The Matadors’ regular season schedule will now open with Western States Football League play immediately in late August, and end in mid-October to accommodate the WSFL’s new playoff format beginning in late October.
The schedule was released a little over a month before the start of preseason football drills at the college, and a little less than seven months since the Matadors won their first postseason bowl game in 40 years, defeating Nassau Community College in the 2012 El Toro Bowl last December in Yuma.
With the exception of a 12-noon start in Utah against Snow College on October 19th, every other Matador matchup will be a 7pm kickoff. After the regular season, the Matadors will play at least one game in the WSFL Playoff Tournament, which will run from October 26th through November 9th. All of AWC’s games will be heard live here on NewsTalk 560 KBLU.
