Raghib Ismail Jr.'s late TD lifts Wyoming over Wofford 17-14
LARAMIE, Wyo. — Raghib Ismail Jr.'s 9-yard touchdown catch from Tyler Vander Waal with 17 seconds left capped a frantic 80-yard drive and lifted Wyoming over Wofford 17-14 on Saturday.
Wyoming (2-2) struggled on offense until Vander Waal caught fire in the fourth quarter, passing for 164 of his 224 yards.
Wofford (2-1) appeared to have secured a rare win against an FBS opponent when linebacker Robbie Armstrong hit Vander Vaal as he threw, allowing Weston Rountree to intercept with 3:25 to play.
But the Terriers gained only one first down and punted, setting up the Cowboys' game-winning drive with 1:59 remaining. On the winning play, Ismail sliced right to left across the middle, taking Vander Waal's toss at the 5, eluding a tackle by Rountree and diving into the front left corner of the end zone.
Andrew Wingard led Wyoming's defense with a game-high 12 tackles plus an interception, his first of the season and ninth of his career.
