BYU Football: Five Things You Need to Know About Wyoming

An old rivalry is renewed in the old town square as the no. 19 BYU Cougars take on the upstart Wyoming Cowboys. The Cougars are thrilled to be back home after a brutal loss at the hands of world no. 15 Oregon Ducks, but face a tough test against the 3-1 Pokes. Here are five things to know about the matchup with the Cowboys.

1. Back in the saddle

Wyoming is on a roll as they come to Provo, despite losing 10 key contributors to the transfer portal this offseason. Coming off a 38-6 loss to Illinois in Week Zero, the Cowboys have posted three straight wins over Tulsa, Northern Colorado and Air Force, with the last of the three being particularly impressive. Running back Titus Swen rushed for 102 yards and a touchdown as Wyoming beat the Falcons 3-0. Wyoming is already 3-1 on the year despite ESPN’s FPI predicting a full-season win total of just over five games. In short, the Poke are much better than we expected.
