The Mountain West announced that have adopted an eight-game conference football schedule starting in 2012. They also revealed their new logo.
The MWC will play a seven-game schedule in 2011 before moving to eight in 2012. That’s when Fresno State, Hawaii and Nevada join the conference, while TCU departs for the Big East.
With the adoption of the eight -game schedule, MWC schools will be able to play four non-conference games each season. This helps schools bring in more revenue with extra home games, plus benefits Air Force who has to play Army and Navy every year.
