Each grab was for a touchdown, as he scored versus Toledo and Fresno State.

2011: Lange had quite a journey in the offseason, as the coaching staff had planned to move him from defensive end to defensive tackle. That changed in the fall, when he moved to H-Back and began focusing on being a lead blocker. Lange played in all 13 games, starting three versus Texas State, Air Force and Temple in the Gildan New Mexico Bowl at H-back. Lange helped four Wyoming players reach more than 300 yards rushing in 2011, including Brett Smith (710), Alvester Alexander (695), Ghaali Muhammad (379) and Brandon Miller with 364.
