Sept. 13, 2007
LARAMIE, Wyo. -
The Wyoming Cowboys will be looking to improve on their 2-0 start to the 2007 season when they travel to Boise, Idaho, this Saturday to face the Boise State Broncos. Wyoming has not began a season 3-0 since the 1996 season when the Pokes started the season 9-0 on way to a 10-2 record and a final ranking of No. 22 in both the Associate Press Media Poll and the USA Today Coaches' Poll.
Both the Cowboys (2-0 overall) and Broncos (1-1 for the season) enter Saturday's game having received votes in this past week's USA Today Coaches' Poll. Wyoming received three points in the poll to rank No. 38 in the country, while Boise State received 47 points to rank 31st. BSU fell out of the poll this week after losing by a 24-10 score at Washington on Sept. 8. Wyoming is coming off back-to-back home wins over Virginia (23-3) and Utah State (32-18).
The two teams will be meeting for only the fourth time in the two schools histories. Boise State leads the overall series with Wyoming 3-0.
A year ago, Boise State posted a perfect 13-0 record and won the Fiesta Bowl over Oklahoma in overtime. But during that 13-game winning streak, one of the Broncos toughest games came in Laramie against the Cowboys. Wyoming held Boise State to a season low 17 points in a game decided by one touchdown, with BSU winning 17-10.
This week's game is being televised by KTVB of Boise. KCWY-TV of Casper, Wyo., will be carrying the game live across the state of Wyoming. It will also be available on ESPN GamePlan's subscription service.
As with all Wyoming games, the Cowboy Sports Network will broadcast the game on radio beginning one hour prior to kickoff.
