Oct. 15, 2014 – The Wyoming Lottery Corporation today announced its plans for a special halftime performance at the University of Wyoming homecoming game versus San Jose State at War Memorial Stadium on Oct. 18.
Along with the halftime entertainment, the Lottery will be unveiling the WyoLotto bus at tailgate parking spot #53 and selling lottery tickets, as well as offering fun games and prizes. Yolo, the Lottery’s bright yellow jackpotalope mascot, will also make an appearance.
“We are not releasing the specific details about the performance, except to hint that it involves a fast-paced, hilarious game with Yolo and Pistol Pete as the referees,” said Jon Clontz, the Wyoming Lottery’s CEO. “We are excited to provide some of the halftime entertainment to what is expected to be a packed house as the Cowboys take on the Spartans.”
