UW FOOTBALL - The Wyoming football team will have to wait until Sunday afternoon to find out where they will be trying on bowling shoes. Sunday is the day bowl invitations will be announced. Yesterday New Mexico Bowl chairman Jeff Siembieda says he's not sure if it will be Wyoming or Air Force going to his bowl.
The New Mexico Bowl has an agreement with the Mountain West and WAC conferences to produce the teams for that game, which is in Albuquerque. It's also the first bowl game on the schedule of the 34 total, and will be played Saturday afternoon December 19th at 2:30.
Siembeida says the New Mexico Bowl's choices are either Wyoming or the Academy. Wyoming Athletic Director Tom Burman says as of today, the Cowboys are making plans for a trip to Albuquerque.
Other bowl games are still in play for the Pokes, including the Armed Forces Bowl in Fort Worth, Texas and the Humanitarian Bowl in Boise, Idaho, but there are about seven different scenarios to be worked out by Sunday to really find out where they will be, so don't buy your game tickets yet.
