  University of Wyoming redshirt junior offensive lineman Patrick Arnold, who started 10 games for the Cowboys over two seasons, has opted to retire from football and instead pursue his master's degree in physiology, he announced on Twitter on Saturday afternoon. Arnold, an Omaha, Nebraska, native, started six games in 2019, four at left guard and two at right guard. He started four games in 2018 after redshirting his first season on campus in 2017.

  05/14/20 - Alijah HalliburtonSr/2020, Wyoming, 6-0, 197 (DS#11 SS) + More +

  Though he's been surrounded by family and friends in Colorado, Alijah Halliburton has admittedly spent the better part of the past three weeks stuck inside the depths of his own head. Halliburton, the University of Wyoming's first team All-Mountain West safety, was hopeful he might hear his name called on the third day of the 2020 NFL draft in late April. Following a breakout senior season where he led all defensive backs nationally with a staggering 130 tackles and was named defensive MVP of the Arizona Bowl, Halliburton felt he had a shot at being selected in the sixth or seventh rounds. At the very least, he thought he would sign fairly quickly with a club as an undrafted free agent. It's been 18 days since the draft came and went, and Halliburton is still wondering what went wrong.

Were his stats not as meaningful as he thought? Was playing in the MW being held against him? Could he have done anything differently during the season and in the pre-draft process? And, perhaps most importantly: Was football still in the cards for him? "It went the worst way it could possibly go for me," Halliburton told WyoSports. "I've been questioning everything really, what to do with my life. Should I just move on?" Halliburton is staying ready if that phone call from the NFL comes, and he isn't expecting to be given a job. All he wants, he said, is a chance. And the fact he hasn't gotten one so far is what hurts the most. "I can't keep waiting for an opportunity," he said. "What's a tough pill to really swallow is not getting a shot … I've seen so much over the last four years." - Wyoming Tribune Eagle

  03/23/20 - Logan WilsonrSr/2020, Wyoming, 6-2, 241 (DS#3 ILB) + More +

  Wilson had a storied career that saw him collect 421 tackles, ranking fourth in UW history. The 2019 Butkus Award finalist has seen his draft stock rise since the start of his senior season. Seen somewhat as a fringe prospect prior to 2019, Wilson put himself on the board with 105 tackles and four interceptions as a redshirt senior, displaying the type of playmaking NFL clubs covet. The team captain was the heart and soul of a stout Cowboys defense that surrendered just 17.8 points per game last season. Wilson also played in the prestigious Senior Bowl in January, where he logged two tackles. "He had good tape and he was able to play out in space. He's smart, but it was going to be important that he would run well," UW coach Craig Bohl said. "(Scouts) are doing their due diligence and homework, and that's usually an indication when a guy's moving up. They're digging a little bit more to make sure they got the right guy."

One of the questions on Wilson going into the combine was his speed and athleticism; his subsequent performance alleviated such questions. "I thought I accomplished what I wanted to at the combine. I talked it over with my agent and my trainer, and didn't think I needed to redo anything like that (at Pro Day)," Wilson said. "I wanted to excel in the position drills, mainly. "They put us through some different position drills than we did at the combine. I wanted to show that I was still able to do those." - Wyoming Tribune Eagle

  03/13/20 - Alijah HalliburtonSr/2020, Wyoming, 6-0, 197 (DS#11 SS) + More +

  With the proverbial chip on his shoulder firmly intact, Alijah Halliburton made the most of the biggest job interview of his life. The former University of Wyoming safety was one of 10 former Cowboys who participated in the school's Pro Day workout Tuesday morning. The workouts are for NFL scouts and personnel to observe players preparing for the 2020 NFL Draft, which begins April 23-25. A total of 23 NFL teams had representatives in attendance, according to a UW spokesman. A total of 13 former UW players were on NFL rosters last season. At one end of the spectrum Tuesday stood Logan Wilson, the All-American linebacker from Casper, who has shot up draft boards since his NFL Combine workout in late February. Wilson is widely projected to be drafted in the middle rounds of the upcoming draft.

On the other end was Halliburton, a 2019 first team All-Mountain West selection that did not earn a combine invite or any postseason all-star game invitations. "To be honest with you, (the toughest part of this process has been) making sure I'm staying calm. Anything can happen. Maybe I might slip or something, just making sure that I go 100% even if I slip, still finish the line, don't get frustrated. Just be there mentally and just keep on working. "I definitely want to get drafted. Everyone wants to get drafted...I have high expectations for myself, I always have. You can ask Coach Bohl about that...I want to be the best and I'm going to do the best." - Wyoming Tribune

  03/10/20 - Tyler HallSr/2020, Wyoming, 5-08, 186 (DS#76 CB) + More +

  University of Wyoming Football held its annual NFL Pro Day on Tuesday and the interest in former Cowboys was high as 23 NFL teams were represented to workout 10 draft-eligible Pokes. The 10 former Cowboys displayed their talents in hopes of earning an opportunity to play professional football at the highest level. Among the Cowboys who completed their college eligibility last season and who were part of the testing on Tuesday were: punter Ryan Galovich, defensive end Josiah Hall, cornerback/kick returner Tyler Hall, safety Alijah Halliburton, tight end Josh Harshman, wide receiver Raghib Ismail Jr., linebacker Cassh Maluia, wide receiver John Okwoli, kicker Cooper Rothe and linebacker Logan Wilson.

While NFL representatives don't release official testing data from Pro Day, one of the reported highlights of the day was when cornerback Tyler Hall was timed as fast as 4.38 seconds in the 40-yard dash. In comparison to times ran at this year's NFL Combine in Indianapolis, Hall's 4.38 time in the 40 would have tied him for the fifth fastest time ran at this year's NFL Combine. - Wyoming Football

  Xazavian Valladay ran for 204 yards and scored two touchdowns, quarterback Levi Williams accounted for four scores and Wyoming rolled over Georgia State. Wyoming (8-5) started slow before scoring two quick touchdowns late in the first quarter and early in the second. The Cowboys built a 14-point lead by halftime and racked up 524 total yards to win a bowl game after being left out of the postseason last year. Williams made his first career start after Tyler Vander Waal entered the transfer portal but remained with the team for bowl practices. The freshman was poised under the bowl spotlight, throwing for three touchdowns and running for another. Georgia State (7-6) jumped to a 10-0 lead in the first quarter but had a hard time stopping the big-play Cowboys. The Panthers twice turned the ball over on downs deep in Wyoming's end in the second half. - AP College Football

He was also fifth in the Ancient Eight in field goals per game (0.67, 83rd nationally). Null connected on a PAT and a 49-yard field goal, a career-long and the sixth-longest in school history, while punting eight times at Harvard and booted a game-winning, 41-yard field goal with nine seconds left to give the Big Red a 37-35 win over Brown. That capped a day that saw him go 3-for-3 on field goals (38, 29, 41 yards) and 4-of-4 on PATs while also averaging 42.0 yards on three punts with one downed inside the Brown 5. He booted a pair of field goals and averaged 36.0 yards per punt with three downed inside the 20 on seven attempts in the win at No. 12 Dartmouth. - Cornell Football
