It’s all about the boot. Colorado State holds a 58-49 advantage in the all-time series against Wyoming. After losing five of the last six games to their rival from the north though, each time having to watch the Cowboys celebrate with the Bronze Boot, the Rams are eager for an opportunity at redemption. In a game where there is so much passion on both sides, where bragging rights for the next year are on the line for the respective communities, there is absolutely nothing sweeter than victory. Of course, on the opposite end of the spectrum, losing the annual rivalry game feels like the lowest of the lows, especially if you don’t perform particularly well.  Wyoming football player Easton Gibbs…

Same game, different sides. Adam Pilapil may be in his first year as Colorado State’s linebackers coach but he knows more than most what it’s like to participate in one of college football’s most special rivalries. A Wyoming linebacker from 2015-18 and a defensive quality control assistant for the Cowboys in 2019, Pilapil has a half decade’s worth of experience in this heated matchup between local foes.

LAS VEGAS — When Colorado State and Wyoming play there is never any love lost between the two sides. If you wear CSU colors north of the state line, there is a good chance that a burly individual wearing a Pokes shirt will remind you that despite trailing in the all-time series, the Cowboys have a winning record against the Rams since the introduction of the Bronze Boot. That is if they don’t curse you out, or pour a beer on your head. (Yes, these things all actually happened.) With a rivalry that predates the assembly line, it makes sense that there is occasionally a bit of animosity. When you play as often as the Rams and Cowboys do, with bragging…
