ESPN Picks Up A Couple Wyoming Football Games

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

The long wait is finally over.

The last several weeks have featured numerous releases by TV networks and the Mountain West as they announced broadcast schedules. Each time Wyoming had struck out. That has finally changed as some good news was finally given to Wyoming fans.

On Thursday, the Mountain West Conference announced 15 additional games that have been selected by ESPN to be televised during the 2013 college football season. Two of the selected games will feature the Wyoming Cowboys. The Cowboys' road games at Air Force on Sept. 21 and at Boise State on Nov. 16 were both selected for television coverage on ESPN Networks.

We won't know the exact channel the broadcast will appear on until much closer to kickoff. They are usually determined within 12 days of the game. The options would be: ABC/ESPN/ESPN2/ESPNU/ESPN3. I would imagine they will likely be one of the latter networks. ESPN3 is only available online and through streaming on phones and other devices.

Surprised the Boise State game wasn't announced earlier as ESPN has an agreement to show all the Broncos home games.

There was another bit of good news that came out earlier in the week as Nebraska announced more details about their game with the Pokes. Kickoff will be at 6pm MT and will be televised on the Big Ten Network. Not a gigantic network but the Big Ten Network is easy enough for most fans to be able to find.

Now we are just waiting on news on what will happen with the nine remaining games. I think the least likely to be broadcast are the home games with Idaho and Northern Colorado. Not sure what type of arrangement Texas State will be able to work out for 9/28. The Bobcats are switching to the Sun Belt after being a member of the WAC in it's final year.
