This is good news all around for the school and its fans as it gives the masses one last look at Josh Allen in Brown & Gold before he ( most likely) declares for the 2018 NFL Draft. It also is a major boost to the Wyoming offense who has struggled in back to back losses with Nick Smith under center. The Cowboys now have a better chance to defeat the Central Michigan Chippewas on the blue turf in Boise, Idaho.
With Josh Allen back in the fold, the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl becomes must-see viewing on Friday afternoon.
