The month of October was a successful one for the Wyoming football team. The Pokes went 2-1 with wins over Utah State and New Mexico. The only blemish in October was a road loss at Boise State on the blue turf. During these three games, there was one player on the defensive side of the ball who stood out to us on the WyoNation staff. He is a tall defensive end who Mountain West quarterbacks are starting to have nightmares about.

The Pokes have been defensive heavy this season and Carl Granderson is having a breakout year coming off last year’s knee injury.¬†Granderson has had had a great month of October for the Cowboys. Granderson’s October numbers include: 3.5 sacks, 22 tackles and two interceptions (Yes, Interceptions!). He is a high motor player who is coming into his own and is only going to get better with experience. There is a good chance when his time in Laramie is over, you will be seeing this Cowboy playing on Sundays. Congrats to Carl Granderson for winning this WyoNation honor for the month of October.

The results of the vote were as follows:

  1. DE Carl Granderson
  2. S Andrew Wingard
  3. QB Josh Allen
