LARAMIE, Wyo. -- Playing at Wyoming is hard on visiting teams, especially those that have come in ranked in the Top 25 this season.Josh Allen threw for two touchdowns, including a 29-yard score to C.J. Johnson with 1:07 left in the game, and Wyoming stopped a 2-point conversion attempt by San Diego State with no time on the clock to upset the No. 24 Aztecs 34-33 on Saturday.It was Wyomings second win this season over a Top 25 team. Wyoming beat then-No. 13 Boise State three weeks ago in Laramie. The Cowboys last beat two ranked teams in one season in 1999.Allen, who completed 16 of 31 passes for 282 yards and also rushed for 56 yards, said the two wins over ranked teams felt similar.Playing here in front of this crowd and at this elevation, its hard to play for four quarters when youre an away team, he said, referring to the oxygen-thin 7,220 foot elevation of War Memorial Stadium.Brian Hill added 131 yards on 31 carries and two TDs for the Cowboys (8-3, 6-1 Mountain West).Johnson finished with five catches for 85 yards.San Diego State (9-2, 6-1) was led by Christian Chapman, who completed 15 of 26 passes for 211 yards and two TDs. Chapmans last TD pass was a 23-yard desperation heave that Quest Truxton caught on the rebound with no time left. The play capped an 11-play, 99-yard drive, and also involved a lengthy review that overturned the original call on the field of an incomplete pass.Seeing that he caught that, it was like a little stab in the stomach, Wyomings Johnson said. But then seeing them go for two, I had faith in our defense.Aztecs coach Rocky Long elected to go for the win and Chapmans 2-point conversion pass attempt was knocked away by defensive back Antonio Hull.In going for the win, Long said he felt his team had the momentum after the 99-yard drive, which he described as unbelievable.Wish we would have moved the ball like that the other 99 percent of the game, he said.Rashaad Penny and Juwan Washington both returned kickoffs for touchdowns for the Aztecs. Pennys was 93 yards, and Washingtons 92 yards.Donnel Pumphrey, who entered the game as the nations leading rusher, was held to 76 yards on 17 carries.We just didnt give him much room to run, Wyoming coach Craig Bohl said.Still, Pumphrey surpassed Hall of Famer Tony Dorsett for third place on the NCAA career rushing list and now has 6,127 yards. He trails Ron Dayne, who amassed 6,397 yards at Wisconsin, and Ricky Williams, who gained 6,279 yards at Texas.THE TAKEWAYSan Diego State: The Aztecs have not won a game in the last 39 years when ranked. Since 1977, San Diego State is 0-4 in games played when the Aztecs are in the Top 25.Wyoming: The upstart Cowboys, who were 2-10 last year, remain tied for the conferences Mountain Division title with a shot at getting to the conference championship game on Dec. 3. If the Cowboys win their last game, they likely will face San Diego State for the conference championship back in Laramie.Im happy were still in the hunt for the Mountain West championship, and we got one more game to go, Hill said.POLL IMPLICATIONSSan Diego State: The Aztecs likely will tumble back out of the poll.

Wholesale Air Jordan . -- Aldon Smith believes he is on the path to being sober for good. PITTSBURGH -- Dan Straily knew before he went to work on Tuesday night his next start wouldnt be in the majors. The All-Star break and a quirk in the Oakland Athletics schedule means the AL West leaders wont need a fifth starter for a couple of weeks. Before hopping a plane for Triple-A Sacramento, the rookie right-hander left a little something to remember him by. Straily (6-2) allowed two hits over 6 1-3 innings, striking out seven and walking three to win his fifth straight decision. "I could have thrown a perfect game and I was going to get optioned out," Straily said. "Its nothing personal. Its the situation were in. It is what it is." The As called up right-hander Sonny Gray to take Strailys spot, hoping the 2011 first-round draft pick can get some work out of the bullpen over the next couple of weeks. That apparently wasnt an option for Straily. Oakland manager Bob Melvin called having someone at the back end of the rotation with Strailys talent a "luxury," one the team can apparently live without until later in the month. "Thats the life of a fifth starter," Melvin said. Even if Straily isnt exactly pitching like one at the moment for the As, who have won 10 of 13. He tossed seven shutout innings in a victory over the Chicago Cubs in his previous start, then backed it up by silencing the quickly cooling Pirates. Straily credited a much-improved curveball for keeping the Pirates off balance. "(Pitching coach) Curt (Young) said in passing in my last bullpen that he thought my curve was good and that I should use it more in games," Straily said. "Its something Ive worked on a lot and youre always trying to get better, but last year I put the curve on the shelf because I was working on the changeup so much." Straily threw just one changeup against the Pirates, and Pedro Alvarez sent it 448 feet to centre in the second for Pittsburghs lone run. "I didnt throw another one after that, so the curveball gave me a third option," Straily said. Grant Balfour worked the ninth to remain perfect in 24 save chances this season. Brandon Moss slammed a two-run homer in the fourth off Gerrit Cole (4-2) to supply all the offence Oakland required. Moss spent parts of three seasons with the Pirates between 2008-10, with Pittsburgh hoping his raw left-handed power would help him pound balls off -- or over -- the Clemente Wall in right field. It never really happened. Moss hit all of 13 homers in 195 games for the Pirates before eventually making his way to Oakland, wwhere hes become a key cog in one of baseballs biggest surprises.dddddddddddd Moss provided a glimpse of what could have been in Pittsburgh in the fourth when Cole wobbled for the briefest of moments. The right-hander had retired nine straight when John Jaso doubled with two outs. Moss followed with his 16th home run of the season, though he hardly viewed it as some sort of revenge. "I had a lot of opportunities here and I didnt do anything with them," Moss said. "Its my fault that Im not here anymore." Pittsburgh had hoped to break loose against Straily, who has struggled starting on four days rest during his brief major league career. Straily came in 0-3 with a 7.16 ERA when not given at least five days between starts. Yet he had no issues dealing with Pittsburghs suddenly punchless offence. The Pirates have scored just six runs during a 2-6 slump that has dropped them behind first-place St. Louis in the heated NL Central race. Alvarez provided Pittsburghs lone run with his drive to the bushes in centre leading off the second. The home run made him the third player in team history to reach 23 homers before the All-Star break, joining Ralph Kiner and Willie Stargell. The Pirates didnt get a runner to third base over the final six innings. Their best chance to tie the game came in the seventh when Alvarez led off with a walk and moved to second on Russell Martins sacrifice bunt. Oakland reliever Sean Doolittle replaced Straily and struck out pinch-hitter Gaby Sanchez before getting Jordy Mercer to pop up to first. Jose Tabata led off the ninth with a single off Balfour, but Andrew McCutchen and Alvarez struck out before Martin grounded out meekly to first as Balfour extended his club record for consecutive save chances converted to 42, dating to last season. NOTES: The start of the game was pushed back due to the potential of inclement weather. While lightning flashed several times during the 1:42 delay, it never actually rained. ... Oakland LF Yoenis Cespedes was selected to the American League team for the Home Run Derby next Monday night in New York. Cespedes, who has 15 home runs this season, is the first As player to be chosen for the Home Run Derby since Jason Giambi in 2001. ... McCutchen went 0 for 3, ending his 10-game hitting streak. ...
