LARAMIE, Wyo. - Billy Farris threw three touchdown passes to Dion Morton as Colorado State came from behind to beat Wyoming 31-20 on Saturday and secure bowl eligibility.

Colorado State (6-6, 4-4 Mountain West) started slow but relied on big plays and Wyoming turnovers to make head coach Steve Fairchild the winningest first-year coach in Rams' history.

Farris was 15-of-25 with one interception and touchdown passes of 31, 43 and 51 yards to Morton, who finished with six catches for 160 yards.

Senior running back Wynel Seldon led the Cowboy rushing attack with 107 yards on 19 carries. Quarterback Chris Stutzriem was 20-of-37 for 89 yards with no interceptions.

Wyoming (4-8, 1-7) continued to be hampered by turnovers, losing three fumbles at key points in the game.

The Cowboys ended their fourth straight losing season under six-year coach Joe Glenn, prompting speculation about his future with Wyoming.
