I think the MWC should adopt the schedule format that the SEC used for 10 years between 1992-2001.

This is the format the MWC should use:
5 division games
2 protected crossovers
1 rotating crossover (on an 8-year schedule)

These would be the protected crossovers:

Fresno State: Boise State, Wyoming
Hawaii: Colorado State, New Mexico
Nevada: Boise State, New Mexico
UNLV: Air Force, Utah State
San Diego State: Air Force, Colorado State
San Jose State: Utah State, Wyoming

Air Force: UNLV, San Diego State
Boise State: Fresno State, Nevada
Colorado State: Hawaii, San Diego State
New Mexico: Hawaii, Nevada
Utah State: UNLV, San Jose State
Wyoming: Fresno State, San Jose State

This would allow many other traditional rivalries to be played such as Boise State-Fresno State, Boise State-Nevada, and even a new rivalry can develop between Nevada and New Mexico based on their nicknames which are both wolf-related.

Of course if Air Force goes indy in football and Patriot League in other sports they can readily be replaced by UTEP.

Any thoughts on this format?

None of the rivalries you listed are actual rivalries.

Yeah. But what about the others?



This idea would never pass from the schools. The format maybe, but since most of the schools came from the old WAC there's quite a bit of rivalries but for it to work the WAC teams would want to protect games against WAC teams and MWC teams would want to protect games against MWC teams.

It works much easier with 1 protected crossover.

Boise State-Fresno State has gotten big too. Nevada-New Mexico has great potential to be big too based on both schools' nicknames.
