Allen took over 10th place in career total offense with 4,738 yards. Allen, coming off two sub-par games, completed 14 of 24 passes for 219 yards with no interceptions, connecting with nine different receivers. The defense and special teams nearly overshadowed him. Rico Gafford stepped in front of a fallen receiver near the sideline and picked off a pass by Damian Williams, returning it 37 yards to give Wyoming a 14-3 lead.

09/21/17 - Week 3 Stock Report: Who hurt themselves? Josh Allen, QB, Wyoming, rJR. (6-4, 233, 4.76, #17)...Allen entered this season with immense hype as a potential top-10 NFL Draft pick and with Iowa and Oregon on the schedule in the first three weeks, NFL scouts were eager to see his development. After a poor performance in Iowa City in the opener, Allen had a chance at redemption against the Ducks on Saturday, but it was another disappointing outing as he managed only 37.5 percent completions (9-for-24), for 64 yards, one rushing touchdown and one interception. From a physical standpoint, Allen is elite with the size, arm strength and athleticism that belongs in the NFL.
However, he has shown little development with several critical factors of the position, including poise, touch and overall mental awareness. Allen did lose several key weapons from last season, including Tanner Gentry, Jake Maulhardt and Jacob Hollister, who accounted for 70 percent of his completions last year. Turnover happens in college football and ideally scouts want to see a quarterback adapt, but for a player like Allen, who is so young in quarterback years, it could also possibly stunt his development. The toughest question for NFL scouts moving forward will be to assess the draft value of a player with Allen's immense potential but also lack of development. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
09/17/17 - 10 thoughts on Week 3: Be wary of the QB hype. With quarterbacks, you never know until you know. Size, arm strength, speed ... those are just practice observations, prone to be overstated. We enter into evidence Wyoming's Josh Allen and Nebraska's Tanner Lee, touted in the offseason as first-round talent. Allen has flopped against Iowa and Oregon (a combined 31 of 64 for 238 yards, with three interceptions and no touchdowns) and Lee has fizzled (a national-high seven interceptions) through the Cornhuskers' brutal 1-2 start. - The Sports Xchange
09/15/17 - Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen has been getting a lot of attention these days with speculation about him being among the top NFL quarterback prospects. But Allen says he doesn't pay any heed to any of that. "I'm going out on the field playing for my teammates," he said. "I've got their back, they got mine and we're going to continue to keep playing how we are." Nonetheless, Allen improved his future stock by completing 22 of 32 passes for 328 and two touchdowns in the Cowboys' 27-0 victory over FCS Gardner-Webb last weekend. He had no interceptions and was not sacked. The previous game against Iowa, Allen had no touchdowns and was picked off twice. Allen set the tone early against Gardner-Webb, leading Wyoming to touchdowns on its first two possessions of the game. He completed 10 of 12 passes for 142 yards and a 27-yard TD in the first quarter for the Cowboys. He added a 29-yard TD strike in the second quarter and finished the half with 246 passing yards while completing 16 of 22 attempts. - AP College Football
