Utah Tech announces 2023 football schedule

By Brian Wilmer -

The Utah Tech Trailblazers have announced their 2023 football schedule, which includes four home games and a trip to Colorado State among the 11 total games.

Utah Tech opens the 2023 season with four of its first five on the road. The Trailblazers open with back-to-back opponents out of the Big Sky Conference, beginning at Montana State on Saturday, Sept. 2, then welcoming the Montana Grizzlies to Greater Zion Stadium in St. George, Utah, on Saturday, Sept. 9. Utah Tech continues its swing through the Big Sky with a trip to Flagstaff, Ariz., to battle Northern Arizona on Saturday, Sept. 16.

The Trailblazers close out the ninth month by continuing their grueling road slate. Utah Tech visits Missouri State on Saturday, Sept. 23, and Colorado State on Saturday, Sept. 30.

Utah Tech’s conference schedule in 2023 will be a mixture of ASUN and Western Athletic Conference teams, dubbed “ASUN-WAC.” The two conferences, which consist of nine football-playing members, formed the joint association to ensure NCAA championship access.

Stephen F. Austin opens the league slate for Utah Tech, paying the Trailblazers a visit on Saturday, Oct. 7. A bye week follows one week later, with a trip to Tom Braly Memorial Stadium in Florence, Ala., following on Saturday, Oct. 21, to take on North Alabama. Eastern Kentucky will then do battle with Utah Tech in St. George on Saturday, Oct. 28, to close the month.

Utah Tech then hits the road for consecutive conference games, visiting Abilene Christian on Saturday, Nov. 4, and Austin Peay on Saturday, Nov. 11. In-state rival Southern Utah closes the league and regular-season slates in the Battle for the Ax in St. George on Saturday, Nov. 18.
