Wyoming Football is on the rise, having hosted the 2016 Mountain West Conference Championship Game and earning a bid to the 2016 San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl. Along the way, the Cowboys defeated two Top 25 ranked programs in Boise State and San Diego State, had three players earn All-America honors and garnered national attention for the University and state of Wyoming as they appeared on multiple national network telecasts in 2016.
This coming season, Wyoming returns Mountain West Conference Coach of the Year Craig Bohl, who signed a new seven-year contract to continue to build Wyoming into a nationally-competitive program. Cowboy quarterback Josh Allen also returns for his junior season and will be one of the nation’s top QBs in 2017. The Cowboy defense will be led by dynamic playmakers Andrew Wingard, who was one of 16 national semifinalists for the 2016 Jim Thorpe Award as the nation’s top defensive back, and 2016 freshman All-American linebacker Logan Wilson of Casper, Wyo.
The Cowboys look to continue to build a nationally-competitive program this coming season and look to continue to build on a great game-day atmosphere that fans experienced in 2016. To enhance the fan experience in 2017 even more options are being added, including beer and wine sales.
The 2017 schedule will feature a rare, seven-game home schedule, including hosting the Oregon Ducks on Saturday, Sept. 16. In January 2015, Oregon played in the inaugural College Football Playoff National Championship Game, and in January 2011 the Ducks played in the BCS National Championship Game. Oregon has been one of the most successful programs in the nation over the past decade.
In addition to hosting Oregon on Saturday, Sept. 16, Wyoming will host Colorado State in the 109th edition of “The Border War”. Other Mountain West Conference home games will feature 2016 bowl participants Hawai’i and New Mexico, along with Fresno State. Non-conference home games versus Texas State and Gardner-Webb will round out the seven-game home schedule. Three of the non-conference home games are slated for September. The only other seasons Wyoming has played a seven-game home schedule were in 1990 and 2008. The Pokes will kick off the 2017 season on the road at Big Ten member Iowa on Sept. 2.
