SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -Darrell Mack ran for 97 yards and two touchdowns and Utah held Wyoming to 122 yards of offense in the Utes' 50-0 shutout of the Cowboys on Saturday.

Louie Sakoda kicked three field goals, which was all the scoring the Utes (7-3, 4-2) needed in their sixth straight win and first Mountain West Conference shutout since beating rival Brigham Young 3-0 in 2003.

The Utes forced five turnovers and had six sacks against the Cowboys (5-5, 2-4). Wyoming has lost four of five.

Gabe Long had three sacks for the Utes, including one that forced Karsten Sween to fumble at the Wyoming 31-yard line. Brian Johnson completed the short drive for Utah with a 9-yard touchdown pass to Bradon Godfrey that put the Utes up 40-0 at halftime.

Receiver Jereme Brooks ran for two touchdowns, scoring on a 16-yard reverse as the Utes' kept the Cowboys off guard with an array of trick plays.

Sakoda, who kicked field goals of 32, 26 and 41 yards, completed a pass to defensive lineman Neli A'asa for 41 yards on a fake punt. The play helped set up Mack's second 1-yard touchdown run of the game, which put Utah ahead 33-0 in the second quarter.

Wynel Selden had 40 yards on eight carries for the Cowboys. Sween was just 8-for-23 for 41 yards.

Wyoming had not been shut out since a 31-0 loss to Texas A&M in 2004.
