Weber State has added two more Pac-12 opponents to its upcoming football schedules.

The Wildcats, who play Utah this season, will open the 2014 football season at Arizona State. Weber State is also scheduled to play at Oregon State in the season opener in 2015.

WSU also added a home-and-home non-conference series against Big Sky Conference foe Sacramento State for 2014 and 2015. The Wildcats and Hornets have met each year since 1996 but, due to the expanded conference membership, are not scheduled to play conference games in 2014 and 2015. Both scheduled games will not count in the Big Sky standings.

The Wildcats and Sun Devils will meet in the season opener Aug. 28 at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, Ariz. It will be the first meeting ever between the two schools and mark the fifth opponent for Weber State from a BCS conference.

Weber State will still add one home game to the 2014 football schedule. FCS teams are allowed to play 12 regular season games in 2013 and 2014.
