BYU Gets Trounced By Wyoming
Salt Lake Tribune 14Nov99 S3
By Michael C. Lewis: Salt Lake Tribune

LARAMIE, WYOMING -- BYU remains just one win away from clinching the first Mountain West Conference title in football, after loosing 31-17 to Wyoming in what can only be called a disaster. BYU's team simply was unable to hang on to the ball at key points in the game. The Cougars lost one of four fumbles at the Wyoming 1-yard line, threw an interception at the 8-yard line and failed to connect on a touchdown pass in the endzone.

In spite of the problems, quarterback Kevin Feterik threw for more yardage and completed more passes than the Cowboy's Jay Stoner, and reached 5th place on BYU's all-time quarterback yardage list, passing both Steve Young and Marc Wilson. Still, the offense managed almost no yards rushing and the defense couldn't keep the Cowboy's from scoring.

In the AP poll, BYU dropped to 19th place, sinking any hope of going to a more prestigious bowl than the Liberty Bowl that the Mountain West Conference champion is automatically invited to attend. And a loss to arch-rival Utah next Saturday would even place that bid in jeopardy.
