Wyoming searches for stability in secondary vs. Falcons

Oct 12, 2012 - The Associated Press

LARAMIE -- Darrenn White plays cornerback, per the University of Wyoming football roster.

But the sophomore started at strong safety in the Cowboys' 35-28 overtime loss at Nevada. White could see more time at safety this week as UW (1-4 overall, 0-1 Mountain West) hosts Air Force (2-3, 1-1) at 5 p.m. on Saturday.

Other defensive backs could play other positions Saturday -- and the rest of the season.

"With the secondary guys we have seven or eight guys that are interchangeable at different places," coach Dave Christensen said.

Christensen said he includes cornerbacks and safeties in that mix, but so far most of the changes have come at safety. More changes could come as senior free safety Luke Ruff left the Nevada game with an injury.
