Cowboys Kickoff Times Set For All But Air Force Game
Laramie -- Wyoming Football is catching a break.
The kickoff times for three of the four games which had not been announced were made official on Friday. The Cowboys Oct. 20 game with Utah State at War Memorial will kickoff at 12:20 p.m., and the home game with San Jose State on Nov. 3 will have a noon kickoff.
Wyoming's game at New Mexico Nov. 24 is scheduled for a 12:30 p.m., kickoff.
All three games are expected to be televised by AT&T Rocky Mountain.
That's the good news.
The bad news is the one remaining Wyoming game without an announced kickoff time is the Nov. 17 home game against Air Force. ESPN Networks has the rights to that game. If past history holds true, and the game is significant, it will be shown on ESPN2 or ESPNU. The Mountain West games on the ESPN networks typically fill the day's late time slot, which would mean a kickoff at 8 p.m, or shortly thereafter.
ESPN does not have to make a decision on game time until 10 days before the game.
It was also recently announced by the University of Hawaii that Wyoming’s road game in Honolulu on Saturday, Oct. 6 will be played at 10 p.m., M.T. (6 p.m., H.T.).
Game times that were previously announced include the Cowboys'home opener on Saturday, Sept. 1 vs. Washington State, which is set to begin at 1:30 p.m. The Pokes will host Wofford on Saturday, Sept. 15 for a 2 p.m. kick off, and Mountain West Conference play will begin for the Cowboys on Saturday, Sept. 29 when they host Boise State for a game beginning at 5 p.m.
