The September 10th game featuring Wyoming traveling to Nebraska to take on the Cornhuskers will appear on ESPN2, announced by the Big 10 Conference earlier this week. The game will be a 10am kickoff from Lincoln. This will mark the ninth game on the Wyoming schedule that will appear on TV. Other Cowboy football games will be decided later once Root Sports and the Mountain West Network are able to sort through the remaining games and contracts.
Wyoming Athletics is planning a tailgate for the game where there will be a performance by Chancey Williams and the Younger Brothers Band. The Pokes last traveled to Lincoln in 2013, 37-34 loss to the Huskers. Of the players on the Cowboys roster only four starters made the last trip to Lincoln. Shaun Wick, Lucas Wacha, Tanner Gentry, and Ethan Wood all started the last game against the Huskers. The other four Cowboys still on the roster who traveled to Lincoln were Eric Nzeocha, Justin Martin, Jake Maulhardt, and Brendan Turelli. This team has changed considerably since the last time the Cowboys were in Lincoln, including head coaches. Craig Bohl will return to the place he played college football, this time as an opposing coach.
