Christensen apologizes for comments after AFA loss

LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) -- Wyoming football coach Dave Christensen is apologizing for his actions and comments after the Cowboys' 28-27 loss to Air Force.

After Saturday night's game, Christensen confronted Air Force coach Troy Calhoun on the field and questioned whether Falcons quarterback Connor Dietz was really injured when he left the game for one play in the fourth quarter. He said the several minutes that trainers attended to Dietz gave Air Force time to strategize the next play, which was Air Force's winning touchdown.

The referee announced that Dietz, by rule, had to leave the game because his helmet came off.

In a statement Sunday evening, Christensen said he let his emotions and frustrations get the best of him.
