Iowa stifles Wyoming offense in season opener

Wyoming Cowboys freshman punter Tim Zaleski had a rough start to his college career Saturday when his team faced off with the Iowa Hawkeyes.

The Cowboys - who also feature top QB prospect Josh Allen - were trailing the Hawkeyes 7-3 in the second quarter when Zaleski couldn't put foot to ball.

The Hawkeyes capitalized quickly when quarterback Nathan Stanley threw a 27-yard touchdown pass to Noah Fant on the first play of the resulting possession. He probably took some of the pressure off the rest of his team, most notably potential first round quarterback Josh Allen, because the whole team was underwhelming in their 24-3 loss. According to ESPN's Michele Steele, seven teams have made the trek in order to get a look at Allen in action. Sophomore Milo Hall recorded his first-career carry in the first quarter and finished the game with 30 yards on nine carries.


The Pokes defense was aggressive in the opening quarter recording two turnovers in the frame. It was his first game without a touchdown, either passing or rushing, since Wyoming's loss at Eastern Michigan a year ago. Maybe Zaleski's Cowboys teammates can pick him up a bit in the second half. The redshirt junior Texas native played his best game in the black & gold.

Jewell alone produced 14 total tackles, 2 sacks, and had his mitts on an interception, but couldn't come home with it. But he bobbled the ball and didn't land in bounds once he controlled it. UW missed a field goal two plays later. Rico Gafford came up big with a one handed interception. On the following play, Allen almost connected with Johnson on a deep pass in the endzone, but Johnson was just out of bounds after the play was reviewed. Iowa lead 14-3 at the half.
