Seven Mountain West Conference College Football Telecasts for 2013

ESPN announced the telecast schedule for seven of its Mountain West Conference college football games for ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPNU during the 2013 season. The lineup includes one Thursday and six Friday night games. Additional telecasts will be announced in the coming months. Highlights:

ESPN will televise a Mountain West matchup over four consecutive Fridays from September 13 to October 4, highlighted by at least one telecast of the three teams that claimed a share of the conference championship in 2012: Boise State, Fresno State and San Diego State.

· The schedule includes multiple telecasts involving Boise State, highlighted by a showdown against Fresno State on Friday, Sept. 20, at 9 p.m. ET on ESPN. Boise State defeated Fresno State 20-10 last season, giving the Bulldogs their only conference loss of the 2012 campaign. ESPN will also televise the Broncos against Air Force on Friday, Sept. 13, at 8 p.m.

· San Diego State, coming off a 7-1 conference record in 2012, will host Nevada on Friday, Oct. 4, at 9 p.m. on ESPN.

· ESPN will televise a matchup between new conference members Utah State and San Jose State on Friday, Sept. 27, at 9 p.m. ESPN2 will also televise San Jose State in a non-conference game against Navy on Friday, Nov. 22, at 9:30 p.m.

The 2013 season marks the first year of a multi-year agreement between ESPN and the Mountain West for rights to select conference-controlled football and basketball games through the 2019-20 campaign. As part of the deal, ESPN will acquire exclusive worldwide rights to televise up to 16 Mountain West football games plus every Boise State home game as well as up to 31 conference-controlled men's basketball games annually.

In 2012, ESPN televised four MW football games through a sublicense agreement. It marked the first time ESPN had televised Mountain West games from a member institution's home venue since 2005. ESPN had a regular schedule of conference member home games from the league's inception in 1999 to 2005 and televised BYU vs. TCU at Cowboys Stadium on Friday, Oct. 28, 2011.

2013 Mountain West Schedule as of April 23 (additional selections will be announced):
