San Diego State (5-1, 2-1 MW) took down Wyoming (4-2, 1-1 MW) by a score of 26-22.

The Aztecs are now second in the Mountain West standings.

Both offenses started out slow as SDSU was able to get on the scoreboard first with a 47-yard field goal from freshman kicker Matt Araiza.

Araiza would net another field goal in the second quarter and miss a 38-yard attempt in the fourth quarter.

The second quarter is when the Wyoming was able to capitalize as they trucked up the field.

Freshman quarterback Sean Chambers had two one-yard rushing attempts at the goal line for two touchdowns.

Chambers was the main offensive weapon for the Cowboys as he also added a touchdown pass to senior wide receiver Raghib Ismail Jr. in the third quarter.

After being down 14-6 at halftime, senior running back Juwan Washington finally showed how versatile he is.

Washington caught a 15-yard pass from senior quarterback Ryan Agnew and would punch in a rushing touchdown on the next drive.

The Cowboys had a 22-19 lead going into the final quarter after Ismail’s touchdown reception.

SDSU would answer with only 2:09 left in the game as sophomore tight end Daniel Bellinger caught a 12-yard pass to take the lead.

The Cowboys had enough time to create a drive that would set them up to score the game-winning touchdown.

Luckily for San Diego State, senior cornerback Luq Barcoo would pick off a deep pass from Chambers that would seal the victory for the Aztecs.

SDSU is now behind undefeated Boise State for the top spot in the Mountain West.

The Aztecs will now travel to the Bay Area to take on a surprisingly competitive San Jose State on Saturday, Oct. 19 at 4 p.m.
