All in all, not a bad schedule from the Mountain West. The MW isn’t a Power Five conference, but they’re a loaded G5 conference.
If their games are on TV, I have no problem at all burning a few hours watching their football.
After all, the Mountain West has Boise State, Air Force, Utah State, San Diego State and other respectable programs.
It’s not bad football at all, and now we know what the plans are for the 2020 football season. Ten games seems to be the standard during the coronavirus.
The big differences come when figuring out how many will be conference vs. non-conference games. The MW went with eight and two. I like it.
As long as there’s football on TV, then people will be happy. These conferences have done a great job getting things rolling during the coronavirus pandemic, and it’s time to keep getting things rolling!
