MWC 2021 Fall College Football Schedules

March 15, 2021 by Staff

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The 2021 Mountain West football schedule features eight games against teams ranked in the top 25 of the final Associated Press poll in 2020, including No. 4 Texas A&M, No. 9 Iowa State, No. 11 BYU (twice), No. 16 Iowa, No. 20 Oklahoma State, No. 21 USC and No. 23 Ball State.

This represents the first phase in the 2021 football schedule process. Mountain West national television partners CBS Sports and FOX Sports will now initiate a selection procedure which will include the shifting of particular games to non-Saturday dates. That will be followed by the identification of network outlets and kick times.

The 2021 MW football membership includes Air Force, Boise State, Colorado State, New Mexico, Utah State and Wyoming in the Mountain Division and Fresno State, Hawai‘i, Nevada, San Diego State, San José State and UNLV in the West Division.

Boise State is listed at 10,000:1 odds to win the national championship. You can discover the best online casino sites.

The first nonconference game that stands out occurs on opening weekend when Hawai'i visits UCLA on August 28.

The following week, Boise State goes cross-country to Orlando to face UCF. That game will mark the debut of new head coaches for both schools - Andy Avalos for the Broncos and Gus Malzahn for the Knights.

Also on September 4, Mountain West teams have four games against PAC-12 schools with Utah State visiting Washington State, Fresno State heading to Oregon, Nevada traveling to CAL and one of last year's surprise teams, San Jose State, trekking downstate to USC. The Utah State game begins the Blake Anderson era.

Three more matchup with PAC-12 teams take place on September 11 when San Diego visits Arizona State, UNLV takes on Arizona, and Hawai'i faces a second PAC-12 opponent on a road trip to Oregon State.

On September 18, Fresno State faces a second PAC-12 team when the Bulldogs go to Pasadena to tackle UCLA. On that same date, Utah visits San Diego State. Until then, you can have fun with these slot machines.

Lest it be thought otherwise, the PAC-12 doesn't have a monopoly on Power 5 opposition status for the Mountain West. Games are also scheduled against the Big Ten, SEC and the Big 12 on September 18. That's when Oklahoma State visits Boise State, Nevada travels to Kansas State, New Mexico heads to Texas A&M and UNLV hosts Iowa State.

Air Force will look to capture the Commander-in-Chief's Trophy when the Falcons visit Navy on September 11 and host Army on November 6.

Some key conference games include Nevada at Boise State on October 2, San Diego State at Air Force on October 23, and Fresno State at San Jose State on November 27.

Last year, San Jose State captured its first-ever Mountain West title. It also the first time that neither Boise State, San Diego State or Fresno State did NOT win the championship since 2011.
