Mountain West Announces 2015 Schedule
March 2, 2015


COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - The 2015 Mountain West football schedule was released by the conference office, Monday. Dates have tentatively been set for each of the Broncos' eight league games, though telecast and kick times are still being finalized and will be announced at a later date.

The conference office will work with ESPN and CBS Sports Network in the next phase of the scheduling process, which could move particular games to Thursdays and Fridays. This will be followed by the selection of games by ROOT SPORTS and the Mountain West Network powered by Campus Insiders.

This is the third year of the initial four-year cycle in which each member institution will play every other league opponent home and away. In addition to playing five intra-divisional games each season, teams also play three cross-divisional opponents. Boise State played Fresno State, Nevada and San Diego State in the first two years of the cycle, and will face Hawai'i, San José State and UNLV both home and away the next two seasons.

Including the Broncos' nonconference slate, Boise State will open the 2015 season playing on nine-consecutive weeks. In nonconference play, Boise State will host Washington (Friday, Sept. 4) and Idaho State (Friday, Sept. 18), and travel to BYU (Saturday, Sept. 12) and Virginia (Friday, Sept. 25), then play five league games before the team's only bye of the season, scheduled for Nov. 7.

The Broncos' quest to defend its 2014 Mountain West Championship will begin in Boise when the team squares off against Hawai'i at Albertsons Stadium, Oct. 3 (Saturday). The game with the Rainbow Warriors will mark the third-straight season the team opens its conference slate at home.

Back-to-back road trips at Colorado State (Saturday, Oct. 10) and Utah State (Saturday, Oct. 17) follow the meeting with Hawai'i, the only time in 2015 that the Broncos will play consecutive road games.

The Broncos return to Albertsons Stadium for a match-up with Wyoming (Saturday, Oct. 24), before hitting the road once more. Boise State will travel to Las Vegas for a Halloween tilt against UNLV (Saturday, Oct. 31).

Following the bye, Boise State will host consecutive games against New Mexico (Saturday, Nov. 14) and Air Force (Saturday, Nov. 21), before closing the regular season at San José State in San José, Calif. (Saturday, Nov. 28).

The 2015 Mountain West Football Championship is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 5, and will be played at the home stadium of the highest-ranked divisional champion.
