Wyoming Cowboys Football

November 28, 2016

The University of Wyoming (UW) Cowboys football team has had quite a season! McGee, Hearne & Paiz, LLP (MHP) employees have been extremely supportive of the Cowboys this season and every season.

As the days become shorter and the leaves begin to fall, it can only mean one thing: FOOTBALL!!! No matter what happened the previous season, the prospect of greatness in the coming season brings UW fans out en masse to cheer on their team. Every football season, MHP purchases a pair of season tickets that are raffled off to employees. Interested employees simply submit their name and winners are drawn for each home game.  Most everyone wants in on the drawing, meaning almost no one gives up the tickets when their name is drawn. 

Because the Pokes are "our team", MHP sponsors "jeans day" if you wear your Wyoming Cowboys apparel on the Fridays before games. And you can bet that this week will be no different!

The Cowboys finished 2–10, with a 2–6 record in Mountain West play, finishing last in their division in 2015. In true underdog spirit, the Pokes have made a comeback and the 2016 season has been AMAZING! The Cowboys are 8-4 for the season, with a 6-2 record in Mountain West play thereby finishing 1st in the Mountain West Conference! (The UW Cowboys, New Mexico Lobos and Boise State Broncos all finished tied for the top of the division at 6-2, but the Cowboys are the division champions due to a better overall record against all other Mountain West teams.)  Since entering the Mountain West Conference in 1999, this is the first time that they will play for the championship in this conference. The Cowboys will host the Mountain West Championship game against the San Diego State Aztecs on Saturday, December 3rd at War Memorial Stadium! The Cowboys played the Aztecs during the regular season and won the close battle 34-33. 

You can bet that all of us at MHP will be wearing our brown and gold in support of the Cowboys!
