The Cowboys recovered the kick, but Glenn responded by giving the finger to Utah. Wyoming lost the game, 50-0.
``I met with my team on Sunday and apologized to them for the gesture I made toward the Utah bench during the game,'' Glenn said in a statement.
``I also want to apologize to all fans for that action. Football is an emotional game, and I let my emotions get the best of me,'' he said. ``I felt it was appropriate for me to let my team and all fans know that I am truly sorry for that emotional moment.''
Mountain West Conference officials planned to review videotape of the game. According to the conference handbook, obscene gestures or language are subject to at least a reprimand for a first offense.
After the loss Saturday, Glenn said he didn't remember the gesture.
He had publicly guaranteed a win over Utah (7-3, 4-2 Mountain West Conference). Late in the game, the crowd in Salt Lake City began chanting ``guarantee.''
``I got emotional last week and got my big Irish mouth going and made the guarantee,'' Glenn said. I'd probably like to have it back now. I wouldn't do it again. Find the crow, and I'll eat it.''
Wyoming (5-5, 2-4) has lost four of its last five games. The Cowboys must upset conference-leading BYU on Saturday to earn a bowl bid.
