The Mountain West released its television schedule for the 2011 season today. It's surprisingly robust, with every single conference game being televised on The Mtn, Versus, or the CBS Sports Network. While that's not exactly the SEC's deal, let's not forget that we're still talking about every game being nationally televised, which just so happens to be more than the Big 12 has ever delivered for its members. Additionally, every game will be televised on HD where available. It's good to see that even as the conference is in flux with its membership, it still takes as good of care of its television-watching fans as possible.

At any rate, the full list is here, and some key games are listed below (all times Eastern).


Sept. 10, 2:00 pm: San Diego State at Army
Sept. 24, 8:00 pm: Tulsa at Boise State
Sept. 30 (Friday), 8:00 pm: SMU at TCU
Oct. 1, 3:30 pm: Air Force at Navy

Nov. 19, 3:30 pm: Colorado State at TCU
Nov. 19, 8:00 pm: Boise State at San Diego State
Dec. 3, 8:00 pm: Fresno State at San Diego State

If BSU v. Georgia is on ESPN September 3... I guess that means that the national broadcast season opener will be Oregon v. LSU at Jerrydome on ABC at the same time.  Until now that particular game has always been listed as ESPN/ABC.

I'm quite suprised that the big 12 actually seems like it has no intention of oxpanding. The MWC is safe for now unless this TV deal makes another team hit the road.

I am so glad that Utah does not have to play in this conference any longer.  Things were going in the right direction, but the TV deal the MWC has is AWFUL.  This past year was the ONLY year that games were offered in HD.  If anyone ever watched a game on their network, specifically the The Mtn, one would agree the commentary was almost as bad as the picture. 

Good luck to those remaining in the MWC.  Hope things keep progressing.

You are right. I think schools with the word "State" in them should not be allowed to play football with the big boys. ie Louisiana State (LSU), Penn State , Michigan State , Florida State , Arizona State, Oklahoma State, and let us not forget the "God" of college football The Ohio State Buckeyes. But ya know, whatevers!

Where the hell is the juggernaut that is New Mexico on this TV package? I always have them in my weekly pool of teams that lose by 30 or more and I need to see if the Lobos can produce a back-door cover. It may be just me or do most of these games involved a team with State in their name. I'm making plans for Ann Arbor in late September when the great Rocky Long schools his former boss.

Adam is out of his mind. The MWC doesn't take good care of its fans. It has routinely turned its nose up at its fans. Nationally televised games? No way and not even close. Most of America does not have access to these channels. Even markets where the MWC schools are located have no or limited access aka Fort Worth and San Diego. I live in Nevada, right in the middle of the MWC footprint, and I only have one of the three networks listed above with my dish. If I paid more, I could pick up a second, but the Mtn is not accessible with my service at all. The local cable company carries the Mtn but doesn't carry CBS sports. It is a joke. The MWC television deal is the reason the conference has fallen apart. If commissioner Craig Thompson had any clue of what he was doing he would never have signed this 15-year trap.But wait, I just realized Adam is an employ of CBS, which is the parent company of this horrible mess. The MWC can disappear for all I care now. My school is one of those bolting for greener pastures so I could honestly care less if I never see another riveting game between Wyoming and San Diego State.
