The following week, Wyoming will host the Hawai’i Rainbow Warriors on Saturday, Sept. 23 in a game to be televised by ESPN Networks.

The announcement on Wednesday included 44 Mountain West nationally-televised games.

Additional telecasts by ROOT SPORTS, the Mountain West Network on Campus Insiders and OC Sports (for select Hawai’i games) will be announced at later dates. At the time those televised games are announced it is anticipated that additional game times will also be released. Television coverage and the game time of Wyoming’s season-opening game at Iowa on Saturday, Sept. 2 has also not yet been announced.

Game times and specific outlets for ESPN Network games (e.g. ESPN, ESPN2, etc.) will generally be announced 12 days in advance of those games.

High ticket demand is anticipated all season for home games, but especially for the Oregon game and “The Border War” game versus Colorado State. Cowboy Joe Club members and 2017 football season-ticket holders will have an exclusive window to purchase additional single-game tickets to those two games from June 1 through June 15th. Oregon single-game tickets will be priced from $70-$100 (Youth: $60), while Border War tickets will be priced from $40-$75 (Youth: $25-$30).

Should any tickets remain after the exclusive period for Cowboy Joe Club members and season-ticket holders, UW Athletics will put single-game tickets on sale to the public at a date to be determined.

For the best seat options, and to ensure tickets to all seven home games, Cowboy Fans are strongly encouraged to buy season tickets. 2017 season tickets start as low as $149 for adults and $89 for youth and are on sale now at, in person at the University of Wyoming Athletics Ticket Office or by calling 307-766-7220.

This coming season, Wyoming returns Mountain West Conference Coach of the Year Craig Bohl, who signed a new seven-year contract to continue to build Wyoming into a nationally-competitive program. Cowboy quarterback Josh Allen also returns for his junior season and will be one of the nation’s top QBs in 2017. The Cowboy defense will be led by dynamic playmakers Andrew Wingard, who was one of 16 national semifinalists for the 2016 Jim Thorpe Award as the nation’s top defensive back, and 2016 Freshman All-American linebacker Logan Wilson of Casper, Wyo.
