The Aztecs, now 21-2 on the season and ranked No. 5 in the nation, faced off against the Cowboys on Tuesday in Wyoming. The Mountain West conference rival came out fast, putting up 32 points in the first half to an Aztec 23.
The Aztecs rallied late in the second half, outscoring the Cowboys 39 to 36. However, it was not enough to hold off Wyoming as San Diego State suffered their first road loss.
