The Colorado State–Wyoming football rivalry is an American college football rivalry between the Colorado State Rams football team of Colorado State University and Wyoming Cowboys football team of the University of Wyoming. The Bronze Boot is awarded to the winner of the game. This rivalry has evolved into one of the most bitter in college football. The teams have faced each other 104 times since the schools began playing in 1899. The rivalry is the longest for both schools.

Bronze Boot[edit]

In 1968, the ROTC detachments of the respective schools initiated the Bronze Boot, a traveling trophy awarded to the winner of the “Border War” each year. The boot was worn in the Vietnam War by Cpt. Dan J. Romero, an Adams State College graduate and Army ROTC instructor at CSU between 1967 and 1969. Each year leading up to the Colorado State–Wyoming game, the game ball is carried in a running shuttle relay by the ROTC detachment of the visiting team down US 287 to the Colorado–Wyoming border, where the home team's ROTC detachment receives it and runs the game ball to the stadium hosting the game. The trophy is guarded by the ROTC unit of the past year's winning school during the game.
