The Mountain West Conference released on Thursday a listing of all 2016 football opponents for the 12 conference schools. As has been the case since the Mountain West went to a divisional format for football in 2013, each team will play all five opponents its own MW division and will play three conference opponents from the league’s other division. Each team will play four conference home games and four conference road games.

In 2016, Wyoming will host Mountain Division opponents Air Force, Boise State and Utah State. The Cowboys will also host West Division foe San Diego State. Wyoming will travel to Mountain Division members Colorado State and New Mexico, and will face West Division members Nevada and UNLV on the road.

Dates of conference games for the 2016 season will be announced by the Mountain West at a later date. Announcements of television coverage and kick times will also be announced in the future by the Mountain West Conference.

The 2016 season will kick off for the Wyoming Cowboys on Saturday, Sept. 3 when UW hosts Northern Illinois in War Memorial Stadium. The Cowboys will travel to Lincoln, Neb., to face the Nebraska Cornhuskers on Saturday, Sept. 10. Wyoming returns home the next week to host UC Davis on Saturday, Sept. 17, and the Pokes will conclude non-conference play on Saturday, Sept. 24 at Eastern Michigan.
