COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The 2024 Mountain West football schedule was released today and is comprised of 42 Conference matchups as well as nonconference contests against Oregon State and Washington State as part of a previously announced scheduling agreement with the two Pac-12 schools.

The Mountain West is coming off a 2023 season in which seven teams played in bowl games. The 2024 season will see six new head coaches take the reins at MW schools and will be the first under a new multi-year deal with Old Trapper to serve as the title sponsor of the Mountain West Football Championship Game.

Games against Oregon State and Washington State will not count toward the MW standings and those two squads will not be eligible to participate in the Old Trapper Mountain West Championship Game. The scheduling agreement strengthens the Conference’s nonconference schedule, enhances the league’s national brand and expands the MW footprint.

The 2024 schedule will play out over 15 weeks, concluding with the Old Trapper Mountain West Football Championship Game on a date to be announced. The contest will feature the two teams with the highest Conference winning percentage.

Today’s release represents the first phase in the 2024 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 2024 MW football membership includes Air Force, Boise State, Colorado State, Fresno State, Hawai‘i, Nevada, New Mexico, San Diego State, San José State, UNLV, Utah State and Wyoming.
