Before Novacek became a star in the NFL, he was a star at the University of Wyoming in Laramie. Such a star, that in 1993 he was in the inaugural UW Athletics Hall of Fame, then in 2008 the College Football Hall of Fame and in 2014 the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame.

So, yes, Jay Novacek is a big deal and an important part of Wyoming Football's history.
