Wyoming's football game against Louisiana next season is official.

The school has announced a home-and-home series with Louisiana that will begin with a matchup on Sept. 12, 2020 in Lafayette, Louisiana. The Ragin' Cajuns will make the return trip to Laramie in 2026.

UW athletic director Tom Burman told the Star-Tribune last week the schools were working to finalize a contract that would help round out Wyoming's non-conferenc schedule next season. The Cowboys were originally scheduled to play Big 12 member Texas Tech next season, but that game has been postponed until the 2028 season.

Wyoming and Louisiana (formerly Louisiana-Lafayette) have met just once in their history with the Cowboys notching a 28-15 win on Sept. 14, 1991. Louisiana won the Sun Belt West Division title last season to earn a spot in the first-ever Sun Belt championship game.

Wyoming will also host Pac-12 member Utah and Weber State and travel to Ball State in the non-conference next season.
