The Wyoming Cowboys will focus on maintaining their perfect record of 3-0 as they make a rare trip to the east coast Saturday to play the UConn Huskies, University of Wyoming (UW) Athletics announced Wednesday.

Cowboy head coach Craig Bohl has been reportedly emphasizing to his team since the start of the 2021 season that Wyoming needs to focus on going 1-0 each week, a feat that the team was able to accomplish yet again last week with their hard-won victory over Ball State.

So far, the 2021 Wyoming Cowboys have matched the previous best start by a Bohl coached team at Wyoming, which took place in 2019 where Wyoming went 3-0 early in the season and went to post an 8-5 season, including a championship in the NOVA Home Loans Arizona Bowl, per UW Athletics.

This week’s trip, per the release, marks the longest trip for the Wyoming Cowboys this season as the team travels to East Hartford, 27 miles west of Storrs, Connecticut, where UConn plays their home games.
