Tad Boyle took his Northern Colorado team to Wyoming last year and the first-year Colorado coach will be headed back to the Cowboy State once again.

Colorado and Wyoming are set to renew a men's basketball series that began in 1908, the University of Wyoming announced on Tuesday.

The Buffs and Cowboys agreed to a four-game series that will start next season in Boulder and include two home games over the next four years for each school.

The series will be the second between the regional schools since 1998.

Colorado and Wyoming played a home-and-away series in 2006-07, but hadn't met before that since Dec. 9, 1998.

Colorado and Wyoming have squared off 76 times and the Cowboys lead the all-time series 41-35.

Colorado, however, leads the series in Boulder 24-15. But Wyoming has dominated at home, leading 26-10.

The two teams first met on Jan. 14, 1908. Colorado won that contest in Boulder, 57-23.

This year's Buffs (5-3) next host The Citadel at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, followed by Sunday's 2 p.m. home game against Longwood.

Wyoming also announced a new two-year deal with Northern Colorado, which will begin next season as well.
