SALT LAKE CITY – The Mountain West Conference previewed its conference schedule for the 2024 football season on Thursday.

The Aggies will play Hawaii, New Mexico, San Diego State, and UNLV at home. USU will hit the road for games against Boise State, Colorado State, and Wyoming.

The Aggies finished seventh in the Mountain West in 2023 with a record of 6-6.

After starting the season 1-3, USU flipped the script by winning three of its final four games to clinch a bowl berth.

USU will look to build on this season in 2024 with a solid number of returning starters.

Among those returning is senior quarterback Cooper Legas.

Utah football had an open date that needed to be filled in 2024 and Utah State answered the call.

The Utes and Aggies haven’t played each other since Utah State paid Utah a visit in Salt Lake City in 2015- a 24-14 win for the Utes.

Utah football will make the trip up to Logan in 2024 on September 14 with their out-of-conference matchup with conference foe Baylor being moved to September 7. The Utes will start their season on August 29 hosting Southern Utah.

Utah’s scheduling deal with Utah State includes two home matches for the Utes tentatively scheduled for September 19, 2026, and September 13, 2031.
