The Wyoming Cowboys have added future football games against Texas State, Tulsa, Gardner-Webb, and Wofford, the Casper Star-Tribune has reported.

Wyoming will play a home-and-home series with the Texas State Bobcats in 2017 and 2019. In the first game of the series, Wyoming will host Texas State at War Memorial Stadium in Laramie on Sept. 30, 2017. The Cowboys will then travel to face the Bobcats at Bobcat Stadium in San Marcos on Sept. 7, 2019.

The Cowboys and the Bobcats previously played a home-and-home series in 2011 and 2013. Wyoming won the first contest 45-10 in Laramie, and Texas State took the second game 42-21 in San Marcos.
