Jackson Hole High School is getting some national attention for excluding something called “America day” from its homecoming festivities this year.

School administrators are defending and clarifying their decision—which drew protest from students and even garnered a reprimand from cable TV’s Fox & Friends.

“America day was never canceled,” says the school's activities director Mike Hansen. “It was never something that had been planned.”

In College football, the Wyoming Cowboys return to action Saturday to host New Mexico.   The Cowboys will be facing a team known for running the ball nearly 80 percent of the time. 

Wyoming Coach Dave Christensen says that the Lobos offense is difficult to stop.
