The news about television stations picking up more Mountain West football games has been fast and furious over the past two days. The latest comes from the Nevada Wolf Pack who will have two more football games picked up. The two games are both on the road and will be against the UNLV Rebels matchup which takes place on Oct. 1 and the second is against the New Mexico Lobos.
The UNLV game will be on the new Time Warner Cable SportsNet channel with Charter Communications carrying the game in the Northern Nevada area. The New Mexico game will be produced by Comcast New Mexico with Charter picking up the game as well. With Comcast New Mexico producing the game it makes sense that the game will air locally in Albuquerque too.
Nevada athletic director Cary Groth is glad that additional games have been picked up:
"I'm excited that all six of our road games this year will be carried on television so our fans have the opportunity to follow the action away from Mackay Stadium," Groth said. "We're pleased to have 10 of our games on television this season as that is valuable exposure for our athletics program and I'm thankful for the hard work put in by the Mountain West and all of our television partners."
This is a good deal for those who want to watch Nevada play football live on television and now have to rely on the radio broadcast. The good thing about Time Warner Cable SportsNet is that the channel will be available in most of California, and some of Nevada for those who have Time Warner since they are covering Fresno State, San Diego State and UNLV sports.
