Utah 50, Wyoming 0

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Darrell Mack ran for 97 yards and two touchdowns and Utah held Wyoming to 122 yards of offense in the Utes' 50-0 shutout of the Cowboys on Saturday.

Louie Sakoda kicked three field goals, which was all the scoring the Utes (7-3, 4-2) needed in their sixth straight win and first Mountain West Conference shutout since beating rival Brigham Young 3-0 in 2003.

The Utes forced five turnovers and had six sacks against the struggling Cowboys (5-5, 2-4), who blew a 21-0 lead in a 27-24 loss to San Diego State the week before. Wyoming has lost four of five.

Gabe Long had three sacks for the Utes, including one that forced Karsten Sween to fumble at the Wyoming 31-yard line. Brian Johnson completed the short drive for Utah with a 9-yard touchdown pass to Bradon Godfrey that put the Utes up 40-0 at halftime.

Receiver Jereme Brooks ran for two touchdowns, scoring on a 16-yard reverse as the Utes' kept the Cowboys off guard with an array of trick plays.

Sakoda, who kicked field goals of 32, 26 and 41 yards, completed a pass to defensive lineman Neli A'asa for 41 yards on a fake punt. The play helped set up Mack's second 1-yard touchdown run of the game, which put Utah ahead 33-0 in the second quarter.

Wynel Selden had 40 yards on eight carries for the Cowboys. Sween was just 8-for-23 for 41 yards.

Wyoming had not been shut out since a 31-0 loss to Texas A&M in 2004.
