August 29, 2018

LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming and Brigham Young University have announced a two-game, home-and-home series, renewing a football rivalry that dates back to the 1920s.

The Cowboys will travel to Provo, Utah, on Sept. 24, 2022. Wyoming will host the Cougars on Sept. 28, 2024.

The Wyoming-BYU series began in the 1922 season.

The most recent meeting between the two old rivals came in the 2016 San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl. BYU pulled out a 24-21 win.

Through the years, Wyoming and BYU have been conference opponents in the Skyline, Western Athletic and Mountain West Conferences. They have played 78 previous times, which ranks as the third longest series for Wyoming versus any opponent.

The only longer series for the Cowboys are versus Colorado State, which stands at 109 meetings, and an 83-game series versus Utah.
