Pokes, Broncos to battle on ESPN
LARAMIE -- This one is so big ESPN is picking it up.
Not ESPNU. Not ESPN 2. Not any of those annoying streaming services.
The main channel.
Wyoming and Boise State will kickoff at 8:15 p.m. (MST) Saturday, Nov. 9 from Albertson's Stadium. The Cowboys haven't appeared on ESPN since the last time they played on the blue turf in Boise.
That was a win over Central Michigan in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl in 2017.
Wyoming head coach Craig Bohl said it's always a goal to be playing meaningful games in November.
"This game is on ESPN," he said Monday. "That's an indication of the gravity of this game ... It will take all gas we have in the tank to win this game."
In fact, that's the only time a Wyoming team has won in that building. The Pokes are 0-6 all-time there against the home team.
This game has major implications in the Mountain West race. The Broncos are currently 6-1 overall and 3-0 in league play, while Wyoming enters the game 6-2, 3-1.
The winner could join Air Force at the the top of the conference standings. The Cowboys travel to Colorado Springs in the regular season finale.
