Wyoming and Montana State Announce Future Football Game in 2021
Laramie, Wyo. (March 7, 2017) -- The University of Wyoming and Montana State University announced on Tuesday a future football game between the two schools to be played in Laramie, Wyo., on Sept. 4, 2021. It will be the 2021 season opener for the Cowboys, and will mark the first time the Cowboys and Bobcats will play in football since 2003.
The contract with Montana State is for a single game and completes Wyoming’s 2021 non-conference football schedule. The other three non-conference games that have been previously announced on UW’s 2021 schedule include two games versus Mid-American Conference schools in Northern Illinois on the road on Sept. 11 and Ball State in Laramie on Sept. 18. The Cowboys will conclude their 2021 non-conference schedule on the road at 2017 College Football Playoff National Champion Clemson on Sept. 25.
Wyoming and Montana State have met 19 previous times, with the Cowboys holding a 13-6 advantage in the series. UW and MSU have played only three times since 1950, and those last three meetings have all been won by Wyoming in Laramie (61-13 in 1950, 17-9 in 1998 and 21-10 in 2003). The Pokes have won the last eight meetings in the series, dating back to the 1934 season. Montana State won six of the first 11 meetings in the series between 1919 and 1933.
