Garrett Gilbert passed for 222 yards and a
touchdown and No. 5 Texas shook off another slow start to beat
Wyoming 34-7 Saturday night.
After spending most of the first game against Rice running the
ball, Texas opened up its passing playbook against the Cowboys. The
result was similar: A methodical win with a few big plays sprinkled
for in an offense still trying to find its rhythm.
Gilbert was 22 of 35 with a 45-yard touchdown to freshman
receiver Mike Davis in the second quarter. Fozzy Whittaker scored
on a 39-yard run.
Texas (2-0) held the Cowboys to 257 total yards.
Wyoming (1-1) played just six days after the death of freshman
linebacker Ruben Narcisse, who was killed in a car accident in
Colorado on Monday. The Cowboys wore decals with his initials and
safety Shamiel Gary wore Narcisse's No. 12 to honor him Saturday
