Brent Brennan was a San Jose State University assistant football coach the last time the Spartans' schedule had at least three consecutive home games on the schedule.

There was 2006 when the team went from 3-8 to 9-4 and a New Mexico Bowl victory thanks to four home games in a row covering September to mid-October. The next year, Brennan was still on the San Jose State coaching staff that had three home games in a row. The Spartans finished that season at 5-7.

Brennan will be the San Jose State head coach this time when the Spartans' 2018 schedule includes three consecutive home games in CEFCU Stadium.

"We play in a very good conference. We're excited to play the teams on our schedule. We have another tough non-conference schedule that's going to test us early starting with UC Davis," said Brennan. The schedule includes eight teams that played in a 2017 bowl game.

San Jose State opens Mountain West play presently on September 29 at home against Hawaii. Then the Spartans take on conference opponent Colorado State on October 6 and conclude three consecutive weeks at home with the team's first meeting with Army West Point on October 13. San Jose State will become the 38th school to play the three military service academies (Air Force, Army, and Navy) when the Spartans and Black Knights take the field.

The remaining three home games start with a Thursday, August 30 season opener with UC Davis, October 27 versus UNLV and November 17 against Nevada.

San Jose State's road opponents start with Pac-12 non-conference opponents Washington State on September 8 and Oregon on September 15. In conference action, the Spartans travel to San Diego State on October 20, Wyoming on November 4, Utah State on November 11 and close the regular season at Fresno State on November 25.

This year's schedule concludes the home-and-home cycle with Mountain West Mountain Division opponents Colorado State, Utah State and Wyoming.

Kickoff times and games assigned to the Mountain West television and broadcast partners will be announced in the future.

Season ticket renewals are underway. New season ticket holders can purchase their seats beginning March 24 when the Spartans host their annual Spring Game in CEFCU Stadium starting at 1:15 p.m.
