Will the musical group Men Without Hats make a comeback thanks to the University of Wyoming football team and defensive end Josiah Hall?
Not likely, but Cowboy fans and others across the nation are suddenly singing the Canadian new wave group's 1983 hit, "The Safety Dance," thanks to Wyoming's late-game safety that lifted the Cowboys to a 30-28 win over then No. 13 Boise State in a national televised game Saturday night.
Hall did his own safety dance in front of the game officials as they grouped together to decide on the call. He put is hands together over his head for the safety signal and wiggled his hips ... well, that's all I can probably say.

The clip turned into somewhat viral across the Internet and was also featured on ESPN's SportsCenter, along with Scott Van Pelt’s “Best Thing I Saw Today.”
Even the group Men Without Hats featured it on its Facebook page.
"This whole thing is getting kind of blown out of control in my opinion," Hall told the Casper star-Tribune, "but I mean, it’s pretty cool. It’s pretty funny to watch."
The safety gave Wyoming the winning points in the Cowboys' first victory against a ranked opponent since 2002.
"People want to know if I can do that safety dance," head coach Craig Bohl told the Star-Tribune. "He (Hall) did, but I’m doing that."
With the win, the resurgent Cowboys moved to 4-0 in the Mountain West and 6-2 overall. In Bohl's first two seasons, Wyoming won six games.
As you probably know, six games makes a team bowl eligible.
The Cowboys and their fans have permission to let loose just a bit.
They can dance if they want to.
