The 2018 college football season is nearly here for the Wyoming Cowboys, who open up at New Mexico State Saturday night at 8 p.m.

Fifth-year head coach Craig Bohl addressed the media earlier this week ahead of the Pokes first game. Coach Bohl is happy about starting early and with the national exposure, his program will receive. He talked about his squad, including the new starting QB, new running back, a young offensive line and a veteran defense. Bohl also discussed their opponent, the Aggies, a veteran team with a veteran coach in the video above.

Wyoming plays New Mexico State for just the second time in school history. The previous match-up was Sept. 19, 1953, a 47-0 Cowboy victory in Laramie. This game is in Las Cruces, NM at 8 p.m. You can watch it on ESPN2.
