LARAMIE – The University of Wyoming’s scheduled home football game against Utah has been canceled after the Pac-12 Conference announced Friday it will only play conference games this fall due to COVID-19.

The Utes – a Mountain West foe of the Cowboys until 2010 – were set to play at War Memorial Stadium on Sept. 19, a marquee matchup and one of the premier opponents slated to appear on the Cowboys’ (8-5 in 2019) schedule. Utah went 11-3 last season and finished the season ranked No. 16 in the final Associated Press poll.
