Wyoming holds on for 24-19 upset over No. 24 Fresno St.

Cole Godbout’s tipped-ball interception with 46 seconds left Saturday night quashed Fresno State’s last-ditch comeback as Wyoming upset the No. 24 Bulldogs 24-19 in Laramie, Wyo.

Godbout, a defensive lineman, tipped Logan Fife’s pass at the line of scrimmage and returned it 23 yards to the Fresno State 25. Two kneel-downs later, the Cowboys (5-1, 2-0 Mountain West Conference) had snapped Fresno State’s 14-game winning streak, the second-longest streak in FBS prior to game time, dating to last year.

Andrew Peasley completed 19 of 27 passes for 183 yards and three second-quarter touchdowns for Wyoming, which also got 83 yards on 22 rushes from Harrison Waylee.

Mikey Keene threw for 218 yards and completed 23 of 35 attempts for the Bulldogs (5-1, 1-1) before leaving with a leg injury in the fourth quarter. Fife was 7 of 11 for 68 yards, including a scrambling 8-yard touchdown pass to Mac Dalena with 5:17 left in the game that got Fresno State within one score.

Though Fresno State entered with the high-powered offense, it was Wyoming that executed flawlessly when it had the ball in the first half. The Cowboys held the ball for more than seven minutes on their first drive, getting a 34-yard field goal from John Hoyland.

They started scoring touchdowns after that, beginning with Peasley’s 14-yard strike to Wyatt Wieland on the first play of the second quarter. The Bulldogs responded with Keene’s 6-yard touchdown pass to Jalen Moss at the 11:17 mark that got them within 10-7.

But the half’s remainder was all Wyoming.

Peasley and Wieland hooked up again for a 4-yard scoring strike to cap a 75-yard drive with 6:42 remaining. That was followed by an 88-yard march that ended with Peasley finding Treyton Welch with a 12-yard touchdown pass with 31 seconds left for a 24-7 lead at the break.

And the first-half stats made it look even more one-sided. The Cowboys owned a 249-107 advantage in total yardage, plus a 22-4 advantage in first downs.
