Wyoming redshirt sophomore QB Josh Allen completed 17-of-32 passes for 207 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in Wednesday's 24-21 loss to BYU in the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl.
A rather disappointing outing on the whole for Allen. The Cowboys managed just one touchdown drive through the first three quarters before they made a late run at the Cougars via a pair of Allen touchdown tosses to leading wideout Tanner Gentry. Too little, too late, though. The 6-foot-5, 220-pounder has seduced the draft community at times this season, with an AFC executive recently saying that Allen is a "big ol' kid with a big arm," a big ol' kid who is "pretty athletic, too." He could potentially jump for the draft, now, though it might do him well to stay in that Wyoming oven for another season of development. After opening the 2016 campaign with a sparkling 7-2 record (including wins over bowl-bound squads Eastern Michigan, Air Force and Boise State), the Cowboys struggled down the stretch, finishing the season (including bowl action) with losses in four of their last five games.
