Great news everyone the television schedule is out for the 2010 MWC football season -- well most of it. The awesome news is that the Mtn. will broadcast all games in high definition which is a league first. Previously it was select games that were in high def.
The good news is that the opening game which is Thursday September 2nd is Pitt at Utah, and will be on Versus and if pre-season polls are correct this will be a matchup between to top 20 or 25 teams, and will be the marquee matchup of the night. The other games are on ESPN which are Southern Miss at South Carolina (side note: how does USC keep getting this game) the other is USC at Hawai'i. The USC game may be more interesting with Lane Kiffin and all but the best game will be Pitt at Utah.
There are still games to be determined such as non-conference road games. The New Mexico at Oregon, Wyoming aat Texas, and Air Force at Oklahoma will most definitely be on tv. Then the Utah at Iowa State and UNLV at West Virginia may be on television and most likely be a picked up game by ESPN if they want it or Fox Sports for the Iowa State game.
