Rankings from AP Poll

The 2004 Wyoming Cowboys football team represented the University of Wyoming in the 2004 NCAA Division I-A football season. The Cowboys offense scored 318 points while the defense allowed 297 points. Led by head coach Joe Glenn, the Cowboys competed in the Las Vegas Bowl.

Pre-Season[edit]

During the off season, War Memorial Stadium was upgraded with new railings installed in certain areas as well as more handicap accessible.[1]

The big concern coming into Spring Training was the lack of depth on defense, a young and inexperienced offensive line and a poor running game. 13 Starters and 38 lettermen returned.[2]

Fall practice began on August 11, 2004.[3] The Cowboys participated in two inter squad scrimmages. The first one was held August 21 and the second one was 5 days later on the 26th.[4]

Players[edit]

Quarterbacks[edit]

Corey Bramlet replaced his older brother, Casey, who graduate the previous season.
