WSU adds Fresno State home-and-home, Boise State series pushed back

A ton of shuffling around for games happening a lot of years from now!

NCAA Football: Colorado State at Fresno State Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

The Mountain West conference released their schedule for 2020 today and with it we saw the Washington State Cougars pickup a future non-conference opponent. The Fresno State Bulldogs announced that they had added a home-and-home with Wazzu for 2026 and 2027 with the first game being played in Pullman followed by the return trip to Fresno.

That wasn’t the only non-conference scheduling shuffle on the day though as another future Mountain West opponent will now not be seen for quite a while.

Theo also reported the move came at the request of the Boise State Broncos, though no announcement about who they wanted to bump WSU back for has been made yet. The schools have also not announced the exact dates for those games.

WSU still has some work to do to fill out their schedules from 2024 through 2027, though the 2026 and 2027 vacancies will likely be filled by yet-to-be-determined FCS opponents. In order to minimize six game home schedules though, don’t be surprised if you see WSU buy a couple of one-off games with Group of 5 opponents in 2024 and 2025 with 2027 now sitting at just 6 home games, pending any buy-out of the return game with Fresno State.
