Wyoming Cowboys is the name given to the sports teams of the University of Wyoming. The women's teams use the name Cowgirls. The University is a member of the Mountain West Conference and competes in NCAA Division I, fielding 17 NCAA-sanctioned sports. Wyoming's wrestling team competes in the Western Wrestling Conference, as the Mountain West Conference does not sponsor the sport. The football helmets were chosen as the third best logo helmet (no letters) by Sports Illustrated's 10 Spot. On October 9, 2006, Tom Burman was named the University's athletic director.
Football began in 1893 at UW, and games were played against local high schools and Front Range colleges. War Memorial Stadium was built in 1950 with an original capacity of 20,000 fans. The stadium sits at 7,200 feet (2,200 m) above sea level, and is the highest Division I football stadium in the United States. Currently the stadium holds 30,514 fans. The Wyoming Cowboys rival is Colorado State. Wyoming and Colorado State meet annually in the Border War; the winner receives the Bronze Boot trophy. The boot was worn by a member of the Colorado State ROTC during the Viet Nam War. Wyoming beat Colorado State 42-0 in 2010 for the most lopsided outcome in the 102 games of the rivalry up to that point. The Cowboys are 6-6 in bowl games. In 2004, the Cowboy football team ended a 38-year bowl game victory drought by defeating the UCLA Bruins in the Las Vegas Bowl on December 23, 2004. UW's most recent bowl win came in 2009, defeating Fresno State, 28-35 in double overtime, in the New Mexico Bowl as Kelly Haggbberg got the winning tackle. Wyoming's Men's Basketball program has a rich tradition. In 2006, Street & Smith’s published its “Greatest College Basketball Programs of All-Time” and the University of Wyoming was ranked as the 42nd greatest program in the history of college basketball. Back in 1943, it defeated Georgetown University 46-34 to win the NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Championship.
