SEAST LANSING - "That first half
A was the poorest half of football I've
ever be en associated with," said
Michigan State football coach Darryl
"That second half was the poorest
we've played," said' Wyoming foot-
ball coach Bill Lewis.
Both men were referring to yester-
day's meeting between the two
teams, and, after the Spartans'
come-from-behind 34-16 triumph, it
became apparent that State's worst
..effort was no match for the Cowboys'
level of futility,
The first thirty minutes saw the
Spartans commit almost every men-
tal error imaginable. Four dropped
passes, several key penalties,two

plus two turnovers, stymied drive

these miscues into two touchdowns
and a field goal for a 16-0 halftime
C advantage. '
After the intermission, an aroused
State offensive squad put on a show

racking up its 34 points in a
