Know Your Enemy: Wyoming

Can you believe it is already homecoming week?  The Spartans are set to play the Wyoming Cowboys this Saturday, and are 31-point favorites.

Here is some information about the Cowboys in this week’s Know Your Enemy installment.

Real quick: They almost beat Nebraska in Lincoln last year. Also, they beat Oregon the week after the Spartans suffered their first loss to them a couple weeks back. Just kidding. They actually lost to Oregon 48-14, but the Cowboys did come out of the first quarter with a 7-0 lead, so that is impressive.

Also notable is that they have two mascots, “Cowboy Joe” and “Pistol Pete.”

The point is, the Wyoming game will not be the same caliber of pushover as Jacksonville State and Eastern Michigan. Here are some more fun facts about MSU’s upcoming opponent:
