PROVO, Utah – Cosmo the Cougar, BYU’s mascot, parachuted into LaVell Edwards Stadium prior to kickoff between the Cougars and Wyoming Cowboys.

The No. 19 Cougars hosted the Cowboys at LaVell Edwards Stadium on Saturday, September 24.

Before the contest began, the talented mascot sailed down from the sky with a parachute on his back. Cosmo landed on the turf and hyped up the crowd before kickoff between the old conference foes.

The parachuting Cougar is well known for his stunts during BYU athletic events. You can add Saturday’s extreme sport showing to his list of impressive feats.

BYU’s game against Wyoming is broadcast on ESPN2 and KSL NewsRadio.

Wyoming vs. BYU

It’s the first meeting between these two schools since the 2016 Poinsettia Bowl in San Diego. These two programs were once Mountain West and WAC rivals. They used to play on an annual basis, with the last regular season meeting taking place in 2010.

Outside of Utah and Utah State, BYU has never played a team more than Wyoming. BYU’s first win as a program came against Wyoming back in 1922. There’s a history between the two schools. Anyone around for those LaVell Edwards/Paul Roach games or the 1996 WAC Championship would tell you BYU/Wyoming used to be something back in the day.

Wyoming hasn’t won in Provo since 1987. BYU has won the last eight meetings in the series, with Wyoming’s last victory coming in 2003 against a BYU team that finished 4-8.

Chris Brooks probably deserves to be the MVP after having rushed the ball for 164 yards on 23 carries, but I think we saw the value of Hall after he left the game with an injury.
