when James Baker scored on a 1-yard run. Austin Rehkow converted a 41-yard field goal earlier in the fourth quarter.

The game was delayed for 33 minutes in the second quarter because of lightning. Wyoming was leading the Vandals 14-0 when scattered storms moved into the area of War Memorial Stadium, which is the highest FBS stadium in the nation at 7,220 feet altitude.
