LARAMIE -- Welcome to championship weekend.

If you're like me, you think to yourself, 'how many teams did Wyoming play during the regular season that will be battling for conference crowns over the next two days?'

That answer is four: Texas, UNLV, Boise State and Appalachian State

The Cowboys were 1-3 against that foursome, the lone win coming in miraculous fashion in Laramie against the Mountaineers. That took defensive end DeVonne Harris blocking a field-goal attempt and speedy cornerback Jakorey Hawkins scooping and scoring from 62 yards out. Tight end John Michael Gyllenborg snagged a two-point conversion and nickelback Wrook Brown capped that 22-19 victory with an interception deep inside UW territory.

The others, aside from a stellar first three quarters in Austin, were lopsided losses.

What could have been.
