LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) - Wynel Seldon rushed for 112 yards as Wyoming beat Colorado State 24-0 on Saturday, the first time the Cowboys shut out the Rams in the Border War rivalry since 1959.

The teams fought to a near-stalemate in the first half - Aric Goodman's 34-yard field goal in the second quarter was the only score before halftime - before Wyoming went up 17-0 with back-to-back touchdowns in the third quarter.

Wyoming (4-4, 3-1 Mountain West Conference) made it 10-0 when freshman Karsten Sween passed 34 yards to a wide-open Derrick Levy, who jogged in the last 10 yards for his first career touchdown.

On the Cowboys' next possession, Sween found Michael Ford with a 26-yard touchdown pass on fourth down.

In the fourth quarter, Wyoming recovered a fumble by Rams quarterback Caleb Hanie on Colorado State's 42-yard line. Three plays later, Joseph Harris ran in from 25 yards out for the final score.

With about a minute left, Luke Chase intercepted Hanie on the Rams' 28 to end the game.

The teams had the top defenses in the conference going into the game. Wyoming held Colorado State (4-3, 1-2) to 217 yards passing and 42 yards rushing; the Rams held the Cowboys to 152 yards passing and 166 yards rushing.

The game remained scoreless through the first nine possessions until Goodman's field goal midway through the second quarter.
