LARAMIE, Wyo. -- Nate Grimes had a career-high 20 points to go with 12 rebounds as Fresno State thundered past Wyoming 80-62 on Saturday afternoon.

Fresno State sprinted to an early lead and went into intermission holding a 46-30 advantage. The Bulldogs finished with the largest victory margin in their history in a Mountain West road game.
