Tentatively plans to start the season on Oct. 2 at BYU, but its game with Southern Utah could be rescheduled.
As expected, fall practice for Wyoming has been pushed back. It was supposed to start Friday; it will now start Tuesday instead. So, not a big delay.— Michael Katz (@MichaelLKatz) August 6, 2020
