Wyoming-Nebraska 6-Man Shootout is Thursday [AUDIO]
The Wyoming-Nebraska 6-man Shootout will be in Harrison, NE on Thursday with kick-off at 5 p.m.
The game was originally scheduled for June 6, 2020, in Chadron, NE. It was pushed back to July 24 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and then adjusted to July 23 and moved to Harrison’s Sioux County High School. It’s a 6-man field, and the surface is grass.
There will be limited attendance due to coronavirus restrictions but as Wyoming head coach Jack Cobb told WyoPreps, they’re just happy to be playing.
