Wyoming freshman RB Trey Woods is listed as the starter for the Cowboys for their game on Saturday against Texas State.

Woods (6'4/185) is coming off a game in which he ran for 135 yards and a touchdown in a 28-21 overtime victory over Hawaii. Wyoming has been able to get anything done on offense in the passing game, but it appears there's a possible long-term answer at running back in Woods.
Sep 25 - 6:54 PM

Wyoming freshman RB Trey Woods rushed for 135 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries in Saturday's 28-21 overtime win over Hawaii.

The Cowboys have offered QB Josh Allen next-to-no skill-position help this season, but perhaps Woods will be the young man to provide a little additional firepower. The 6-foot-4, 185-pound true freshman opened the game's scoring with his 34-yard touchdown run early in the second quarter and finished out averaging 9.0 YPC with a long-dash of 59 yards. Perhaps the best sign for Woods' prospects moving forward -- no other Wyoming back saw double-digit carries against Hawaii.

Wyoming redshirt junior QB Josh Allen completed just 9-of-19 passes for 98 yards and a touchdown in a 28-21 overtime victory over Hawaii.

Let's be clear: Allen doesn't have great wideouts, and he doesn't have a great offensive line. Those caveats out of the way, it's still safe to say that this isn't a great start to the season for the 6-foot-5, 230-pound quarterback. His touchdown pass was certainly a clutch one, a 25-yard pass on play-action to a wide-open James Price to give the Cowboys a 28-21 lead in the first overtime. There's plenty of time to rebuild his stock -- and GMs are going to give him some slack for playing with less than a full deck. If he's really going to challenge to be the first quarterback taken in a strong class of signal-callers, however, he's going to have to play (much) better than this.

Wyoming junior WR James Price (collarbone) is expected to play in Saturday's game against Hawaii.

Price will be making his season debut against the Rainbow Warriors. A broken collarbone sustained near the end of preseason camp has kept him on the sidelines for the first three games of the campaign.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen spoke to one NFL GM who believes if Wyoming QB Josh Allen played for USC, Clemson or Oklahoma, "they'd all be talking like there hasn't been a better passer in years."

Stunning. The anonymous general manager says his only concern about Allen is possible injury due to being too competitive with a lack of talent around him this season. "Enough teams will work past the garbage you'll hear," the general manager said via Mortensen. The decision maker went on to say there is "no comparison" with his size, arm, skill set, mobility, good mind and competitiveness. It is absolutely amazing that this general manager does not even touch on Allen's ability, or inability, to handle a pass rush, since it is the great differentiator at the position.

Wyoming redshirt junior Josh Allen has droped to QB9 in NFL.com's power rankings.

Allen started the season at No. 3. The list is made up of "five draft experts" rankings, so obviously they have been extremely disappointed in Allen's 2017 campaign. Allen threw three interceptions compared to no touchdowns in two games against Iowa and Oregon this season.

NFL Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline believes that Wyoming redshirt junior QB Josh Allen's draft stock is declining.

"The bottom line is Allen was not good against Iowa and was atrocious against Oregon," Pauline said. "There’s plenty of season left and no reason to stamp final grades on any player at this point but this much is certain- Allen must quickly turn it around." For the season, the 6-foot-5, 233-pound quarterback has completed 56.3 percent of his passes with a 3-2 touchdown-to-interception ratio. He'll look to rebuild that stock starting on Saturday when the Cowboys travel to Hawaii.
Sep 18 - 8:36 PM

Wyoming redshirt junior QB Josh Allen completed 9-of-24 passes for 64 yards and an interception in Saturday's 49-13 loss to Oregon.

With 16 NFL squads sending scouts to Laramie for Saturday's contest, Allen could have used a big performance. Instead he struggled to the extreme. The 6-foot-5, 233-pounder did rush for 25 yards and a score, but that was about the extent of his positive output against the Ducks. In his two games against Power 5 teams this season (Iowa, Oregon), Allen has completed just 32-of-64 passes for 238 yards with a 0/3 TD/INT ratio. He has done nothing to help his draft stock this season and is going to need to start putting things together if he wants to remain in the conversation to be the first quarterback drafted in the spring. He'll try for better times against Hawaii next Saturday.
Sep 16 - 10:56 PM

Wyoming junior WR James Prcie (collarbone) will likely miss Saturday's game against Oregon.

Price has not officially been ruled out for Saturday as of yet, but given that HC Craig Bohl said that the team "hopes" that the 6-foot-2, 200-pounder will be available against Hawaii on September 23, it sounds like this Oregon matchup might be a long-shot. Price is on the mend from a broken left collarbone sustained near the end of August camp.
Sep 15 - 9:13 PM

Twenty-one scouts from 16 NFL teams have been credentialed to attend Saturday's game between Oregon and Wyoming.

The draw, of course, is Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen, who's struggled against Power 5 competition to this point in his career (1/7 TD/INT rate in two games). The Jets and 49ers are among the teams that will take him in on Saturday. NFL.com analyst Daniel Jeremiah has compared Allen (6'5/233) to a more athletic version of Joe Flacco. Oregon QB Justin Herbert and RB Royce Freeman also have NFL scout's interest.

Wyoming junior WR James Price (collarbone) could return early and play in Saturday's game against Oregon.

Price (6'2/200) was expected to miss at least the first four or five weeks of the season, but Head Coach Craig Bohl says that he's made enough progress that he could see his first action of the year on Saturday. He would provide needed depth for star quarterback Josh Allen.
Sep 11 - 5:21 PM

Wyoming sophomore C.J. Johnson caught six passes for 130 yards and a touchdown on Saturday in a 27-0 win over Gardner-Webb.

Johnson (6-2, 204) was able to find plenty of room in the Gardner-Webb secondary, and probably could have had a bigger day if Wyoming had not slowed things down late in the game. His touchdown was a 29-yard pass from Cowboys QB Josh Allen to make it 24-0 with 1:27 left in the third quarter.
Sep 9 - 7:06 PM

Wyoming redshirt sophomore WR Austin Conway hauled in 11 passes for 135 yards and a touchdown in a 27-0 victory over Gardner-Webb on Saturday.

Conway (5'10/172) was Josh Allen's favorite target in their opening contest with Iowa, and that certainly didn't change on Saturday. His touchdown was a 27-yard grab in the second quarter to give Wyoming a 14-0 lead, and he also hauled in a long 37-yard pass. With a talented QB like Allen delivering the football, Conway has a chance to put up big numbers in the 2017 season.
Sep 9 - 7:00 PM

Wyoming redshirt junior QB Josh Allen completed 22-of-32 passes on Saturday for 232 yards and two touchdowns in a 27-0 victory over Gardner-Webb.

Allen (6'5/233) was ineffective last week against Iowa and was battling a shoulder injury, but he was much more effective on Saturday than he was against the Hawkeyes. As he should be, Gardner-Webb is vastly inferior competition. His first touchdown was a 27-yard strike to Austin Conway to make it 14-0 late in the first quarter. He then found C.J. Johnson for a 29-yard touchdown in the middle of the third to make it 24-0 Cowboys. He hasn't played like a potential top pick yet, but he certainly showed improvement in this contest.
Sep 9 - 6:55 PM

Wyoming redshirt junior QB Josh Allen (shoulder) returned to practice on Wednesday.

Allen rested up early in the practice week after injuring his left shoulder in Saturday's loss to Iowa before returning to the field on Wednesday. There are no indications that this is a serious injury and Allen will be starting against Gardner-Webb on Saturday barring a sudden change on the health front.
