A football rivalry that dates back to the 1920s is being renewed as the University of Wyoming and Brigham Young University announced on Tuesday a two-game, home-and-home series.  The Cowboys will travel to Provo, Utah, on Sept. 24, 2022.  Wyoming will host the Cougars on Sept. 28, 2024.

The Wyoming-BYU series began in the 1922 season.  Through the years, the two teams have played some memorable games, including Wyoming’s first night game played on Sept. 1, 1988, when the Cowboys defeated the Cougars 24-14 on way to the 1988 Western Athletic Conference title.  The most recent meeting between the two old rivals came in the 2016 San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl.  BYU pulled out a 24-21 win in that lone bowl meeting between the two teams.

Through the years, Wyoming and BYU have been conference opponents in the Skyline, Western Athletic and Mountain West Conferences.  The two old foes have played 78 previous times, which ranks as the third longest series for Wyoming versus any opponent.  The only longer series for the Cowboys are the “Border War” series versus Colorado State, which stands at 109 meetings, and an 83-game series versus Utah. 

Below are Wyoming’s future football schedules.  All future schedules are tentative and subject to change.
