The Cowgirls open the season Aug. 9 with an exhibition game at BYU. Wyoming's regular season commences Aug. 15 at Washington.

The home opener is Aug. 25 against South Dakota State at 12 p.m. The remaining non-conference slate features matches at Colorado (Aug. 22), at Northern Colorado (Sept. 5), versus Montana (Sept. 8), versus South Dakota (Sept. 15), versus Oregon State (Sept. 19) and at Weber State (Sept. 22).

The Mountain West Conference portion of Wyoming's schedule starts on the road with a pair of Front Range rivals in Colorado College (Sept. 26) and Air Force (Sept. 29). The Cowgirls return to Laramie for their longest home stretch of 2024, hosting Fresno State (Oct. 3), San Jose State (Oct. 6), Utah State (Oct. 10) and Boise State (Oct. 13).

Wyoming goes to the Silver State for a pair of league games at Nevada (Oct. 17) and UNLV (Oct. 20). The Cowgirls conclude the home portion of their schedule against San Diego State (Oct. 24) and New Mexico (Oct. 27) before ending the regular season at Colorado State (Oct. 31).

"There's definitely some games on there that will test us, and there's a lot of games that will help us," head coach Josh Purdum said. "Any time you can build a schedule that will mimic some of your conference, it's always a plus. There are teams in our league that can compete with the Washingtons and Colorados, while the South Dakota States and Northern Colorados play a lot of our league in the non-conference, so we'll be able to compare results with the schedule that has been put in place."

The conference tournament takes place at San Diego State this season after the Aztecs won the 2023 regular-season title. The six-team bracket runs from Nov. 3-9.
