If true, WYO's 2021 non-conference schedule includes Montana State, No. Illinois, Ball State and....... UCONN? :?

Saw this coming years ago. I knew Wyoming would never play at Clemson when the contract was first announced in the early 2010s I believe.

Clemson wasn't CLEMSON back then. They were just an average ACC program. No one could have predicted they would become the monster they are now.

While we are bummed as fans because I was really looking forward to being on a National network against a powerhouse, this is great news for the team and I am sure Bohl and Burman were thrilled. Going to Clemson currently is the definition of a body bag game. So not only does Wyoming get out of the game, it gets money for doing so.

To be the best you gotta play the best! Although a long shot to win I still would have loved to see this game happen. Burman has done a great job with scheduling, we have to give him credit for that. Mizzou, Texas, Utah. Wyo will still get some opportunities to play and hopefully win against quality P5 opponents.

That’s a nice payout for Wyoming. Plus now they can schedule another “body bag” game and get more money. Georgia cancelled the game with SJSU in 2021 in order to play Clemson and has to pay $1.8 million. SJSU announced a game with USC today to replace it and will probably get over $1 Million to play that game as well. Wyoming should do the same thing.

Wyoming is going to UConn instead of Clemson. If that game were this year, UW would probably be favored. So, no body bag.

Let's hope the team doesn't think the same way you do. As a player I always wanted a chance to play the best competition. I doubt Clemson was scared but you never know, if everything went perfect you'd like to think an upset is possible.
