Wyoming kicker John Hoyland has been named the Mountain West Conference special teams player of the week for his performance in the Cowboys 37-34 OT loss to Nevada on Saturday.

The walk-on true Freshman from Broomfield, Colorado connected on all four of his field goal attempts, including a 42-yard kick that forced overtime and also went two for two on PAT’s.

Hoyland earned the start late last week after not even being listed on the Pokes initial game week depth chart last Monday.
