West Texas A&M announced its 2020 football schedule Thursday afternoon.

The Buffs schedule includes five home games at JFerg Field at Buffalo Stadium, and six road matchups in year four of the Hunter Hughes era.

The Buffs open the season with rival Azusa Pacific on Saturday, Sept. 5, before starting Lone Star Conference play in the home opener with UT Permian Basin on Sept. 12.

WT returns six starters on defense, to go with nine starters on offense, including five LSC All-Conference selections for a team that went 8-3 last fall.
