Urban Meyer from Utah might have already clinched conference Coach of the Year honors in the minds of many, but Joe Glenn is closing hard. The first-year Wyoming coach has his team 4-5 overall, 2-2 in conference and coming off an impressive victory against CSU. The Cowboys have this week off before ending with games at Utah and home to New Mexico and UNLV.

"Well, my comments back in the summer were that there would be a dogfight for the championship," said Glenn. "In my way of thinking, five teams still have a legitimate chance for at least a tie for (the title). The win over Colorado State was huge for us. We also have one over BYU. Those are two rivals for us, or at least I've been told so in my time here."

  • The last time Wyoming played three home games in Laramie during November: 1942. "We're glad to be home, but it's going to be very hard on our fans and the teams coming in here," said Glenn. "It makes it awful tough in a rural state like Wyoming and with the weather to get into Laramie. No question, it's an advantage for us. It just makes things hard on Wyoming people."
