MW championship

The University of Wyoming football team completed another first for the program Sunday when the Mountain West announced that the Cowboys would host the Mountain West Championship game at 5:45 p.m. Saturday at War Memorial Stadium in Laramie.

Wyoming finished the regular season 8-4 overall and 6-2 in MW Mountain Division play following a 56-35 loss at New Mexico. The Cowboys, Lobos and Boise State all finished tied for the top of the Mountain Division at 6-2, but the Cowboys were the division champions due to a better overall record against all Mountain division teams.

Hey, Pokes fans, let's pack the joint on Saturday! I hope we see every seat filled and game day gold everywhere (or gameday Carhartt is fine, too). [smile] Time to come out in full support of this team that has overachieved.


The UW football team is improved over this past year. They are not yet a good football team. The MW Championship is being played by two blowout losers at 7220' elevation on Dec. 3 and there will be few fans traveling from San Diego. No matter which team wins this rematch there will not be a major bowl asking for them to play there. The sumise will be that the MW conference is weak compared to the other conferences and thus UW may end up playing New Mexico in their bowl or perhaps the potato bowl against Boise St. The Vegas Bowl is likely to choose someone else even tho they have a first chance pick of the MW Conf.
