LARAMIE, Wyo. -
When the Wyoming Cowboy football team takes to the road this fall, fans across America's interstates and highways will take notice of a sharp new design on the team's equipment truck.
The Cowboys' 18-wheel equipment truck, which carries all of UW's football equipment to road games, was recently given a new appearance.
The truck's new design features the text "Cowboy Football" and a massive Cowboy football helmet. It also features a Nike logo, representing Cowboy football's new relationship with the apparel company. The logos of the truck's sponsors are displayed proudly on the sides and back of the trailer.
The Cowboy football equipment truck would not be possible without the support of some great companies. The equipment truck itself is provided by Arrow Moving and Storage of Cheyenne, the tractor is provided by Peterbilt of Wyoming in Cheyenne, and the project is financed by Jonah Bank and the Cowboy Joe Club.
The redesigned truck, which arrived in Laramie today, will make its first trip of the 2009 football season on Friday, September 18, as it takes Wyoming's gear to Boulder, Colo. for UW's game with the Colorado Buffaloes.
