LARAMIE, Wyo. — University of New Mexico coach Bob Davie said inserting Tevaka Tuioti at quarterback was always part of the plan against Wyoming on Saturday. It was just a matter of when, he said.
It might have been too late. Tuioti provided a spark with a late touchdown, but the Cowboys came away with a 23-10 Mountain West Conference win in front of announced crowd of 22,884 at War Memorial Stadium.
The Lobos (2-5, 0-3 in MWC) suffered their fourth straight loss, while Wyoming (5-2, 2-1) ran for 259 yards with running back Xazavian Valladay (127 yards, 1 TD, 33 carries) and quarterback Sean Chambers (117 yards, 1 TD, 18 carries) leading the way.
