LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) Brett Smith passed for 264 yards and a touchdown, Shaun Wick rushed for two TDs and the Wyoming defense returned two interceptions for scores as the Cowboys beat Northern Colorado 35-7 in a game delayed nearly an hour by lightning Saturday.

Smith completed 30 of 47 passes with one interception. Dominic Rufran caught nine passes for 87 yards, including a 6-yard TD.

Wick ran 16 times for 87 yards, scoring on runs of 1 and 20 yards.

Wyoming (2-1) also scored its first defensive touchdowns of the season with defensive backs Jordan Stanton and Cortland Fort each recording a pick-6. Stanton grabbed a tipped pass and weaved his way around and through would-be tacklers 39 yards for the score, while Fort stepped in front of a pass to the sideline and raced 50 yards untouched.

Tim Tancik led the Bears (1-2), completing 16 of 29 passes for 161 yards and touchdown.
