Wyoming Pokes Set To Take On Cal Golden Bears In 2028
The last time Wyoming met Cal on the field was 1990 for the Copper Bowl, California took the victory with a 17-15 score, according to California Golden Blogs.
Their next meeting will take place on September 2nd, 2028 in California Memorial Stadium. Then the following year, Cal will make their way to War Memorial Stadium on September 8th, 2029.
When these two met in 1990 it was a tough, defensive game with a scoreless first quarter. The second quarter wasn't much better. Cal threw for one touchdown and Wyoming kicked a 3-point field goal. The score at halftime was 7-3 Cal.
The start of the second-half lead to Cal kicking a 3-point field goal and in the fourth quarter, they scored a touchdown making the game 17-3 Cal. A little resurgence and a punt return for a touchdown brought the Pokes back to within two points, but they just couldn't overcome the deficit.
That win in 1990 was huge for Cal. It was their first bowl win since their 1938 appearance in the Rose Bowl. Hopefully, in 2028 the Pokes come off the field victorious.
