Utah State football will have six additional nationally televised games in 2015

<strong>LOGAN, Utah –</strong> Utah State football will have six more nationally televised games it was announced Tuesday as the Mountain West released the remainder of its national television package for the 2015 season. To date, nine of Utah State’s 12 regular season games this coming fall are slated for national television.

The additional 33 Mountain West games announced today will be aired by CBS Sports Network and ESPN exclusively on Saturdays. Between the two television networks, 44 MW football games thus far will be aired this coming season on various platforms.

Utah State’s six additional nationally televised contests will include three home games and three road games. Three of the matchups will appear on one of the ESPN Networks (ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU), while the other three games will be televised by CBS Sports Network.

Utah State’s three games on CBS Sports Network include Mountain West road games at Fresno State on Saturday, Oct. 10 at 8:30 p.m. (MT) and at New Mexico on Saturday, Nov. 7 at 1:30 p.m., along with its home game against BYU on Saturday, Nov. 28 at 1:30 p.m. to end the regular season.

All three of Utah State’s games that will be nationally televised on one of the ESPN Networks are Mountain West matchups, including its league opener at home against Colorado State on Saturday, Oct. 3, along with a road game at Air Force on Saturday, Nov. 14 and a home game against Nevada on Saturday, Nov. 21.

Kickoff times and specific outlets for Utah State’s three ESPN games mentioned above will be determined during the course of the regular season (generally a 12-day window).

Utah State has three more Mountain West games that will be televised nationally as part of an 11-game Friday night package that was announced by the conference earlier this month. USU will host Boise State on Friday, Oct. 16 on CBS Sports Network at 7 p.m., play at San Diego State on Friday, Oct. 23 on ESPN2 at 8:30 p.m. (MT), and host Wyoming on Friday, Oct. 30 on ESPN2 at 8:15 p.m.

Additional 2015 broadcasts by ROOT Sports and the Mountain West Network powered by Campus Insiders will be announced in the coming weeks.
