Wyoming piled up 167 yards on the ground compared to Tennessee's 101 yards. Top rusher Devin Moore gained 98 yards, and Wynel Seldon added 40. Stutzriem finished 8-for-16 for 95 yards and the touchdown.
Tennessee had a shot to grab the lead, stopping Moore one yard short of a fourth-and-3 at the Tennessee 24 with 12:24 in the fourth quarter.
The Vols drove 59 yards, but found themselves with a fourth-and-8 at the Wyoming 19. Crompton threw to a diving Denarius Moore, who couldn't stretch far enough to grab the ball. Crompton finished 11-for-27 for 91 yards.
Tennessee had one last chance, but sputtered at the Wyoming 47 on fourth-and-18 with just under two minutes to play.
The Vols' only successful drive came on their first possession of the second half, helped by a 23-yard run by Lennon Creer. Crompton found Gerald Jones in the end zone on an 8-yard pass to pull the Vols within 13-7 with 10:08 in the third quarter.
Dennis Rogan recovered a fumble by Stutzriem at the Vols 48 with about 10 minutes in the third quarter, but Tennessee could only move the ball 2 yards on the drive, and Britton Colquitt punted.
