Location: Laramie, WY
Coach: Craig Bohl (28-35 @ Wyo., 132-67 overall), 6th Season at Wyoming
Stadium: War Memorial Stadium (Capacity: 29,181)

CSJ Projections:
8th: Mountain West (5th: Mountain Division)
1st: Wyoming

2018 in a Sentence: After a 2-6 beginning against a cruel schedule, the Cowboys made a quarterback alteration and recovered its identity, encouraging for four consecutive wins to coating bowl eligle at 6-6 (though they were one of four elgible teams to not get  a bid).

Biggest Shoes to Fill: S Marcus Epps and S Andrew Wingard were the firm military unit in the Cowboy alternate that will be missed.  The duo concerted for 779 tackles, 44.5 TFL, 30 pass break-ups and 19 interceptions in their four years in Laramie.  Epps was a 6th circular bill of exchange pick of the NFL’s Minnesota Vikings, piece Wingard was autographed as an unbill of exchangeed collegial free causal agent by the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Key Player: QB Sean Chambers or Tyler Vander Waal will be the beginning er for the Cowboys.  True freshman Chambers replaced redshirt freshman Vander Waal mid-way last and the team beginning ed to win but not with the ephemeral game but rather a smashmouth style running attack.  While it might seem Chambers would get the node, he only threw 23 passes in his three full games. Vander Waal passed for 1,310 yards to go along with five touchdown passes and four interceptions.  Whichever quarterback gets the nod, they likely will continue to lead a strong running attach with sophomore RB Xazavian Valladay, who must carry the load more with MW leading rusher Nico Evans lost to graduation.

Fearless Prediction: The Cowboys are still going to be awfully young this year, and the rest MWC is still going to be awfully good.  Wyoming is primed to be a very good team in 2020 but it might take some ups and downs this year.  Still, there is enough talent on this team to get to the six-win mark and get a bowl bid.
