COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The Mountain West Conference released the league’s 2020-21 men’s basketball schedule, Tuesday.

Boise State will open MW play at home against New Mexico, and will also host Air Force, Fresno State, UNLV and Utah State. The Broncos will travel to San José State, Wyoming, Colorado State, Nevada and San Diego State.

A busy January includes home games against Air Force (Jan. 6 and 8) and Fresno State (Jan. 21 and 23), while traveling to Wyoming (Jan. 11 and 13) and Colorado State (Jan. 28 and 30). After returning from Fort Collins, the Broncos will go back on the road to face Nevada (Feb. 5 and 7).
