Idaho announces 2020 football schedule

By Kevin Kelley -

The Idaho Vandals have announced their 2020 football schedule, which features five home contests.

Idaho will open the 2020 season at home in the Kibbie Dome in Moscow, Idaho, against the Western Oregon Wolves on Sept. 5 (Military Appreciation Day). Western Oregon competes in the Great Northwest Athletic Conference in Division II.

The Vandals then set out for consecutive road contests at the Temple Owls on Sept. 12 and at the Washington State Cougars on Sept. 19, which will complete the non-conference portion of their schedule for the 2020 season.

After a bye week on Sept. 26, Idaho will play eight-consecutive Big Sky Conference contests, beginning with a road trip to face the UC Davis Aggies on Oct. 3.

On Oct. 10, the Portland Stats Vikings visit the Kibbie Dome for Idaho’s 112th Homecoming. The Vandals then play at the Eastern Washington Eagles on Oct. 17 before hosting three consecutive opponents in Moscow — Montana Grizzlies (Oct. 24; Leadership Weekend), Northern Arizona Lumberjacks (Oct. 31), and Southern Utah Thunderbirds (Nov. 7; Parent & Family Weekend).

Idaho wraps up their 2020 regular-season slate with back-to-back trips to face the Montana State Bobcats on Nov. 14 and the Idaho State Bengals on Nov. 21.

Future Idaho Football Schedules

I wish Idaho had dropped football entirely rather than move down to FCS.

Schools that left FBS in the past got rid of football entirely rather than move down for a good reason. FCS was below their dignity. That was especially the case with Pacific.

Idaho would have only been the second flagship state school to drop football. The first was vermont, 44 years ago.
