The UNLV football home opener against Arizona on Saturday, Sept. 7, will be at 7:30 p.m. on CBS Sports Network, it was announced Friday morning.
The Mountain West released the times for 21 games involving conference teams that will air on CBS Sports Network this season. Earlier this week the league announced the Rebels’ game at Air Force on Thursday, Nov. 21, will be on ESPNU. So far those are UNLV’s only TV games.
San Diego State, Colorado State and league newcomer Utah State each have five games on CBS Sports Network while Boise State and Air Force each have four. Combined with the ESPN games, the Falcons lead the league with seven nationally televised games. UNLV, with two, is tied with Fresno State for the third fewest in the league. New Mexico has just one while Wyoming is the only team not yet slated to appear on either network.
CBS Sports Network, in its eighth year working with the Mountain West, is the primary rights holder for the league. The recent ESPN deal gives the conference more exposure on another platform.
That will continue with announcements in the coming weeks about additional games on both networks plus information about second- and third-tier telecasts, such as ESPN3.
