Camp Verde High football will receive an unexpected break this year.
Mohave Accelerated, who the Cowboys were scheduled to face on Oct. 6 will not be able to field a football team this year. Camp Verde will now have a bye that week.
The match-up against the Patriot would have been a road game so the Cowboys will now have five home games and four away.
Last year Camp Verde beat Mohave Accelerated 39-0 and the Patriots went 0-10.
The Cowboys host Scottsdale Prep in a scrimmage on Friday at 6 p.m. They open the season with Chino Valley at home on August 25.
Camp Verde’s schedule will now feature three straight home games from mid-September to late October.
The Cowboys originally did not have a bye.
