— WYOMING-DORM SPACE — University of Wyoming officials are predicting that if the school's enrollment keeps growing, it will run out of dorm space by 2019. University President Laurie Nichols said Thursday that there will be 300 more students at the university this school year.
— WYOMING WILDFIRES — Firefighters are making good progress on a wildfire burning south of Rock Springs in southwest Wyoming. On Thursday, firefighters increase containment of the fire burning on federal, state and private land to 72 percent.
— HEMP OILS-JACKSON STORES — Some hemp oil products have been pulled from the shelves at Jackson stores following visits by police. The Jackson Hole News and Guide reports Jackson Whole Grocer stopped selling the products after authorities told the store it could face charges.
LARAMIE — Trying to find a weakness on Wyoming's defense might be a fool's errand. The Cowboys led the nation in takeaways last season and led the Mountain West in yards per play, points per game and opposing touchdowns allowed. But if you had to pick, cornerback might be the spot you'd settle on. None of the Cowboys' starting corners from last season are listed at that position this year, as Rico Gafford and Robert Priester graduated and Tyler Hall moved to nickel back.
