Mountain West Football: CBS Sports Network, ESPN Schedule Released
The Mountain West Conference unveiled 44 televised matchups today. Plan your viewing schedule accordingly.
Which games deserve the most anticipation?
The Mountain West Conference released the details behind a significant chunk of its 2018 television schedule this afternoon, unveiling the slate for both CBS Sports Network and the ESPN family of networks.
The slate begins with the Week Zero matchup between Hawaii and Colorado State, in Fort Collins on August 25, and includes five games with teams from Power 5 conferences. CSU, interestingly, is the primary beneficiary of this, as both the Rocky Mountain Showdown and a home date against SEC foe Arkansas will be broadcast on CBS Sports Network.
Fresno State, fresh off a 10-win season, will make seven different appearances on ESPN. This includes the highly anticipated rematch with the Boise State Broncos on ESPN2, who will make six total appearances themselves on the four-letter network, on November 9. At the other end of the spectrum, UNLV will make its lone appearance on ESPN the following evening, facing the San Diego State Aztecs on the road.
This is not the entirety of the schedule, however, as the official release notes that broadcasts for Stadium, Spectrum, and AT&T Sports Net will be announced at a later date.
