The Eastern Michigan Eagles play host to the Wyoming Cowboys in week four action.
Time will tell, but the Wyoming Cowboys have an improved look to them but it’s too soon to tell. The Cowboys certainly had no problem in a 45-22 rout of visiting UC Davis as a 23.5 point favorite. The Cowboys forced a pair of turnovers and held the Aggies to 256 yards while racking up 472 yards behind a run heavy attack. Pokes quarterback Josh Allen was deadly efficient, completing 11-15 for 198 yards and a trio of touchdowns with CJ Johnson, Jake Maulhardt and Tanner Gentry hauling in scoring receptions. The ground was where the Cowboys went wild with Brian Hill rumbling for 207 yards on 25 carries with three yard and 59 yard scoring bursts.
