LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming completed the majority of its game preparations before traveling to Albuquerque on Wednesday for the New Mexico Bowl, where the Cowboys will face Temple, coach Dave Christensen said.
“We’re focused in and ready to go,” Christensen said, adding that he was pleased with the four practices held in Laramie since last week.
The New Mexico Bowl is noon Saturday at University Stadium. It’s Wyoming’s second New Mexico Bowl appearance in three years. The Cowboys beat Fresno State 35-28 in double OT  in 2009.
Both teams enter with 8-4 records, and Wyoming is looking for its first nine-win season since 1996.
Freshman quarterback Brett Smith said he’s been watching a lot of film on the Temple defense over the last week.
“It’s been a grind the last couple of weeks, just practicing and preparing for these guys,” Smith said. “I want to go in overprepared rather than underprepared.”
Smith said he’s heard from juniors and seniors on the team about the bowl festivities leading up to the game. Activities include team dinners, bowling, trivia games, pep rallies. Smith noted he planned to get in some wardrobe shopping as well.
“But obviously our No. 1 goal is to win,” he said.
