LARAMIE, Wyo. -
The University of Wyoming football team will kick off its 2003 football season on Saturday, Aug. 30 when they host the Montana State Bobcats.
It will be the first game in War Memorial Stadium for first-year Cowboy head coach Joe Glenn and his staff. Game time is set for 2:00 p.m., Mountain time.
The Cowboys are led by senior quarterback Casey Bramlet and senior wide receiver Ryan McGuffey on offense, while the defense is led by standout linebacker Tyler Gottschalk, a senior. The Cowboys also have one of the nation's top punters in the country in senior Luke Donovan.
Bramlet has been named to the Davey O'Brien Award preseason watch list, honoring the nation's top quarterback.
