Someone called the police on an entire college football team over the weekend. They were practicing too loud, apparently.

Wyoming held practice early on Friday morning. Music was blaring from the speakers on the jumbotron, as it typically does for a team's practice.

The noise was bothering someone, so police were called.

And they responded.

The Associated Press has the details:

The caller complained that University of Wyoming football players were playing music too loudly during practice at War Memorial Stadium. The stadium got a jumbotron with an improved speaker system a couple years ago.

Laramie police got the call at 7 a.m. Friday — too early, apparently, for at least one person in the neighborhood to listen to loud workout music.

Campus police went to the stadium and got the music turned down. Wyoming receiver Austin Conway tweeted later: "Who calls the police on their football team?"

That's a fair question.

Wyoming opens its season on Aug. 25 at New Mexico State. The Cowboys' first home game is set for Sept. 1 against Washington State.
