The Rebels’ Nov. 1 home game at Sam Boyd Stadium against New Mexico will kick off at 2:30 p.m. and air on Root Sports, it was announced today. This is the seventh Rebel game that has been picked up for some type of coverage.

Las Vegas isn’t in Root Sports’ coverage map, but satellite subscribers with an additional sports pack can get the game. The game will also be available for streaming online.

The other games selected for coverage include the opener at Arizona (Aug. 29, ESPN), at San Diego State (Sept. 27, ESPN Networks), at San Jose State (Oct. 4, ESPN Networks), Fresno State (Oct. 10, CBS Sports Network), at Utah State (ESPN Networks) and the season finale against UNR (Nov. 29, ESPN Networks).

The Mountain West Network may pick up additional games. The ESPN Network games could air on ABC, ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU or ESPN3. That decision is usually made at least 12 days before each game.
