UTAH AND WYOMING, undefeated in Skyline Conference play, set the stage for their "big one" at Laramie this Saturday by their victories last week.
Utah, the September choice for Skyline honors, beat Denver 27-13 at Salt Lake on superior speed and power.
Coach Phil Dickens of Wyoming nearly realized his worst fear—losing to perennial jinx New Mexico—as his fiat and careless Wyoming eleven staggered to a 20-13 win over the Lobos. The twin wins set the stage for the coming conference title battle.
Utah State put across two fourth-period touchdowns to send Montana State to a 27-13 Skyline setback. Until then, Montana State partisans saw the two teams match touchdown for touchdown to a 13-13 tie after three periods.
Coach Buck Shaw's precisionlike Air Force Academy ground out its third straight victory by humbling Western state 48-13 at Denver. The Falcons, who have averaged 49 points per game, were in great form as they rolled up 485 yards and 27 first downs. Other scores:
Omaha 9, Idaho State 0
