The Wyoming Cowboys will drop the Idaho Vandals from their 2018 football schedule, the Star-Tribune has reported.
“Wyoming will not travel to the University of Idaho,” Idaho athletics director Rob Spear told the Star-Tribune. “So we will not have a home game against Wyoming.”
Wyoming was set to travel to take on Idaho at the Kibbie Dome in Moscow on Sept. 15, 2018. The game is part of a home-and-home series that includes a game in Laramie on Sept. 14, 2019.
According to the Star-Tribune, Spear stated that the 2019 game will “probably” still be played. That would likely come after an adjustment to the contract.
Earlier this year, the Sun Belt Conference announced that it was not renewing the football membership of Idaho and New Mexico State following the 2017 season.
Idaho later announced that they will be dropping down to the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) in 2018. As a result, their future football schedules will change significantly as they have several contracts with FBS teams.
Wyoming was the only non-conference FBS home game scheduled for Idaho in 2018. The Vandals are also slated to visit Fresno State, Northern Illinois, and Florida.
The Cowboys now have one spot to fill on their 2018 non-conference schedule. Wyoming is set to host Washington State to open the season and later travels to Missouri and hosts Wofford.
