What to Know
The Wyoming Cowboys will take on the Northern Illinois Huskies at 1:30 p.m. ET on Saturday at Brigham Field at Huskie Stadium. These two teams are tiptoeing into their contest after sneaking past their previous opponents.
The Cowboys came out on top in a nail-biter against the Montana State Bobcats last week, sneaking past 19-16. The overall outcome was to be expected, but Montana State made it more of a matchup than the oddsmakers had predicted. No one had a standout game offensively for Wyoming, but they got scores from RB Xazavian Valladay and TE Treyton Welch. Wyoming’s win came on a 21-yard TD pass from QB Sean Chambers to Welch with only 0:51 remaining in the fourth quarter.
NIU can thank their lucky stars for their victory over the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets last week. The final score was a hard-fought 22-21. RB Harrison Waylee was the offensive standout of the game for NIU, rushing for one TD and 144 yards on 27 carries.
Their wins lifted both teams to an identical 1-0. Watch the game and check back on CBS Sports to find out who keeps up the positive energy and who hits a stumbling block.
