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

After Saturday night's game, Christensen questioned whether Air Force quarterback Connor Dietz was really injured when he left the game for one play with an injury with about eight minutes left. He said the several minutes that trainers attended to Dietz gave Air Force time to strategize the next play.

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 with the first half of the season get the best of him.

Falcons coach Troy Calhoun described his conversation with Christensen as "probably not a conversation that I'd have with my mom."
