Colorado State will open its season that day against New Mexico at Canvas Stadium in Fort Collins. CSU and Air Force will play each other at the Academy on Nov. 24.

Wyoming will kick off 2020 on the road at Nevada. The Cowboys will travel to CSU for the annual Border War game on Nov. 7 and host Air Force in Laramie the following weekend (Nov. 14).

The Mountain West championship game will be played on Dec. 19.

The times of conference games are to be determined. Here are the schedules for each team:
