LARAMIE, Wyo. -
The defending Mountain West Conference Tournament Champion Wyoming Cowboys announced game times and television coverage for the upcoming 2015-16 season on Friday. The announcement came in connection with the Mountain West Conference and its network television partners announcing the 2015-16 conference television package.
Wyoming will have 16 regular-season games televised as part of the MW television package, beginning with a non-conference home game versus the University of California-Berkeley on CBS Sports Network (CBSSN) Saturday, Dec. 5. The other non-conference home game that will be televised will be versus Southern University on ROOT SPORTS on Thursday, Dec. 10. The Cowboys will be featured on TV in 14 of 18 conference games, starting with the conference opener at San Diego State on Dec. 30 in a game to be televised by CBS Sports Network.
Wyoming is scheduled to appear on CBS Sports Network telecasts six times during the regular season. Three Cowboy games will be televised on ESPN Networks. ROOT SPORTS is scheduled to televise six Cowboy games, and Campus Insiders will carry the Wyoming at Colorado State game on Saturday, Feb. 20.
Two Wyoming road games were moved to different dates from the original schedule released in late June to accommodate television coverage. Wyoming will now play at Fresno State on Tuesday, Jan. 26 in a game to be televised by ESPN Networks. That game was originally scheduled for Wednesday, Jan. 27. The Pokes will play at Air Force on Tuesday, Feb. 2 rather than the original date of Wednesday, Feb. 3. That game will be televised on ROOT SPORTS.
The only Wyoming home game time that has not yet been set is the Saturday, Nov. 7 exhibition game versus Fort Lewis College. The Cowboy Football team plays Colorado State in Laramie on that same date. The football game is being televised on ESPN Networks and the game time for the football game will likely not be decided by ESPN until 12 days prior to Nov. 7, which will then determine what time the Cowboy Basketball game versus Fort Lewis will be played.
