LARAMIE — Wyoming has finalized its football schedule for the 2019 season, which includes a pair of games against teams that finished last season ranked in the top 25.
The Cowboys’ non-conference slate is highlighted by a season-opening matchup Aug. 31 against SEC foe Missouri, which will be making its first-ever trip to War Memorial Stadium. The Tigers, who defeated Wyoming 40-13 last season, finished the season at No. 23 in the final College Football Playoff rankings.

Wyoming will also host Idaho (Sept. 14) and travel to Tulsa (Sept. 21) and Texas State (Sept. 7) in the non-conference before opening Mountain West play at home against UNLV on Sept. 28.
