Wyoming Is Attempting To Land Broadcast Rights For Their Home Football Games

New, 9 comments

So far the Wyoming Cowboys have only one football that is to be broadcast for the upcoming season, but they will have at least two that end up on television since the game against the Texas Longhorns is likely to be on the Longhorn Network.

The Wyoming higher ups have decided to take matters into their own hands and are looking to make a deal to broadcast three or four home football games.

Senior Associate athletic director Kevin McKinney did an interview on KFBC in Wyoming this past week and said that the school is in talks with ROOT Sports and Altitude to carry some of their home games. Currently the only home game to be broadcast is against the Boise St. Broncos and will be shown on the CBS Sports Network.

The games that Wyoming is trying to broker a deal for are Toledo, Cal Poly, San Diego State, Colorado State and Air Force. For starters, the Colorado State must be shown on television since it is one of the longest rivalries in all of college football. Actually the other conference games are intriguing against Force and San Diego State.

Toledo is a decent team so there is some hope for that game, and as for the Cal Poly game if that is picked up it will be by a local Wyoming affiliate.
