Wyoming will host Western Colorado in a November 2 exhibition contest to begin the season. The 2023-24 season officially begins with a contest Nov. 6 to tip-off the regular season against North Dakota in Laramie. This will be the second consecutive season the Cowgirls and Fighting Hawks have faced off in the season opener as UW traveled to Grand Forks last season.

Nebraska comes to town Nov. 10 as it marks the third consecutive season the Cowgirls and Huskers will face-off. It will be the first time since 2006 that UW will host Nebraska. After that, the Cowgirls will play their next two on the road, Nov. 14 against Denver and the 18th at Gonzaga. Wyoming and Denver have played every season dating back to 2007 while the Bulldogs and Cowgirls will meet for the fifth-straight year.

The Cowgirls close the month of November with a pair of home contests beginning Nov. 21 against Chadron State. The game with CSC will be Wyoming’s annual Education Day Game.

Nov. 28, BYU will come to Laramie for the first meeting with the Cougars since they left the Mountain West in 2011.

December opens with another big time contest as the Cowgirls travel to Stillwater, Okla., for a game against Oklahoma State on the third. OSU has made a trip to the NCAA Tournament twice in the last three seasons. Wyoming’s final home non-conference contest comes Dec. 10 against Creighton. The Bluejays have made each of the last two NCAA Tournaments.

Wyoming closes its non-con slate with a trip to Montana State for a Dec. 17 contest. The Cowgirls will also play in a neutral-site tournament for the third-straight season as they travel to Las Vegas Dec. 20-22 for the Holiday Hoops Classic. UW will play a pair of neutral games at the tournament to close its non-conference action.

Just The Facts: Size Doesn't Matter For Wyoming's War Memorial Stadium

Did you know it would take the populations of Gillette (32,857), Laramie (32,381), Rock Springs (23,319), Sheridan (17,844) and Wright (1,200) to create a sellout inside Michigan's famed 107,601-seat Big House, the largest college football stadium in the nation?

For those of you not familiar with the Cowboy State, those are Wyoming's third through sixth most inhabited cities, along with the small mining town in Campbell County.
