Wyoming Cowboys Concludes Season With Exciting 35-28 Win Over UNLV

Laramie, Wyo. (Nov. 28, 2015) -- The Wyoming Cowboys captured an exciting 35-28 home win over UNLV on Saturday in their 2015 season finale at War Memorial Stadium. The Cowboys generated a season-high 538 yards of total offense on way to the victory. UW was led by sophomore running back Brian Hill, who rushed for 232 yards on way to setting a new school single-season record of 1,631 rushing yards. Hill ended the day with his fifth career 200-yard rushing game and his 11th 100-yard game in two seasons. He was joined on offense by senior quarterback Cameron Coffman, who completed 14 of 24 passes (58.3 percent) for 248 yards, three touchdowns and one interception. Coffman’s favorite target was junior tight end Jacob Hollister. Hollister caught five passes for 119 yards, including a 64-yard TD reception with 2:20 remaining in the game that proved to be the game winner. For Hollister, it was the first 100-yard receiving game of his career. Wyoming’s defense did their part in the win. Senior defensive end Eddie Yarbrough concluded his outstanding college career with seven tackles, 2.0 sacks, 2.0 tackles for loss and a forced fumble. “It was a hard-fought game and I couldn’t be more pleased, especially for our seniors,” said head coach Craig Bohl. “We are excited about what kind of message it’s sends for next year. We are going to enjoy this win. It was a good win at home and we are pleased with that. #county10 #news #sports *Feature Photo: Wyoming Sophomore running back Brian Hill now holds the Pokes' All-time Single Season Rushing record with 1,631 yards after rushing for 232 yards against UNLV.
