Cowboys schedule Illinois in 2022, release 2016 slate

Posted: Updated:

The University of Wyoming announced Wednesday a football date at Illinois on Sept. 17, 2022.

      It will be the first meeting in football between the two.  Illinois becomes the eighth Big Ten Conference member Wyoming will have faced. 

      Wyoming has previously played Iowa, Michigan State, Minnesota, Nebraska, Northwestern, Ohio State and Wisconsin.  They beat the Badgers in Madison, Wis., by a final of 21-12 in 1986. 

      Although the Cowboys have only one win over Big Ten schools, the Pokes have played a number of close games against the Big Ten.  Six were decided by 10 points or less and nine by 14 points or less.  Among Wyoming’s strong performances vs. the Big Ten teams are a 20-19 loss to Iowa in the 1987 Holiday Bowl, a 37-34 loss three years ago at Nebraska, a 13-10 loss at Nebraska in 1968 and a five-point loss at Northwestern in 1979.

      Prior to its 2022 trip to Illinois, Wyoming is scheduled to play at Nebraska on Sept. 10, 2016, and at Iowa on Sept. 2, 2017.

      The Cowboys also unveiled their full 2016 football slate on Wednesday.
