The Mountain West Conference preseason rankings are available, and guess what the Wyoming Cowboys are ranked #2 in the Mountain Division. Many fans are excited for a big season for the Pokes. All signs point to the 2020 season going Coach Bohl and his cowboys favor.
“The Cowboys have something for the first time under Coach Bohl, they have depth finally, and Craig Bohl is thinking its time to build that. 7220 Sports.Com’s, Cody Tucker said.”
The Wyoming Cowboys capped off their 2019 season with a big win down in Tucson over Georgia State. With a couple of significant departures to the offensive and defensive sides of the ball. The Wyoming Faithful may wonder who's going to fill those shoes. Cody Tucker from Seventy-two, Twenty Sports.com says that 2020 Cowboys are still in a prime position to win the Mountain West conference and make some noise around the country.
“This Defense of the line could be the best in the mountain west. It could be one of the best in the country anchored by a couple of good pass rushers on the outsides by Garrett Crawl and Solomon Byrd. I don’t see this defense taking any major steps back. When you have a good defensive line that can get after the quarterback and stop the run, that element will only help an inexperienced secondary. 7220 Sports.Com’s, Cody Tucker said.”
Last Year the Pokes finished 4-4 in the Mountain Division They went a perfect 6-0 at Jonah Field at War Memorial Stadium, This year the Cowboys can avenge their losses from 2019 as they host their biggest Mountain West games against Boise State, San Diego State, Air Force.
