Iowa stifles Cowboys run game, Wyoming drops season opener

Wyoming vs. Nebraska Football

On the first play, Allen was sacked and called for intentional grounding.

Given the preseason expectations, it should come as no surprise that multiple National Football League teams have sent scouts to Iowa City to watch Allen and the Cowboys open their 2017 season against Iowa.

"That's a good defense", Allen said.

Later in the first quarter, Cowboys forced a fumble and they recovered it. It was held without a touchdown for the first time since late in the 2015 season - a span of 16 games. Sophomore Milo Hall recorded his first-career carry in the first quarter and finished the game with 30 yards on nine carries. Allen's production in 2016 earned him a spot in the Manning Passing Academy as a college counselor, and he was also selected to participate in an NCAA-approved program for underclassmen at the NFL Combine. It was his first game without a touchdown, either passing or rushing, since Wyoming's loss at Eastern Michigan a year ago. It should be noted that in two weeks, the Cowboys will host OR in Laramie. Iowa went on to win the game 24-3. Given excellent field position with the botched punt, Iowa took the generous gift and scored a touchdown two plays later on a 27-yard pass from Nate Stanley to Noah Fant. Then, following Zaleski's mistake, Fant caught his second touchdown pass of the day. "They were playing the flat route, kind of our quick game, pretty well". Saturday, Wyoming's defense kept the Cowboys in the game while the offense kept them grounded. Senior Ryan Cummings moved from right tackle to left guard. Rico Gafford came up big with a one handed interception.

One thing is certain: there is a different feel to this UW offense. "But we came here to win".
