Wyoming earned hosting rights based upon its higher composite computer average. It’s the first conference championship game appearance for UW since the inaugural Western Athletic Conference title game in 1996. San Diego State won the 2015 MW Championship with a victory over Air Force, 27-24, last December.

Both teams finished 6-2 in league play. The Cowboys are 8-4 on the season, while the Aztecs are 9-3.

Cowboys Lose Regular Season Finale

Tickets go on sale at noon on Sunday, Nov. 27 and are available through the University of Wyoming Athletics Ticket Office. You can visit or stop by the ticket office in-person, open noon-to-6 p.m. Sunday or by calling 307-766-7220.

Ticket prices range from $21 to $38 for adults. Youth tickets are $17. Since the Championship is operated by the Mountain West, parking must be purchased. Cowboy Joe Club members can purchase in their regular-season designated lots for $15 by Friday, Dec. 2. Non-members can buy a parking pass in select lots for $20. A limited number of game day passes will be available for $20.

The University of Wyoming will also host a men’s basketball game against Northern Iowa Saturday, Dec. 3. The start time for the game was already moved to 1 p.m. in an effort to avoid a conflict with MW Championship football game.
