LARAMIE, Wyo. -

The University of Wyoming Cowboy and Cowgirl basketball programs will host a special season ticket promotion, which has been dubbed the Brown and Gold Basketball Bash, this Saturday, October 10 from 9-11 a.m. in the Arena-Auditorium.

Upper level season tickets for the Cowboys and all season tickets for the Cowgirls will be available at a 20 percent discount.

Fans purchasing season tickets on Saturday will have the opportunity to pop a balloon attached to their new seats. The balloons contain free gifts including season tickets, vouchers for Arena-Auditorium concessions, UW apparel and more.

Upper level Cowboy season tickets will be available for $140 (regularly $179), and all Cowgirl basketball season tickets will be available for $79 (regularly $99).

Members of the Cowboy and Cowgirl basketball teams will be in attendance at the event, and fans will be able to meet and mingle with their favorite players.

The Cowboys will host 19 games in the Arena-Auditorium this season, the second most in school history. The Cowgirls will host 15 home games this season, which is highlighted by a home game against Oregon, whom the Cowgirls last welcomed in the second round of the 2007 WNIT.

The Brown and Gold Bash will precede Wyoming's 85th Homecoming football game against the New Mexico Lobos. The Cowboys and Lobos will kick off at 12 p.m. from War Memorial Stadium.
