The 2012 season for the Wyoming Cowboys is on the brink of turning into a disaster as they are 0-3, and this week they travel to the Idaho Vandals to try to get their first win of the season. However, they could be without some top play makers on Saturday.

Quarterback Brett Smith who was knocked out two weeks ago against Toledo, and missed last Saturday's loss to Cal Poly. Even though Smith has practiced again this week, he is still doubtful for the Idaho game. This means that Colby Kirkegaard will get the start again, but he must improve off of his 15-of-23, 123 yard performance last Saturday.

However, Kirkegaard could be out with his top offensive threat in wide receiver Robert Herron who is doubtful with a shin injury. Herron has missed the last two games with injury, and his performance against Texas was very good were he caught five catches for 175 yards and two touchdowns. Having Herron out is a reason why the Cowboys have lost their last two games.

Wyoming also is out one of their main running backs in Brandon Miller is more than likely out with an undisclosed injury. For a team that struggles to run the ball this is a big blow, so the running attack will be led by starter D.J. May, Shaun Wick and Kody Sutton, who could see some carries against Idaho.

Even though Idaho is also 0-3 this year, Wyoming can not take the Vandals lightly and need to step up their game if the Cowboys want to get their first win of the year.
