My initial guess here was that Wyoming fell asleep, got "exposed," or whatever. But I think it bears mentioning that while Wyoming fell eight spots in the F/+ rankings after this one (from 69th to 77th), Texas State surged from 106th to 72nd. The TXST offense was consistently good, and the defense started each half on fire. Dennis Franchione's Bobcats are a pretty good looking squad.
