List of Wyoming Cowboys bowl games

American football on the field with spectators in the stands.
Wyoming defeated UCLA in the 2004 Las Vegas Bowl to end their six bowl game losing streak.[1]

The Wyoming Cowboys college football team competes as part of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS), representing the University of Wyoming in the Mountain West Conference (MW). Since the establishment of the team in 1892, Wyoming has appeared in 13 bowl games.[2] The latest bowl occurred on December 17, 2011, when Wyoming lost to Temple 37–15 in the 2011 New Mexico Bowl.[3] The loss in that game brought the Cowboys' overall bowl record to six wins and seven losses (6–7).[2][3]
