Cal Poly moves to the Big Sky Conference this fall with an 11-game slate that includes five home games, eight conference games and a game against Wyoming from the FBS.
The Mustangs’ home opener will be against San Diego on Sept. 1, and the four other home games will be against new conference foes UC Davis, Northern Colorado, Portland State and Idaho State.
Portland State will be the Homecoming game while Northern Colorado is the Parents Weekend game.
Montana and Montana State were Big Sky co-champions last fall. The Mustangs do not face either team this fall.
Cal Poly’s only other non-conference game will be at Eastern Washington, which edged the Mustangs in three overtimes last year.
Here is the complete schedule of home games:
* Big Sky Conference game.
Cal Poly closed out its tenure in the Great West Conference last year by posting a 6-5 mark and claiming its fourth conference title, more than any other school in the Great West’s eight-year history. The Mustangs ended the season ranked No. 10 among the 124 NCAA Division I Football Championship Subdivision teams in the Jeff Sagarin rankings published in USA Today.
The Mustangs open spring drills April 2 and will play their annual spring football game on April 28 in Spanos Stadium. Admission is free and open to the public.
