SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The University of Utah pummeled Wyoming 50-to-zero today.

Utah forced five turnovers, collected six sacks and held Wyoming to just 122 yards of gain to defeat the Cowboys.

In the first quarter, Utah (7-3, 4-2) turned a Wyoming muffed punt interception and a failed fake punt from deep within its own territory into a touchdown and two field goals to take a 13-point lead.

That turned out to be just the beginning of Wyoming's woes. Later in the second quarter, wide receiver Jereme Brooks scored his second touchdown of the game on a 16-yard reverse play.

Then Darrel Mack used a 41-yard run to set up his 1-yard rushing touchdown to make the score 26-0.

Brian Johnson's nine-yard touchdown pass to Bradon Godfrey gave Utah a 40-0 halftime advantage.

The last time Utah shutout a conference opponent was a 3-0 over BYU in 2003. The shutout loss marks the first time Wyoming has been held scoreless since a 31-0 loss to Texas A&M in 2004.
