LARAMIE — With a 23-10 victory over New Mexico Saturday, Wyoming (5-2 overall, 2-1 Mountain West) crept closer to bowl eligibility. To be bowl eligible, a team must have at least as many regular season wins as it does losses; only one win against a Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) team can count toward that total.  

A season ago, the Cowboys finished 6-6 but were not invited to a bowl. The Pokes played in the Poinsettia Bowl and Famous Idaho Potato Bowl in 2016 and 2017, respectively.

Wyoming has played in a total of 15 bowl games.

With five games remaining in its regular season slate, Wyoming is one win away from being bowl eligible. Every Sunday, sports publications create new bowl projections, listing potential participants in all 40 bowls. Here is a list of where the Cowboys are projected to play.
