University of Wyoming senior wide receiver Ayden Eberhardt makes a catch during the Cowboys' 34-24 loss to Colorado State on Thursday, Nov. 5, 2020, at Canvas Stadium in Fort Collins, Colo.

LARAMIE — The University of Wyoming’s scheduled matchup with Utah State on Thursday at War Memorial Stadium has been canceled due to COVID-19 cases within the Aggies program, the Mountain West announced in a news release. The game will be ruled a no contest.

It is the second game in a row for the Cowboys (1-2) that has been canceled due to COVID-19 issues at the opposing program. UW was supposed to play Air Force last weekend, but the game was called off due to rising cases at the academy.
