The 2020 season will consist of eight conference games with games starting on October 24. The MW championship game will be held on December 19.
Fresno State Athletics announced Friday that Bulldogs will play, but due to COVID-19, no fans will be allowed to watch inside Bulldog Stadium.
The conference said coaches and athletes will be tested three times a week for COVID-19.
The move is a reversal from a decision on August 10th to postpone fall sports "in response to ongoing challenges with the effective mitigation and management of the COVID-19 virus in conjunction with athletic competition."

Schedule still coming, fans in the stands is up to the individual states (no go for Fresno St) and coaches and athletes will be tested 3 times a week for COVID-19. @ABC30 https://t.co/lPukkXX2Xl
Fresno State is one of five schools in the conference who did not hold a single spring football practice as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Student athletes have been off campus since March.
