The Mountain West Conference announced Wednesday the conference slate for the 2016 football season.
The Bulldogs kick off the year with four-straight nonconference matchups followed by back-to-back road games at UNLV and Nevada to begin league play.
Fresno State then comes home in mid-October for a conference home-opening clash with San Diego State before going on the road to Utah State. The Bulldogs close out October hosting Air Force.
The ‘Dogs then travel to Colorado to face Colorado State for their first matchup of November before entering their bye week.
Fresno State closes out the regular season with consecutive home games against Hawaii and in-state rival San Jose State.
