LARAMIE – As college athletics departments across the nation scramble to make ends meet in the midst of a pandemic, the University of Wyoming finds itself having to make sacrifices, as well.

UW athletics director Tom Burman told WyoSports the department has cut about $1 million from its expenses budget thus far, mainly by cutting travel costs and a lack of summer school for student-athletes. There are no plans to cut any of UW’s 17 sports, Burman said, which has not been the case at many programs nationally, particularly non-Power Five schools.
