Wyoming Punter Whiffs the Ball on Punt Attempt

Given excellent field position with the botched punt, Iowa took the generous gift and scored a touchdown two plays later on a 27-yard pass from Nate Stanley to Noah Fant.

The Iowa football team got to hear all about how good Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen is for months.

Allen got to hear all about how good he is, too. Sophomore Milo Hall recorded his first-career carry in the first quarter and finished the game with 30 yards on nine carries.

The Cowboys had little to no shot to win this game, although their defense gave them a chance by forcing four turnovers.


It was the team's first game without a touchdown since losing to San Diego State in 2015.

Wyoming, which averaged 436.1 total yards per game in 2016, could only put together 233 against a powerful Iowa defense. But all the offense could make of them was three points.

Allen, a junior quarterback who has National Football League scouts drooling (12 scouts from seven different teams were at Saturday's game), was quite pedestrian. It was his first game without a touchdown, either passing or rushing, since Wyoming's loss at Eastern Michigan past year.

On the punt, true freshman Tim Zaleski lost control of the ball during his release. "They'll be probably the best defense we see all year". But he bobbled the ball and didn't land in bounds once he controlled it. UW missed a field goal two plays later. Maybe that was expected as they played against what likely was the best defensive front seven they will face this season. Senior Rico Gafford, an Iowa native recorded a pick on a tipped pass on the Hawkeyes' second possession. Wyoming took over with 50 seconds left in the half, but its drive was killed by a blatant intentional grounding on Allen's part.
