6 Things We Didn’t Know About Wyoming’s Border States
People in different states never characterize each other – or at least Wyomingites aren’t too snarky about neighbors (except CO). Anyhoo, here are 6 facts about our border states we didn’t know.

On football game days, Nebraska’s Memorial Stadium becomes the third largest city in their state, holding over 90,000 people. In fact, the Cornhuskers at home have been sold out every game since 1962—more than 325 games and counting. Whatever, Go Pokes!
Utah is the youngest state in the nation, that is the lowest median age. As of the last census in Utah it’s 29.2; The national median is 37.2.
Montana would like us to know their cowboys protected their cattle when under threat, but only the U.S. military ever engaged Native Americans. Cowboys and Indians were quite friends, as they are still today. It’s just Californians Montana hates.
