* Mountain West Conference press release

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., – The 2023 Mountain West football schedule is being released today and it is comprised of 98 games, including 48 Conference matchups, as the league begins its first season without divisions since 2012 (not including the 2020 season, impacted by COVID-19).

The Mountain West is coming off a 2022 season in which seven teams played in bowl games and three programs recorded 10-win seasons, the third-most among all FBS conferences.

The MW will debut a three-year schedule rotation where, within Conference play, each institution will face two opponents annually and six other teams on an alternating basis. Throughout the cycle, all institutions will play each other at least twice, including once at home and once on the road.

The new schedule format will put the MW in the best position for a spot in the College Football Playoff.

The 2023 schedule will play out over 14 weeks, concluding on Sat., Dec. 2, with the Mountain West Football Championship Game featuring the two teams with the highest Conference winning percentage.

Today’s release represents the first phase in the 2023 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 2023 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.
