Wyoming rolls over Georgia State 38-17 in Arizona Bowl

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Wyoming wanted to make the most of its bowl game after being passed over in the postseason last year. Giving a freshman quarterback his first career start didn’t seem like the best approach to accomplishing that goal.

Levi Williams handled it just fine and the Cowboys are riding off from the 2019 season with a bowl victory.

Williams accounted for four scores, Xazavian Valladay ran for 204 yards and scored two touchdowns, and Wyoming rolled over Georgia State 38-17 in the Arizona Bowl on Saturday.

“He was composed, made a lot of big plays,” Wyoming coach Craig Bohl said. “He had a couple things we wish he could have had back, but for a freshman, for any quarterback, he played with a lot of poise and composure.”

The Cowboys won six games to become bowl eligible in 2018, yet found themselves at home watching TV after they weren’t among the 78 teams to get bowl invites.

Once at the 2019 Arizona Bowl, the Cowboys turned to Williams over Tyler Vander Waal, who entered the transfer portal but remained with the team for bowl practices. Williams did not shy away from the spotlight, hurting the Panthers with his arm and legs.

He threw for 234 yards and three touchdowns, with 53 yards and a score on the ground for the Cowboys (8-5), who racked up 524 yards to end the season on a high note.
