It will be a complete 180 for the Wyoming defense from last Saturday. Trying to defend Air Force is completely different from what they will attempt to try and stop this weekend, when the Cowboys host Fresno State. The Bulldogs have a high-powered passing attack led by quarterback Jake Haener, who has thrown for over 22-hundred yards, 18 touchdowns and six interceptions. He’s also completing nearly 70-percent of his passes. But, Haener has shown that he will give the ball up to the other team, evident from the Bulldogs game at Hawaii, in which they turned the ball over five times–three of them in the red zone. Wyoming cornerback C.J. Coldon says they’re going to have to give Haener different looks.

“Try to show him different pictures at every snap, and just go out there and play ball. Nothing more, nothing less,” said Coldon. “It’s another opponent to face, and another W we want to get.”
