There were several exiciting moments on the field during Wyoming's 45-10 victory against Texas State on Saturday. But the best highlight took place on the sideline when a cheeleader connected with her father in Germany.

While University of Wyoming Spirit Squad member Sydney Ward was performing, her father was watching the game 5,000 miles away, where he is serving as a member of the United States Armed Forces.

It all started when her dad sent the hashtag to #interviewsydney to the Stadium Network on Twitter. The message eventually reached Stadium reporter Camryn Irwin, who shared the emotional moment with Cowboys fans watching all over the world.
