CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - As College football fans everywhere await the verdict on their favorite schools, the Power 5 conferences outlined how their schedules will look playing only in conference games.

The Mountain West conference is rumored to be aligned with the rival Conference USA, in which the University of Wyoming faces off with Tulsa yearly.

With the Pac-12 Conference announcing its conference only schedule, the Cowboys lost a huge home game against the University of Utah. Around the landscape of restarting sports, there’s been the inevitable of positive tests for COVID-19.

“So far so good for Wyoming, still no positive tests on the team. However, there are only players on campus right now. What about when the rest of the students show up? That’s a whole new ball game when kids are coming from around the world, back into Laramie for School.

According to Laramie’s sources, a decision can come down at any moment on the fate of the 2020 football season.

An article published by the tribune eagle highlighting the University of Wyoming Athletic director stated if there is no football, it could cost the School roughly 10.5 million dollars in revenue.

“Without a team like hated Utah coming into War Memorial Stadium, the Cowboys may not have the same opportunity for multiple sellouts in 2020.” If Mountain West officials, declare Universities can have up 20% fans capacity tail-gating and the game day experience the School provides may be in jeopardy.

Wyomingites are hopeful there will be football in Laramie at the university this year, so the million-dollar question is, how does Coach Bohl keep his players on an even Kiel?

“That’s a big question. I think Coach is trying to keep things as normal humanly possible. I think Bohl knows this is the best team he’s had in Laramie since he’s been here, and of course, the Cowboys have the best home schedule maybe in the history of the School.”

According to Cody Tucker from 7220Sports.com, word from the Mountain West Conference may come as early as Wednesday this week.
