TUCSON, Ariz. — The mild 64-degree weather welcomed thousands of Wyoming fans to the Arizona Bowl Dec. 31 in Tucson. The day may have been cool, but it couldn't contain the heat of Wyoming fans in this special bowl edition of rants and raves.

Hearts fell when the Panthers trucked down the field for a touchdown in the first drive of the game, then shot back up when the Pokes scored two touchdowns in as many minutes to take the lead.

With all the ups and downs — although mostly ups — that followed, it's not difficult to guess what was happening on social media.



FIRST QUARTER
