San Diego State will appear on the network twice this season when it hosts San Diego at 5 p.m. PT on Saturday, September 5 and South Alabama at 5 p.m. PT on Saturday, September 19.
The MWN will also carry four Conference matchups in 2015, starting with the Battle for the Fremont Cannon when Nevada hosts UNLV at 4 p.m. PT on Saturday, Oct. 3. The network will stream a double-header on Saturday, Oct. 10 as the Wolf Pack welcomes New Mexico to Reno at 4 p.m. PT, and San Jose State travels to UNLV for a 6 p.m. PT kick. The final league game scheduled to be broadcast features San Jose State at Nevada on Saturday, Nov. 14 (1 p.m. PT). The MWN and Campus Insiders will also feature a variety of Mountain West-related news, analysis and highlights throughout the entire season.
"The Mountain West is a tremendous partner, and we look forward to providing a great schedule of live football games to fans again this season," said Crowley Sullivan, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Campus Insiders. "Producing these high-quality, live games has been integral in our ability to showcase the Mountain West teams and student-athletes as part of our overall coverage of college sports on Campus Insiders."
In addition to these seven Campus Insiders-produced games, the Mountain West Network will also retain the digital streaming rights to the nine previously-announced ROOT SPORTS football telecasts. Digital streams of those games will be made available on the MWN in those areas that fall outside of the ROOT SPORTS Rocky Mountain, Northwest and Southwest territories, and any additional markets for which the games have been sublicensed to a local cable or broadcast network. The MWN will also endeavor to carry streams from the games that currently remain untelevised and may be produced or streamed by the host institution or a local television provider.
