FRESNO, California — Freshman Brian Hill had 281 yards rushing and 106 yards receiving in his first career start and Wyoming got its first road win of the season 45-17 over Fresno State on Saturday night.

Hill's 387 yards from scrimmage set the Mountain West and Wyoming single-game records for all-purpose yards. It was also second-best rushing performance in program history behind Kevin Lowe's 302 yards against South Dakota State in 1984.
