The Colorado State Border War is scheduled for Sept. 29, withBrigham Young coming to Laramie, Nov. 10. New Mexico (Oct. 6) and UNLV(Oct. 27) complete the six-game home offering.

"Any time we have Colorado State and Brigham Young coming toLaramie, it's a great home schedule," Moon said. "But the addition of TexasA&M makes this as good a slate of games in War Memorial, as we have had in along time. This is a much more 'friendly' schedule for Vic (Head CoachKoenning) and the team in that we open at home. It's a very competitiveschedule, but one that gives us a chance to be successful."
