This weekend, War Memorial Stadium in Laramie will host its first conference championship since opening in 1950.

It will also be the first time the Pokes have played for a conference title since losing the inaugural WAC Championship game to BYU in 1996.

A win this weekend would give the Pokes their first ever Mountain West Conference championship and their first conference title since finishing in a three-way tie for the WAC title in 1993.

Amazingly, Saturday also marks the first time the Wyoming Cowboys have hosted a home football game in the month of December since 1902.

A lot has changed in 114 years.

The date was Saturday, December 13, 1902. The University of Wyoming, under head coach William McMurray, defeated Cheyenne High School 18-0 to finish the season with a record of 1-0.
