Head Coach: Dave Christiansen
Christiansen is in his 5th year as head coach of Wyoming. He was previously the offensive coordinator for Toledo and Missouri. He played football at the University of Washington himself before his coaching career. He's been a head coach for one bowl game, but undefeated nevertheless. Overall, he has a losing head coaching record, 25-29. Christiansen has led Wyoming to two winning seasons, and has started off in the right direction this season leading the cowboys to a 3-1 mark.
Conference: Mountain West
They were one of the original members of the Mountain West in 1999 and are the second smallest school next to Air Force. Their biggest conference rivals are Colorado State and Hawaii. Wyoming plays Colorado State for the Bronze Boot. This rivalry has been played every year but one for over a century. They play Hawaii for the Paniolo Trophy.
Stadium: War Memorial Stadium
Yes, the Cowboys are making the trip to San Marcos this Saturday, but it is definitely worth noting that Bobcats got off the hook on this one. The War Memorial Stadium is the highest elevated D1 stadium in the nation, at 6,900 ft above sea level. Mile High Stadium in Denver doesn't have anything on that. Some have even been quoted to say they'd rather lose at their home stadium than win in Wyoming.
Wyoming's program has an overall losing record at 486-520 and bowl record of 6-7. They have produced nearly 50 NFL draft picks since the 1950's. They've had one player inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame, Jay Novacek, TE from the mid 80's.
