Mace was a productive player in 2005 -- his first season competing at the NCAA Division I-A level. He transferrred to Wyoming from Palomar Community College in California. At the conclusion of 2006 spring drills, he was listed as the co-starter at defensive end with senior Aaron Robbins, who returns after missing all of last season due to a knee injury.

His best games came at Air Force, with five tackles, and against Louisiana Monroe, with four tackles. He transferred to Wyoming from Palomar Community College in California in January of 2005 and participated in spring drills with the Cowboys. Mace concluded spring drills No. 2 on the depth chart at defensive tackle behind Jake Mayes.

He joined Brandon Bell (cornerback) and Ron Rockett (strong safety) on the Cowboy roster.

Mace was recruited by Michigan State, Oregon State and Washington coming out of junior college.

He was selected as a team captain, was named Defensive Player of the Year at his high school, was MVP of his basketball team and was named his school's athlete of the year.
