The Cal Poly football program announced Tuesday that it will play at Nevada on Sept. 10, 2016.
The Mustangs last played the Wolf Pack in 1998, losing 63-0. It remains the last time Cal Poly was shut out. Nevada leads the nine-game all-time series between the two, dating back to 1941, 6-3.
Cal Poly will play at Arizona State in its first-ever game against a Pac-12 opponent Sept. 19, 2015. The Mustangs have four additional games against FBS-level schools in the West scheduled for the next three seasons: at Wyoming next year, at Fresno State and Colorado State in 2013, and at New Mexico State in 2014.
“This is a great travel opportunity for our fans to see a quality brand of football against some of the best teams in the West region,” Cal Poly athletic director Don Oberhelman said in a news release. “The added element of likely television coverage of at least four of the games throughout the West will increase exposure of the university.”
