Wyoming to Play Fresno State in New Mexico Bowl

LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) - First-year head coach Dave Christensen has Wyoming in a bowl game. The Cowboys will play Fresno State in the New Mexico Bowl on December 19th in Albuquerque, N.M., in a match-up of teams from the Mountain West Conference and the Western Athletic Conference. Christensen says the team is excited to be playing in the post-season.

Wyoming, 6-6 overall, finished fifth in the Mountain West Conference this season. The Cowboys were last eligible for a bowl in 2006, but didn't receive an invitation. The last time Wyoming went to a bowl was the Las Vegas Bowl in 2004.

Fresno State is 8-4 overall, and finished third in the Western Athletic Conference. The two teams have met six times, with each team winning three times. The squads have never met at a neutral site.

The game is being televised on ESPN and ESPN-HD.
