Cowboys Rally Past App State

LARAMIE, Wyo. — App State cornerback Tyrek Funderburk's 17-yard interception return following four first-half field goals from Michael Hughes extended App State's fourth-quarter lead to a two-score margin, but Wyoming returned a blocked field goal for a go-ahead touchdown with 1:52 left and intercepted a pass at the Cowboys' 6-yard line with 12 seconds left to seal a 22-19 win Saturday night.

Funderburk's defensive touchdown gave the Mountaineers (2-2) a 19-7 lead in their nonconference finale. After a Mitchell Lake punt pinned Wyoming at its 5 early in the fourth quarter, a bobbled swing pass that was knocked forward into the air by the back ended up in the hands of Funderburk, who raced untouched to the end zone.
