CHEYENNE -- With a new season comes renewed optimism.

But, somethings are sacred.

We compiled a list of things we think most Wyoming football fans have in common. Want to add to the list? Share your thoughts on our social media sites. Are we way off? You can share that, too.

The Cowboys open the season Aug. 31 when the Missouri Tigers come to town. You might experience a few -- or all -- of these things Saturday afternoon.

Enjoy!
