BYU Football: Five things to know about Wyoming

An old rivalry is renewed at Old Town Square as the No. 19 BYU Cougars take on the up-and-coming Wyoming Cowboys. The Cougars are thrilled to be back home after a brutal loss at the hands of the No. 15 Oregon Ducks, but face a tough test against the 3-1 Pokes. Here are five things you need to know about the standoff with the Cowboys.

1. Back in the saddle

Wyoming is having a bit of a hot streak as they step into Provo, despite losing 10 key transfer portal employees this offseason. After a 6-38 loss to Illinois in Week Zero, the Cowboys have had three straight wins against Tulsa, Northern Colorado and the Air Force, with the latter of the three being particularly impressive. Running back Titus Swen rushed for 102 yards and a touchdown as Wyoming defeated the Falcons 3-0. Wyoming is already 3-1 year-over-year, though ESPN’s FPI predicts an aggregate win of just over five games for the entire season. In short, the pokes are way better than we expected.
