COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The Mountain West announced its 2020 football schedule on Thursday. Subject to approval from state, county and local officials, the 8-game schedule will begin on Saturday, Oct. 24. The top two teams with the highest Conference winning percentage will face off in the MW Championship game on Saturday, Dec. 19. The schedule is comprised of 46 Conference matchups playing out over nine weeks with no divisional delineation.
“We are excited to get our student-athletes back on the football field this fall,” said Commissioner Craig Thompson. “The shift away from a two-division format was necessary to optimize the schedule and allow for maximum flexibility given the various constraints which had to be considered. Inasmuch as the season begins with an uneven number of Conference games, and the possibility exists additional games may be lost to COVID-19 challenges, the procedures for determining the participants in and location for the MW Football Championship Game were adapted to accommodate a range of outcomes in as equitable a fashion as possible.”
Today’s release represents the first phase in the 2020 football schedule process. Mountain West national television partners CBS Sports and FOX Sports will now initiate a selection procedure which will include the shifting of several games to Thursdays and Fridays. Additional announcements on television selections will be made in the near future. All games the first week will be played on Saturday, Oct. 24.
The 2020 MW football membership includes Air Force, Boise State, Colorado State, Fresno State, Hawai‘i, Nevada, New Mexico, San Diego State, San José State, UNLV, Utah State and Wyoming.
