THE BORDER WAR football series between Colorado State and Wyoming is defined by its longevity, proximity and one of the more unique traveling trophies in sports. The universities, separated by only 65 miles, have battled on the gridiron in three centuries for the iconic Bronze Boot, which was an actual combat boot worn by a military member in Vietnam. This book covers the history of the rivalry, from its controversial beginning in 1899 through the snowy battle for the boot in 2017. The Border War combatants agree to disagree on the all-time series ledger, but both sides have enjoyed their share of legendary coaches, players and victories over the decades. The Border War classics - from the Bounce Pass, to the Brawl, to the Drive - are chronicled in this must own book for all fans of the Rams, Cowboys and college football history.
