The 2018 FBS Independents Football Helmet Schedule is now available. The PDF schedule features the team helmets, date, and opponent for each FBS Independent team.
For the 2018 season, there are six FBS Independent teams. Liberty and New Mexico State join Army, BYU, Notre Dame, and UMass.
Liberty will play the 2018 season as an FBS Transitional team. Therefore, the Flames are not eligible for a post-season bowl game.
New Mexico State joins the FBS Independent ranks after their inclusion in the Sun Belt Conference was not renewed for the 2018 season. Idaho also departed the Sun Belt and dropped down to the Big Sky Conference in the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS).
The first FBS Independents to play in 2018 are the New Mexico State Aggies and the UMass Minutemen, who will both play in “Week Zero” on Aug. 25. New Mexico State hosts the Wyoming Cowboys while UMass hosts the Duquesne Dukes.
Helmet schedules for the ACC, Big 12, Big Ten, SEC, and Pac-12 have already been released. The remaining helmets schedules will be released over the next couple of weeks.
