FORT COLLINS, Colo. -- Brett Smith threw for two touchdowns to lead Wyoming past mistake-prone Colorado State 22-19 on Saturday.

Josh Doctson caught three passes for 129 yards and two touchdowns for Wyoming (8-4, 5-2 Mountain West) in the 102nd meeting of the Border War. The bowl-eligible Cowboys trail 54-43-5.

The fate of Colorado State coach Steve Fairchild rests in the hands of newly named athletic director Jack Graham. Fairchild has coached the Rams (3-9, 1-6) to three straight 3-9 finishes.

Graham said he had made no decision about Fairchild, with whom he plans to meet Sunday. The Rams ended the season on an eight-game losing streak.

Wyoming's Smith threw for 191 yards and ran for 90 more.

Colorado State's Raymond Carter ran for a career-best 158 yards and two touchdowns. Quarterback Garrett Grayson rushed for 91 yards and was 15-for-25 for 143 yards with three interceptions.
