By Kevin Kelley -

The 2022 WAC Football Schedule has been officially announced. Conference play begins on Thursday, Sept. 1 with Lamar at Abilene Christian.

The 2022 season is the first full conference season for the WAC since they dropped football following the 2012 season. Last season, the WAC and ASUN formed an alliance that was dubbed the WAC–ASUN Challenge.

The WAC will include eight football-playing schools in 2022 — Abilene Christian, Dixie State, Lamar, Sam Houston, Southern Utah, Stephen F. Austin, Tarleton State, and UIW. Note that Dixie State University will change their name to Utah Tech University on July 1, 2022.

No. Dixie State had a bunch of non-conference games scheduled because they were Independent. They are keeping most, I assume so they don’t have to pay a penalty for canceling.

Strange that some of them seem to only have 6 conference games, while others play all 7 of their conference opponents. Anyone know the story on why that is?

It’s mainly due to Dixie State having so many games scheduled as an Independent. They are keeping as many as they can to save on cancellation fees.
