Dixie State updates fall 2021 football schedule

By Kevin Kelley -

The Dixie State Trailblazers have updated their fall 2021 football schedule, according to their official athletics website.

Dixie State was previously scheduled to play at the New Mexico State Aggies on Saturday, Oct. 16. That game has been removed from their schedule and replaced by a home contest against the Tarleton State Texans.

The Trailblazers have also added a home game against the Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks. The two schools will meet at Greater Zion Stadium in St. George, Utah, on Saturday, Oct. 23.

One additional change has also been made to Dixie State’s schedule this fall. The Trailblazers were previously scheduled to play at the Montana Grizzlies on Saturday, Sept. 25 and have an open date on Oct. 9. Dixie State will now be open on Sept. 25 and will travel to play Montana on Oct. 9.

Dixie State is currently scheduled to open the fall 2021 season at home against the Sacramento State Hornets on Saturday, Sept. 4. Other home opponents include Weber State, Fort Lewis, and Missouri State.

In addition to Montana, Dixie State is scheduled to play at UC Davis, South Dakota State, Delaware, and Sam Houston State.
