Mountain West football: League announces Friday night TV schedule package

The Mountain West announced their Friday night football television package,with a few Thursday games included.

The first slew of televised Mountain West football games have been announced. This first slate is Friday night games for the year, plus a few Thursday games.

The breakdown of these games has one on ESPN with five on ESPN2 and CBS Sports Network. The first notable item is that as of now there is just one Friday night of overlapping games. This is it for Thursday and Friday night games which is good to prevent competing games.

Boise State leads the with way with five Friday night games -- they have six overall with other being a road game at Virginia on Sept. 25 -- with a surprisingly amount of three of those on CBS Sports Network, and two on an ESPN network. Utah State has three games on Friday night with Fresno State and San Jose State coming in next with a pair of appearances.

Outside of Boise State, the league did a good job of making sure the majority of the league is on Friday night which gives a team a chance to be the showcase game on a less crowded night. As of now it is only the New Mexico Lobos and the Colorado State Rams are not on this slate, but that could change.

The biggest league game on this Friday night stretch has to be Boise State at Utah State which could very well decide the Mountain Division and it will be on CBS Sports Network which is a shame since distribution is low.
