Wyoming-Texas A&M Football Game to be Televised by Fox Sports Net

June 23, 2004

LARAMIE, Wyo. - It was announced today that the Sept. 11, 2004, football game between the University of Wyoming and Texas A&M University will be televised by Fox Sports Net. The game will kickoff at 1:30 p.m., Mountain time (2:30 p.m., Central time) from Kyle Field in College Station, Texas. The announcement was made jointly by Fox Sports Net, the two universities, the Big 12 office and the Mountain West Conference office.

Of particular interest for Wyoming fans is the fact that the game will be carried on Fox Sports Net Rocky Mountain, as well as other Fox Sports Net systems that carry the Big 12 Conference television package.

It is the second Wyoming game to be selected for television broadcast for the upcoming season. Wyoming's other confirmed television broadcast will be on Friday, Oct. 22 on ESPN2 against Colorado State. The Wyoming-CSU game is scheduled to kick off in at 7:30 p.m., Mountain time from Fort Collins, Colo.

"We feel this year's football schedule is one of the most exciting we've had in years," said Wyoming Athletics Director Gary Barta. "It is great for our fans to be able to see these two outstanding road games on television.

"In terms of our home games, we believe that Cowboy fans will have an opportunity to see some exceptional football in person, with the likes of Cotton Bowl Champion Ole Miss, defending Mountain West Conference Champion Utah and longtime rivals Air Force and San Diego State coming to town."

In addition to these two televised games, Wyoming may also be selected for ESPN Regional games through ESPN's television package with the Mountain West Conference. ESPN selects its regional television games 12 days in advance of the game date.

Tickets to Wyoming home games may be obtained online at www.wyomingathletics.com or by calling the UW Athletics Ticket Office at (800) 922-9461 or (307) 766-4850.
