Utah State and Wyoming will no longer play on Thursday night due to an increase in COVID-19 cases in the Utah State program.

The game was scheduled to kickoff at 9:00 PM EST on CBSN on Thursday night in Laramie and Wyoming was s 20.5 favorite.
The Mountain West started their fall football season on October 24th and because of the late start, there was no chances for teams to reschedule games or have any bye weeks. Utah State was looking for their first win of the season and Wyoming was trying to get back on track against Air Force last week, but for the second straight week the Cowboys had a game canceled.
In total the Mountain West has canceled three games this season and there will inevitably be more games canceled as programs work through the problems that COVID-19 presents. The Aggies are 0-4 and Cowboys are 1-2. Boise State, San Jose State, and Nevada are the only teams that are still undefeated in conference play.
