Utah Tech Athletics Announces Updates to 2024 Football Schedule

(ST. GEORGE, Utah – June 10, 2024) Utah Tech Athletics announced on Monday the updated United Athletic Conference portion of its 2024 football schedule. The UAC restructured the complete slate of conference games following the announcement of Stephen F. Austin’s departure from the league late last month.

The Trailblazers will kick off its second season of UAC play at home vs. Abilene Christian on Saturday, Sept. 28, followed by consecutive road games at North Alabama (Oct. 5) and at Tarleton State (Oct. 12).

Utah Tech will then play four of its final five games of the season in the Beehive State, starting with a home date vs. Austin Peay on Saturday, Oct. 19. The Blazers follow that up with their first-ever trip to “The Bluegrass State” for a road match-up at Eastern Kentucky (Oct. 26).

Utah Tech returns to Greater Zion Stadium for a two-game homestand against first-time opponents, beginning with a home date vs. Central Arkansas on Saturday, Nov. 2. Then after their bye week (Nov. 9), the Trailblazers will square off against UAC and Division-I newcomer West Georgia on Senior Day Saturday, Nov. 16.

The Trailblazers will close out the regular season with the annual “Battle For The Ax” showdown at in-state rival Southern Utah (11/23).

Utah Tech’s four-game, non-conference scheduled remained intact, with three of those four games coming against Big Sky Conference opponents, beginning with the season opener vs. perennial FCS power Montana State inside Greater Zion Stadium on Saturday, August 31.

Utah Tech will open its six-game road schedule one week later with a quick trip to Las Vegas to take on 2023 Mountain West Conference runner-up and Guaranteed Rate Bowl game participant UNLV on Saturday, Sept. 7 at Allegiant Stadium.

The Blazers then return home one week later for a match-up against Northern Arizona (Sept. 14), before wrapping up their non-conference schedule with a road date at UC Davis (Sept. 21).

Game times for all 12 games have yet to be determined. Season and single game ticket information for the 2024 season will be announced in the coming weeks.

Utah Tech, which will be eligible for NCAA Division I FCS postseason play for the first time in program history in 2024, closed its final D-I transition season in 2023 with a 2-9 overall record, which included a 1-5 mark in UAC play.
