Colorado State announced the addition of Houston Baptist to its 2027 non-conference schedule, which will mark the first football game between the two schools.
Houston Baptist will travel to Fort Collins on Saturday, September 25, 2027 for the first meeting. Colorado State also announced a home-and-home series with Sam Houston State in 2027 and 2028 although the Bearkats will leave the FCS after this season to join the FBS and Conference USA.
Houston Baptist now has at least two FBS opponents scheduled in 2024, 2026, and 2027. The Huskies will play at Texas State this season on September 24 and Western Kentucky on September 9, 2023. In 2024, they will play at SMU on August 31 and Texas-San Antonio on September 21. There are currently no scheduled FBS opponents for Houston Baptist in 2025 but 2026 has both North Texas on September 26 and Rice on October 10. 2027 will see Houston Baptist travel to UTEP on September 11 in addition to the Colorado State matchup.
Houston Baptist is coming off its worst season since starting the football program in 2013 going winless (0-8 in the Southland and 0-11 overall). The Huskies will begin the 2022 season with a road game at Northern Colorado on Saturday, September 3 followed by the home opener on September 10 against Division 1 newcomer Lindenwood.
