The BYU Cougars are set for their final regular season road trip as they head to Colorado and Wyoming to take Western Conference foes Colorado State University and the University of Wyoming.
The Cougars will play CSU Thursday night at 7pm while the tilt with the Wyoming Cowboys is set for 1pm on Saturday in Laramie.
BYU battered the Rams and Cowboys last year by a combined score of 228-3 but BYU's head coach David Smyth says this is no time to lose focus.
"Being on the road against two conference teams in the span of 3 days can be tricky," Smyth said, "So we need to ensure we stay focused and work on improving from last week's game to ensure we come out of these two game not only in the wins but also so we can come out of there in one piece health-wise."
The Cougars have taken a full squad to Colorado and Wyoming and will likely spread the work load among a variety of players who will be given the opportunity to wear the blue and white.
Cougar prop Mikey Su'a says it'll be important in games like these to have everyone on the same page.
"We get used to playing with certain players," Su'a said, "And this weekend will be good for us to work on other combinations. And that will mean better communication."
Colorado State currently sits at 0-2 in conference play with losses to a largely reserve-side University of Utah team 49-19 and to Colorado University by the score of 43-20.
The 0-2 start puts the Rams currently in last place in the Western Conference.
Wyoming started league play just last week with a 44-19 loss to Arizona State in Tempe to put the Cowboys at 0-1 on their short conference season.
