When Wyoming hosted Nebraska two years ago in Laramie, Huskers coach Bo Pelini came away impressed with then, true freshman quarterback Brett Smith. That year, Smith went on to break Mountain West freshman records for passing yards and total offense. Smith had an even better year last season, despite missing all or parts of four games. Now, as the Cowboys get ready to travel to Lincoln to face the 18th ranked Huskers, Pelini is even more impressed with the way Smith plays the game.
Wyoming is at Nebraska Saturday evening in Lincoln. Kickoff is set for 6 pm mountain time at Memorial Stadium.
