The Black 14
Just watched a documentary on the Black 14 from the University of Wyoming. I knew the basics of the story but not all of the details. I would encourage all to watch and learn.

One interesting fact I learned was the University of Wyoming and BYU were members of the Western Athletic Conference in 1969 when the events occurred. Other WAC football teams joined in solidarity with the Black 14. BYU had their first African-American player on their team the next year, 1970.

Sounds like it's worth the watch. Is it on one of the major streaming platforms?

I think I heard that Wyoming and BYU were in the WAC once.

Yes, where can we watch? I found some things on YouTube, but not sure if they’re the one you’re referring to.

It was on the CBS Sports Network. The Black 14: Wyoming Football 1969

It’s only an hour long so a quick watch. I recorded it so I could skip thru the commercials.

Todor, you must be a pretty young fella. Wyoming and BYU were in the WAC for many years. As recently as the late 90's.
