LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) - The Wyoming defense dominated the field today (Saturday) in Laramie as the Cowboys opened their season with a 23-3 win over Virginia.
Devin Moore rushed for 125 yards and a touchdown, and had another 47 yards receiving for the Cowboys.

Moore scored on a 49-yard touchdown run midway through the fourth quarter to put Wyoming ahead 20-3.
Three plays later, Julius Stinson intercepted Virginia's Jameel Sewell for the second time in the game. That set up a drive that allowed Billy Vinnedge to kick a 39-yard field goal for the final score.
Hoost Marsh led Wyoming with 73 yards receiving, including a 48-yard pass from Karsten Sween late in the first quarter. Sween completed 25 of 34 passes for 253 yards.
