For a second straight year the Wyoming Cowboys will get a home game in the Mountain West-Missouri Valley Challenge Series.

The two conferences announced the pairings for 2017 Wednesday, and the Pokes will host the Drake Bulldogs on Saturday, Dec. 2 in Laramie. The game time will be announced at a later date.

Wyoming is 3-1 all-time against Drake. The most recent meeting was Jan. 2, 1989, which resulted in a 97-85 Cowboys victory. The series dates back to 1960.

The Cowboys are coming off a 23-15 season that saw them win the CBI Championship. The Bulldogs went 7-24 last season and that included a 5-13 mark in the Missouri Valley Conference. They will have a new coach next season in Niko Medved.

The MW/MVC Challenge Series has ten teams from each league squaring off in head-to-head competition. Each conference hosts five games. Last season, the series was split, 5-5. The MW has a 3-1-2 mark in the history of the series and holds an overall 33-22 record in games played in the challenge.
