The Mountain West announces a football scheduling agreement with Oregon State and Washington State – Mountain West Conference

Colorado Springs, Inc. – The Mountain West Conference today announced a football scheduling agreement for the 2024 season between the Mountain West, Oregon State University, Washington State University and the Pac-12 Conference.

Next season, all 12 teams will play seven traditional conference football games plus one contest against Washington State or Oregon State for a total of eight games (four home and four away). Games against OSU and WSU will not count toward the conference standings, and neither Pac-12 school will be eligible to participate in the MW championship game. The Mountain West is currently working on its football schedule and will release games soon.

“This is a unique and unprecedented opportunity for Oregon State and Washington State to play against highly competitive Mountain West football programs in 2024,” said MW Commissioner Gloria Nevarez. “The scheduling agreement will expand the Mountain West and strengthen our national brand, while providing new opportunities for our student-athletes, all in alignment with our strategic priorities. The scheduling agreement strengthens the league’s non-conference schedules, and we look forward to having Oregon State and Washington State be a part of List 2024.
