BYU and Wyoming may renew a long-storied series

Looks like another old MWC/WAC rival is willing to schedule the BYU Football team again.

According to a report from Robert Gagliardi of Wyosports.net, BYU and Wyoming “have been in talks about the series for weeks, but nothing has been finalized.” Gagliardi is reporting that the schools are discussing a possible home-and-home series.

Wyoming’s schedule is locked up through the 2021 season, so unless the Cowboys shift around some games, the earliest the two schools could meet would be 2022. BYU currently has 7 games scheduled for the 2022 season, with 4 of them versus Power 5 schools and a fifth game versus Boise State.

BYU and Wyoming have not scheduled each other since BYU left the Mountain West in 2011, with the teams’ lone game since then coming in the 2016 Poinsettia Bowl.

Of the current 11 MWC football teams, BYU has not scheduled games versus four of them since leaving the conference Air Force, Colorado State, New Mexico and Wyoming. BYU played San Diego in the Poinsettia bowl, and has a home-and-home series scheduled with the Aztecs for the 2019-2020 seasons.

A home-and-home series versus Wyoming would signal that some of the original MWC/WAC teams are beginning to hold less ill well towards the Cougars after BYU left the MWC to go independent.
