You see it on business signs and billboards. It’s on the state’s license plate. It’s even emblazoned on trash cans in some towns across Wyoming.
Steamboat, the bucking horse and rider that has served as the symbol of Cowboy athletics since the 1920s, is undoubtedly the greatest source of pride in a place where the people’s love for the state’s only university is unparalleled.
And there’s no better time to celebrate that pride than at the University of Wyoming’s annual Homecoming.
“This is the West - Forever Brown and Gold” is the theme of the university’s 91st Homecoming celebration, which includes three days of festivities highlighted by the Cowboys’ football game against New Mexico on Jonah Field at War Memorial Stadium.
