The Mountain West has announced the conference opponents for the 2013 through 2016 seasons.
Each MWC team will play four home and four road games per season, which will consist of five games against teams from the same division and three teams from the opposite division. This will allow each MWC school to play all of the other schools every four years.
From the MWC:
Intra-divisional opponents will alternate sites annually (three home/two away or two home/three away). The three cross-divisional opponents will be the same in each two-year period, with the site alternating from Year 1 to Year 2. The three cross-divisional opponents who are missed initially will appear on the schedule in the second two years of the cycle, again alternating sites from Year 3 to Year 4. The entire four-year sequence repeats beginning in 2017 and will continue thereafter.
The inaugural MWC Football Championship Game will be played on Saturday, Dec. 7, 2013. It will be a match-up of the Mountain and West Division winners and will be hosted by the team ranked highest in the BCS.
The finalized 2013 MWC football schedule will be released “in the coming weeks,” according to today’s announcement.
