Fans — both from Wyoming and Colorado State — respond to a question posted on this blog on their favorite Border War football memories.
The 106th Border War will be played at 5 p.m. Saturday at Hughes Stadium in Fort Collins.
–Bramlet to Floyd on a 50-yard touchdown pass to seal the win in 2003. Pokes were struggling under first-year head coach Joe Glenn, but wins against CSU and BYU that year at home provided a huge lift for the fans. —Mark Krug
–The first one I thought of was a blowout in what was a down year for both teams, 44-0 Cowboys in 2010. The most satisfying end to a 3-9 season that I think you could have. Just felt great after that game. — Adam
–Favorite was “The Drive” Wallwork/Harris in 1996. Cold as hell! I just remember that once we punched in the final touchdown by RB Marques Brigham and how excited everyone was. The cold didn’t matter then. 25-24 POKES! — Todd
–I agree! it was at CSU and CSU wanted nothing more than to be a spoiler to the Pokes great season. What a way to come through in the clutch and in terrible weather. It was such an in-justice that a Pokes team that finished 10-2 and a top 20 ranking did not get invited to a bowl game. — A. Usher
–My favorite Border War was (Wyoming QB) Casey Bramlet vs. (Colorado State QB) Bradlee Van Pelt. I was at the game as a freshman in high school and was there for the Wyoming high school marching band doing the half time show to get ready for the Rose Bowl parade. Wyoming was down all game and it started to blizzard and we came back and won 35-28 I believe (in 2003). Best time of my life. — Ryan
Some answers to the question via Twitter:
–1996 at CSU, Wyoming 25, CSU 24. — @WYOTroll
–Each year is my favorite being paraded around the stadium and shown off. — @thebronzeboot
–1991. I forget the score but it was a great game on a georgous Saturday afternoon in Fort Collins … and we won. — @GoRamsGo Note: The 1991 game was played in Laramie and UW won 35-28. In 1990, UW lost at CSU 18-7 but it snowed the night before the game and the weather wasn’t that great. The 1992 game also was at CSU and the Cowboys lost 31-14.
–(Quarterback) Anthony Hill leading a massive comeback win in 1994 at Hughes Stadium (35-24 CSU) with 28 unanswered points. — @CSURamsMan
