University of Wyoming redshirt freshman quarterback Levi Williams runs into the end zone for a touchdown during the second half of the Cowboys' 34-24 loss to Colorado State on Thursday, Nov. 5, 2020, at Canvas Stadium in Fort Collins, Colo.

LARAMIE – An unexpected bye week isn’t exactly what the University of Wyoming wanted following a Border War loss at Colorado State. But in 2020, preparing for the unexpected is all part of the game.

UW’s matchup against Air Force, scheduled to be played Saturday night at War Memorial Stadium, has been canceled due to COVID-19 cases at the academy and within the Falcons’ program, the Mountain West announced in a news release Sunday afternoon.
