The first batch of Mountain West televised football games for the 2018 season was announced today. The Wolf Pack should have the majority of its games on national television this year as non-conference road contests against Vanderbilt and Toledo are controlled by the Southeastern and Mid-American conferences, respectively, and broadcast information will be announced in the coming months.
The season begins with a nationally-televised MW matchup on August 25 between Hawai'i and Colorado State in Fort Collins, broadcast by CBS Sports Network.
The highlights of this TV schedule include a rare afternoon time-slot in the home opener against Pac-12 opponent Washington State. That will be a 5:00 p.m. kick-off.
Wyoming will be featured on CBS Sports Network three times and ESPN Networks twice.

All that remains is the FA Cup, which they reached the final of yesterday with their excellent 2-1 victory against Tottenham .
Fresno State, fresh off a 10-win season, will make seven different appearances on ESPN.
The final known TV game is the home finale November 17 versus Air Force.
UW's first appearance on one of the ESPN Networks will be their game at Fresno State Oct. 13. Those games are generally subject to the network's policy in which the specific network and kickoff times will be announced 12 days prior to each game.
This is not the entirety of the schedule, however, as the official release notes that broadcasts for Stadium, Spectrum, and AT&T Sports Net will be announced at a later date.
