 The Wyoming Cowboys will be seeking their eighth win of the season when they travel to San Jose State to face the Spartans this Saturday for the regular-season finale for both teams.  The game is scheduled to kick off at 3 p.m., Mountain Time (2 p.m., Pacific Time) from Citizens Equity First Credit Union Stadium in San Jose. 

The Cowboys (7-4 overall and 5-2 in the Mountain West) are trying to match their win total of last season with a victory.  A year ago, the Cowboys posted an 8-6 overall record and a 6-2 conference mark.  

Wyoming will be facing a San Jose State team (1-11 overall, 0-7 in the Mountain West), who has won each of the last two meetings between the two schools.  The Spartans won by a touchdown over the Cowboys in San Jose in 2013 (51-44) and in Laramie in 2014 (27-20 in 1 overtime).

 The Pokes and Spartans will be playing for the 10th time this week.  Wyoming leads the overall series 6-3 and is 4-1 in games played at San Jose State.

In the history of Cowboy football, 20 teams have won eight games in a season.  The last time Wyoming won eight games in back-to-back seasons was 1997 and ‘98.

Since joining the Mountain West Conference in 1999, the Cowboys posted their best conference record of 6-2 in 2016.  With a win Saturday, the Pokes could match that 6-2 record of a year ago.
