UW football team wins Arizona Bowl: The 2023 Wyoming Cowboys football team sent coach Craig Bohl off into the sunset in dramatic fashion Saturday in the Arizona Bowl.

Trailing 15-6 to Toledo early in the 4th quarter, the Pokes would get a touchdown with about 8 1/2 minutes left to make the score 15-13.

The defense finally forced the Rockets to punt, and the Maroon and Gold had to start at their own 6-yard line with 4:11 to play.

UW milked the clock and marched 87 yards to the Toledo 7-yard line, converting 1 4th down in the process, and got help from an unnecessary roughness penalty.

John Hoyland would then kick a 24-yard field goal as time expired to give Wyoming a 16-15 victory.

The Cowboys finished the season with a 9-4 record.

Denver Broncos Football: The Denver Broncos won their home finale last Sunday against the Los Angeles Chargers 16-9.

The win evens Denver's record at 8-8 and they are 1 game behind in the race for the final wild card spot in the AFC, however, they can't get it.

Indianapolis, Houston, and Pittsburgh are currently in a three-way tie for that final spot, and the main problem for the Broncos is that Houston and Indy play each other this week, so there's no way to catch them both, and A tie between the Texans and Colts doesn't help either.

Denver concludes the season Sunday in Las Vegas in what will be a battle for 2nd and 3rd place in the AFC West.

Kick-off is scheduled for 2:25 p.m.
