ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The Mountain West Conference made it official on Tuesday, announcing that the Friday, Nov. 8 football game between Air Force and New Mexico at University Stadium will televised on ESPNU.
The Lobos-Falcons game is part of a seven-game Mountain West package on ESPN networks this season, the result of an agreement making ESPN the secondary rights holder for MWC-controlled football games. CBS Sports Network remains the primary rights holder. The CBS Sports MWC lineup will be announced later.
Tuesday’s announcement constitutes a step forward for UNM, which last season was the only Mountain West football team not to appear on national TV.
