LARAMIE, Wyo. - The annual Bronze Boot Run will take place this Friday, Dec. 2 leading up to Saturday's 103rd "Border War" game between the Wyoming Cowboys and Colorado State Rams.

The ROTC detachments from the University of Wyoming and Colorado State University will run the game ball the 65 miles between Laramie, Wyo., and Fort Collins, Colo.

This year's run is scheduled to begin at 5:15 a.m. at Wyoming's War Memorial Stadium, when the Wyoming ROTC runners will depart with the game ball. It is expected that the exchange of the game ball will take place sometime between 10:15 and 10:30 a.m. at the Wyoming-Colorado state border on US 287.

Representatives from both schools will be present for the exchange. It is expected that Wyoming head coach Dave Christensen and UW Athletics Director Tom Burman will both take part in this year's ceremony.
