Mountain West TV Schedule Heavily Favors UNLV, SDSU

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The Mountain West Conference on Thursday announced the men’s basketball schedule for the coming 2012-13 season.

While the television schedule that includes at least 60 games on the air for league teams didn’t actually tell us anything new in terms of UNM Lobos games on TV, it did show who the league and network officials seem to think the top dogs are in the Mountain West.

UNLV will have 24 televised games, San Diego State will be on 22 televised games and UNM has the third most televised games with 15, although it should be noted the league’s official release on Thursday reflects only a dozen of those games and did not include the games to be aired on Fox Sports during the Nov. 16-19 Paradise Jam tournament in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Here is a link to UNM’s upcoming hoops schedule w/ the TV games we know about: 2012-13 UNM Men’s Basketball Schedule

Of course the MW’s list doesn’t reflect all games as some could be added throughout the season and doesn’t include local-only broadcasts where those may occur. It also doesn’t count NCAA Tournament games since, obviously, we don’t yet know which teams will play in those.

So here, according to the MW news release, are the number of televised games per MW team this season (mind you the news release reflected just 12 games on TV for UNM when the school reports that number to be at least 15):

  • UNLV 24
  • San Diego State 22
  • UNM 15
  • Colorado State 10
  • Nevada 9
  • Wyoming 5
  • Air Force 5
  • Fresno State 5
  • Boise State 5
