LARAMIE, Wyoming (Ticker) -- After its unbeaten streak was snapped last week, 19th-ranked Air Force's confidence was sapped on Saturday.

Casey Bramlet completed 32-of-42 passes for 387 yards and two touchdowns and ran for another score as Wyoming shocked No. 19 Air Force, 34-26, in a Mountain West Conference matchup.

The win broke Wyoming's streak of 17 consecutive conference losses. The Cowboys (2-6, 1-2 MWC) had not won a conference contest since defeating New Mexico on November 20, 1999.

Meanwhile, the Falcons (6-2, 3-1) had their seven-game winning streak snapped last week as Notre Dame defeated Air Force, 21-14, at Falcon Stadium.

Wyoming had a three-point lead with 2 1/2 minutes to go in the third quarter when Bramlet converted on 4th-and-2, running for a nine-yard TD to make it 24-14.

On Wyoming's next drive, Derek Armah's four-yard TD run increased the Cowboys' advantage to 17 points.

Chance Harridge threw for 169 yards and a touchdown and rushed for 91 on 17 carries for Air Force.

Air Force got an early 27-yard field goal from Joey Ashcroft before Bramlet hit receiver Scottie Vines on a 40-yard TD strike to give Wyoming a 7-3 lead with less than three minutes to go in the first quarter.

The teams exchanged second-quarter field goals before Bramlet connected with Malcom Floyd on a 58-yard TD pass with 5:59 to go in the half, giving the Cowboys a 17-6 advantage entering the locker room.

Air Force's Anthony Butler scampered into the end zone on a four-yard TD run and the ensuing two-point conversion just under seven minutes into the third made it 17-14.

Harridge threw an 80-yard TD pass to Anthony Park with 10:42 left in the contest to pull the Falcons within 31-21, but it was not enough to end a four-game conference winning streak.
