LARAMIE, Wyo. - The opening-day uniforms for the Wyoming Cowboy Football Team were announced Monday by head coach Dave Christensen. In what was a close vote among more than 12,000 votes cast by Cowboy fans, the traditional home combination of brown jersey and gold pants won out. The traditional white helmet with brown Bucking Horse and Rider logo also came in first.
Coming in a close second was the combination of gold jersey and brown pants, with Wyoming's new brown helmet being a close second choice.
"We had a great response from our fans," said Christensen. "Our traditional uniform combination (brown jersey and gold pants) and white helmet came out the slight winner. But because the voting was so close, we have decided that the second week of the season we will wear the gold jersey and brown pant combination along with our new brown helmet versus Texas State."
