Laramie, WY – The University of Wyoming has finalized their 2011 football schedule by adding a home game against FCS opponent the Texas State Bobcats September 10, 2011 in Laramie, WY.
The Cowboys needed to add another game to their schedule after all of the changes within the Mountain West Conference.
Texas State will be the second FCS opponent on The Pokes schedule for 2011; they will play Weber State to open the season on September 3, 2011. Texas State is in the process of transitioning to the FBS as they will become a member of the Western Athletic Conference in 2012-2013.
"I'm very happy that we were able to complete our 2011 schedule so quickly, and am thrilled that we were able to fill it with another home game," said University of Wyoming Athletics Director Tom Burman.
The home-and-home deal between Wyoming and Texas State the Cowboys will travel to San Marcos, TX on September 28, 2013 to play the Bobcats.
With two FCS opponents on their 2011 schedule Wyoming will have to win seven games to become bowl eligible.
