LARAMIE – After a midseason swoon, the San Francisco 49ers are back at the top of the league’s power rankings and they made another loud statement Sunday afternoon.  They went into Philadelphia and dominated the Eagles, 42-19. That game featured many good performances, one of which was by a former University of Wyoming student-athlete.

Tashaun Gipson had five tackles. In his 12th year in the National Football League, he has 44 tackles, two tackles for loss, one interception, three passes defended, and one quarterback hit for 9-3 San Francisco.

Gipson wasn’t the only former Wyoming football player making headlines for his professional franchise. Below is a list of former Pokes and how they did in Week 13.
