LARAMIE, Wyo. -
Wyoming fans will have an opportunity to see both the Wyoming Cowboy Football team and Cowboy Basketball team play home games on the same day on Saturday, Nov. 1, 2003.
The Wyoming-Colorado State football game was selected on Monday by ESPN+Plus (ESPN Regional) as its Mountain West Conference game of the week for Nov. 1. By being selected as the ESPN+Plus game of the week, kickoff for that game was set at 1:00 p.m., Mountain time. This year's meeting will mark the 95th edition of the "Border War" between the Cowboys and Rams.
Later in the day on Nov. 1, the Wyoming Cowboy Basketball team will tip off its 2003-04 season at 6:35 p.m. against the EA Sports All-Stars. That will be the first of two exhibition games for the Cowboys. The Cowboy Basketball team will also host another EA Sports All-Star team on Saturday, Nov. 8 in a game to be played at 7:00 p.m.
The game time for the Nov. 1 basketball game was moved up to an earlier start time of 6:35 p.m., from a normal 7:00 p.m. start, in order to minimize the time fans would have to wait between games and make it more convenient for Cowboy fans to see both games.
