LARAMIE, Wyo. -

Sept. 1 is national College Colors Day, when football fans from coast to coast can show their spirit by donning their schools colors.

In conjunction with its season opener at the Utah State University Sept. 2, the University of Wyoming is calling for its students, alumni, faculty and fans - wherever they may live - to kick off the national celebration of College Colors Day by wearing brown.

College Colors Day is a nationwide initiative by the Collegiate Licensing Company to promote the traditions and spirit that drive collegiate athletics. Officially licensed Wyoming apparel is available online from UW Athletics, and the University Bookstore.
