Cowboy Football’s National TV Games Announced For 2019 Season
Six appearances on national television are ahead for the Wyoming Cowboys football team during the 2019 season.
The Mountain West Conference and its national TV partners, CBS Sports Network and ESPN Networks, made the announcement of the conference’s 44-game slate Thursday.
UW will appear twice on CBS Sports Network and four times on an ESPN Network. Two of those are home games that will be in prime time. They are against Missouri and Colorado State.
The Cowboys’ season debut will be a night game versus the Tigers, Aug. 31. It will air on CBS Sports Network and start at 5:30 p.m.
Wyoming’s annual Border War game against rival Colorado State will be televised on ESPN2. The game is being moved to a Friday night for a second straight season. The Cowboys and Rams will battle Nov. 22 at War Memorial Stadium. Kick-off will be at 7:30 p.m.
The third home game on national TV is the Mountain West opener versus UNLV on Saturday, Sept. 28. That’s one of the ESPN Network games, where the specific network and kick-off time are announced 12 days prior to the game date.
The other three TV appearances will be on the road.
The only other known kick-off time is UW’s game at San Diego State on Oct. 12. That game will be on CBS Sports Network with a start time of 8:30 p.m., Mountain Time.
The final two are back-to-back road games in November. The Pokes head to Boise State, Saturday, Nov. 9 and follow that with a trip to Utah State, Saturday, Nov. 16. Both games will air on an ESPN Network that will be determined in the future, as well as, those games start time.
Additional telecasts on a regional basis from AT&T SportsNet or from Stadium will be released at a later date. More game times will be revealed around those announcements. Also, games against non-conference opponents on the road are controlled by that institution’s conference television agreement, which means they may or may not be televised.
