UNLV drops to 0-5 in the 2020 season after another unfortunate loss, this time to the hands of the Wyoming Cowboys,  45-14. 


After an unexpected bye last week due to coronavirus protocols, UNLV skipped over playing Colorado State and started preparing for Wyoming. The Rebels looked slightly rusty from the start, as on the second play of the game Cowboy’s running back Xazavain Valladay rushed for a 78-yard touchdown; untouched to start the ball game.  From that moment on a stampede of points bum rushed the Rebels.  


It was 17-0 Cowboys until the Rebels found their first points of the game coming from quarterback Max Gillum, who scrambled for a two-yard touchdown in the second quarter. Gillum was his usual fighter self, having multiple rushes that nearly matched his passing total. To date, Gillum had 65 yards passing with an interception and 63 yards rushing off of his 12 carries. Unfortunately his efforts were not enough to lead the Rebels back to a victory.


Unsure of a lingering injury, Gillum was replaced a few times in this game. He did not finish this one out so true freshman Doug Brumfield came in and finished his day going 4/8 and 93 yards passing.  Heading into a Friday night’s matchup against a very dominant Boise State Broncos, the Rebels may have to shuffle the deck in search of a starter once again. 


As for Wyoming, a disappointing season by their standards found them riding high back to Laramie; after rushing for 399 yards, as a winning team to put them at 2-2 this season.
