Game Notes

  • Saturday’s game is the 114th game of the Border Wars between Colorado State and Wyoming where the teams battle for the Bronze Boot each year.
  • The Rams will host Wyoming at home with fans for the first time since 2018. When the Rams won the Bronze Boot back from the Cowboys in 2020, it was without fans during the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • The margin of victory in the series is one. Colorado State does not count the first meeting in 1899, a 12–0 victory by Colorado Agricultural College, as the game was ultimately forfeited.
  • Every year since 1968, the winner of the Border War has been awarded the Bronze Boot, the boot worn in the Vietnam War by Capt. Dan J. Romero was part of the Colorado State ROTC from 1967-1969. The boot was restored for the first time in its history ahead of the 2021 season.
  • The frontier war is the longest continuous hostilities west of the Mississippi River. Since adding the Bronze Boot to the rivalry game, the Cowboys have held a 29-25 advantage in the series. However, the Rams are 16-13 since the Sonny Lubick era began in 1993.
  • Colorado State, for a variety of reasons, including injuries and roster moves, entered the border battle game 54 potential scholarship players Who could contribute before accounting for non-season-ending injuries that could limit players for a game or two.
  • In fact, as a result of the transition, only Six players Added more than 200 offensive or defensive snaps during the 2021 season for Colorado State on the 2022 roster.
