The Mountain West Conference has announced a new football schedule rotation for the 2023 through 2025 seasons.
A new rotation of opponents was set due to the Mountain West eliminating their divisions beginning with the 2023 season. The new rotation will also allow conference members to play each other more often.
The new model, which avoided repeat matchups at the same location from 2022 to 2023, is based on a 2-6 structure where each team will play two guaranteed opponents annually and face six other Conference teams. During the three-year cycle, all teams will face nine of 11 opponents at least twice, once at home and once on the road, and two opponents in each of the three years.
Below are the guaranteed opponents for each team:
Air Force – Colorado State, Wyoming
Boise State – New Mexico, Utah State
Colorado State – Air Force, Wyoming
Fresno State – Nevada, San Jose State
Hawaii – San Diego State, UNLV
Nevada – Fresno State, UNLV
New Mexico – Boise State, San Jose State
San Diego State – Hawaii, Utah State
San Jose State – Fresno State, New Mexico
UNLV – Hawaii, Nevada
Utah State – Boise State, San Diego State
Wyoming – Air Force, Colorado State
