Gerald Abraham (1984-87) holds both records. Here are "Ryno's" season and career statistics to date, as compared to Abraham's (Abraham set the single-season mark in 1987). SEASON Chrtetopherson Abraham Christopherson Abraham rzmn 1,305 , Career 2,276 POKES: Dombek forced to leave after hard hit by Nebraska's Troy Dumas Continued from Dl Wyoming coach Joe Tiller said. "The turnovers really hurt us. "We matched them on the turnovers in the first half. When we turned it over, they scored, and when they turned it over, we scored. "In the second half, we weren't able to match them on the turnovers." Redshirt freshman quarterback Jeremy Dombek accomplished what the UW coaches wanted him to in his first start for the Cowboys: Move the offense. But despite completing 17 of 35 passes for 264 yards and two touchdowns, Dombek allowed three interceptions that turned into 21 Nebraska points. He was forced to leave the game with 13:17 remaining after sustaining a minor head injury on a sack by NU strongside linebacker Troy Dumas, who graduated from Cheyenne East High School. The force of Dumas' hit bent Dombek's facemask upward. "I don't remember the hit," said Dombek, who is expected to return against Northeast Louisiana. "But I got to see it on the replay. They said I was out cold." Senior John Gustin, who started the first four games, replaced Dombek. Earlier, Dombek's second interception allowed Nebraska to GULLBERG Continued from Dl won or tied the game in those final few minutes, we'll never know. But we do know that this "moral victory" brought a struggling football team closer together. Amazingly, this is a positive group of young men just one week after falling to 1-1 in the Western Athletic Conference because of an embarrassing 41-7 loss at Utah. "1 firmly believed we could play with these guys," Holanda said. "The key to the game was how many turnovers could our 'In the second half, we weren't able to match them on the turnovers.' JOE TILLER, WYOMING HEAD COACH tie the score 21-all at 12:05 in the third quarter and avoid falling behind by two touchdowns. UW had taken the second-half kickoff and marched to the Corn-huskers' 38 prior to the interception. NU took the lead for good following another pickoff on UW's ensuing series. Cornerback Barron Miles stole Dombek's pass and returned it to the Cowboys' 40-yard-line. Phillips broke loose for a 40-yard touchdown run on the Corn-huskers' next play. UW's offense then went three-and-out, allowing NU to build a 35-21 cushion with a nine-play, 43-yard drive capped by Berringer's 10-yard scoring run at 8:11 in the third. Berringer finished with 74 yards on 12 carries and three rushing touchdowns. He completed 15 of 22 passes for 131 yards. Phillips, the nation's third-leading rusher entering Satur- defense force so we could give our offense the ball. "We have a young offense, so we know they're going to give up turnovers. We just have to create more. "Jeremy showed he could play today. He stepped up and threw the ball and took some hits. He's not a freshman anymore." And the Pokes aren't as bad as a 2-3 record sounds. They have the confidence, grit, guts, determination, talent and heart it takes to win a WAC title. But, about those turnovers ...

This Is absolutely not true. The Wyoming Sportsman's Association Is registered with the Secretary of State as a non-profit organization. The directors receive no compensation other than reimbursement for actual expenses. The association finds It disturbing that a member of the legislature seeking re-election would make such uninformed and unsubstantiated remarks. It was evident to the directors of the Wyoming Sportsman's Association that the remarks were an intentional act to discredit this association to it's members, prospective members, and public at large. The comments were meant to intimidate the directors and detract from the discussion being held to obtain access to a large block of public lands. The access being blocked by Mr. Schiffer and associates for a portion of the antelope season and all of deer season unless a SI 25 access fee is paid. The Wyoming Sportsman's Association is a non-profit mutual benefit corporation, incorporated for the mutual benefit of hunters, fishermen, and outdoor recreationists on a statewide basis.

Paid for by The Wyoming Sportsman's Association day, carried 27 times for 168 yards and three touchdowns. He has amassed 100 yards in all five games this season and now has 785 total rushing yards. While UW's passing attack flourished for the first time this season, Cowboys fullback Kyan Christopherson struggled for the first time. "Ryno," the nation's fifth-leading rusher at 152 yards per game, was held to zero yardage on 12 attempts Saturday. But Tiller didn't seem too concerned. "We ran just enough to make them think we might run it," Tiller said. "We felt like we had toHun the ball a little bit to set up the play-action pass." After falling two touchdowns behind, the resilient Pokes rallied and cut the deficit to 35-24 on Taylor Sorenson's 40-yard field goal with 31 seconds left in the third. UW's defense was equally responsive and forced NU to punt from its own 42 with 14:01 left in the game. The Pokes took over from their own 14 and closed the gap to 35-32, but with Gustin at the helm. Dombek left the game on the second play of that series following the hit by Dumas. Gustin threw incomplete on his first attempt, but scrambled for three yards and a first down on his second play of the guml After that, UW's offense clicked. Gustin was six of nine on tin-drive, culminating with a two,, yard scoring pass to tight eiiil, Jeremy Gilstrap with 9:(W to ! played. ' Gustin and Gilstrap hooked up again on the 2-point conversion, and it was a three-point ballgiimi;.. The Cornhuskers drove from their own 20 to their 48 befon'v being forced to punt at the 5;4J. mark. It was then when Jackson funr bled the ball away at the I W H." "I thought the 80-yard driv drive with our number two iiiaj,-! terback in the game was reallyji, lift for our football team," Tillw said. "On the sideline, our guV were thinking we've got a chain, v if we can get a shutdown here. "Of course, we did, and then; we had the mishandled punt, aiul I think that's what drove the iiai) home." ,,,, NOTES: UW led 14-0 after thsj first quarter, 21-7 in the second quarter, and 21-14 at halftime. It was th first time NU trailed all season. ... KU led the nation in rushing at 471.5 yars, per game, but was held to 322 by UW. ... NU extended the nation's longest sellout streak to 198. ...
