Horned Frogs take first conference win, defeat Wyoming Cowboys 26-3

The Horned Frogs (5-2 overall and 1-2 in conference) are back to their winning ways after defeating the Wyoming Cowboys and taking their second-straight win.Head coach Gary Patterson attributed much of the win to the resurgence of his offense, which he said had been unable to back up his defense in the preceding weeks.

"This was probably the most complete game we've had as a team," Patterson said. "Defensively, we really haven't ever played that bad all year. You say, we gave up 31 points to BYU, but, with a healthy John Beck, not very many people are holding him down."

SGA 2007 budget funds unnecessary events

In reading the 2007 budget for the Student Government Association, one has to question why SGA and Programming Council are spending so much money on events. Especially ones in which the majority of students both on and off campus are wholly unaware.

NACA National? Frog of the Week? Movie Night Series?

These are just a few of the SGA-sponsored campus events, which just less than $8,000 is poured into this semester.

Another $600 is spent on SGA parties and $4,250 on an unknown event called "Lunch Bunch."

Online Exclusive!!! Undefeated no more, man

Lack of focus, maturity and physicality led to the Horned Frogs 31-17 loss to the BYU Cougars Thursday night."You have to give BYU all the credit," head coach Gary Patterson said. "For some reason, in this program, we don't seem to be able to handle success. This ballgame here was the most important ballgame on our schedule up to this point. I don't think you can take anything away from coach Mendenhall. They worked on a short week and they came here and got after us. You got to give BYU a little bit of credit. I thought they did a great job.
