Mark your calendars: New Mexico football's 2024 Mountain West schedule unveiled

Feb. 29—The Mountain West on Thursday unveiled the league's full 2024 football schedule, including dates for New Mexico's seven league games and a home game against Washington State in Bronco Mendenhall's first season as head coach.

League opponent pairings were adjusted after Washington State and Oregon State — the last two remaining members of the Pac-12 — struck a scheduling alliance with the Mountain West in mid-December. In a "7+1" format, games against the Cougars and Beavers are considered non-conference games and do not count toward the league standings.

Dates for UNM's non-conference schedule against Montana State, Arizona, Auburn and New Mexico State have been locked in since last fall.

In 2024, the Lobos notably have a Week 0 game against Montana State (Aug. 24) and three scheduled bye weeks, both a product of UNM's road game against Hawaii.
