TUCSON, Ariz. — University of Wyoming true freshman quarterback Levi Williams will make his first career start in the Arizona Bowl against Georgia State, coach Craig Bohl announced Monday.

Williams, a Texas native and three-star recruit in the class of 2019, has played in the past two games for the Cowboys and is 8 of 13 passing for 109 yards and an interception. Williams has also run for 128 yards and a touchdown. Bohl said Williams' dual-threat ability allows the team to "open the playbook."
