LARAMIE, Wyo. - The PAC-12 Conference announced on Thursday television coverage and game times for several early season games, including the Sept. 13 game to be played between the Wyoming Cowboys and Oregon Ducks in Eugene, Ore. The Cowboys and Ducks game is scheduled to kick off at Noon, Mountain Time (11 a.m., Pacific) and will be televised on the PAC-12 Network. At least seven Wyoming football games in 2014 are now scheduled to be televised on a national television network.
Earlier this month, it was announced by the Big Ten Conference that Wyoming's Sept. 27 game at Michigan State would kick off at 10 a.m., Mountain Time (Noon, Eastern) and be televised by either ESPN, ABC or the Big Ten Network.
The Wyoming Cowboys will be featured on at least five ESPN network telecasts as part of the 2014 Mountain West Conference television package with ESPN. Four Wyoming Saturday games selected for television by the ESPN networks will combine with a Friday, Nov. 7 home game versus Utah State on ESPN2 to give the Cowboys five ESPN appearances during the conference portion of the schedule.
The first Cowboy game to be carried on an ESPN network during the 2014 season will be the Saturday, Sept. 6 home game versus Front Range rival Air Force. On Saturday, Oct. 18, Wyoming's home game versus San Jose State will be carried by the ESPN networks. The one Wyoming road game selected was the Saturday, Nov. 1 game at Fresno State. ESPN2 will carry the Friday, Nov. 7 game between Wyoming and Utah State, and the final ESPN network telecast of a Wyoming home game in 2014 will be on Saturday, Nov. 22 versus Boise State.
ESPN is expected to provide the network designation and game time for the Sept. 6 Wyoming-Air Force game when it releases its plans for the start of the season.
Game times and specific outlets for the remaining ESPN network games will be determined during the course of the regular season, and will generally be announced 12 days prior to the date of the game.
Wyoming was featured on ESPN networks three times in 2013, including two ESPN2 telecasts -- once at home vs. Fresno State and once on the road at Boise State. The Cowboys road game at Air Force in 2013 was carried on ESPNU.
ROOT SPORTS and the Mountain West Network powered by Campus Insiders will be announcing additional 2014 Mountain West football telecasts in the weeks to come.
