The Malibu High School football team has released its schedule for the 2017 season. 

Malibu is looking to rebound from a rocky 2016 campaign in which it went 2-10 overall and 1-2 in Frontier League play. The Sharks will have five home games this season, including the season opener against the Aztecs of Mark Keppel High School at 4 p.m. Friday, Aug. 25. 

Malibu will then kick off a two-game road trip in Week 2, starting with a 6:30 p.m. game at Windward on Sept. 1. The Sharks opened the 2016 season against Windward, losing narrowly 17-14, despite holding the Wildcats scoreless the entire second half. 

Malibu will follow it up with a 7:30 p.m. contest at Beverly Hills on Sept. 8. The Normans were one of only two teams the Sharks were victorious over last year; they beat Beverly Hills 41-8 in Week 3. 

The Sharks will then return home to host Big Bear at 6 p.m. Sept. 15. They remain home for a 6 p.m. game against McAuliffe on Sept. 22 before hitting the road again to face the Santa Monica Mariners at 7 p.m. on Sept. 29. Malibu closes out the preseason with a 6 p.m. game on Oct. 6 when it hosts Riverside Prep. 

The Sharks will have a week off before starting league play on the road at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 20 at Carpinteria. They will play their remaining two games at home, starting with Santa Clara at 6 p.m. Oct. 27. They beat the Saints 34-14 last season in Oxnard. 

Malibu will square off with Fillmore at 6 p.m. Nov. 3 in the regular season finale.
