Utah State's [University] football game at San Jose State Friday, Sept. 27, will be part of the seven-game ESPN-Mountain West television package for the 2013 season it was announced Tuesday [April 23, 2013]. USU's game at SJSU will be televised nationally on ESPN at 7 p.m. (MT).

 

During the past two seasons, Utah State has had 14 football games broadcast on the ESPN family of networks consisting of ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, ESPN3 and ESPN Regional TV, including back-to-back appearances in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl.

 

The Aggies and Spartans have played one another 35 times dating back to 1940, which is USU’s seventh-oldest rivalry. Of the 35 meetings between the two schools, 23 have been as league foes as both were members of the Big West Conference from 1978-92 and the Western Athletic Conference from 2005-12. USU won the last meeting against the Spartans in San Jose in 2012, 49-27. San Jose State ended its 2012 season with a 29-20 win against Bowling Green in the Military Bowl.

 

Today's announcement [April 23] is the first under a new agreement with ESPN as the second MW national television rights holder for Conference-controlled football games. CBS Sports Network remains the primary rights holder for the Mountain West.

 

Other games involving Mountain West teams that will be televised by one of the ESPN Networks include Air Force at Boise State Friday, Sept. 13, at 6 p.m. MT (ESPN); Boise State at Fresno State Friday, Sept. 20, at 7 p.m. MT (ESPN); Nevada at San Diego State Friday, Oct. 4, at 7 p.m. MT (ESPN); Air Force at New Mexico Friday, Nov. 8, at 7 p.m. MT (ESPNU); UNLV at Air Force Thursday, Nov. 21, at 7:30 p.m. MT (ESPNU); and Navy at San Jose State Friday, Nov. 22, at 7:30 p.m. MT (ESPN2).

 

Between the two networks, up to 44 football games will be televised this year on their various platforms. Broadcast details for the Mountain West package on CBS Sports Network, as well as additional telecasts on the ESPN networks, will be announced at a later date.

 

Beginning in the fall of 2013, MW football membership will include Air Force, Boise State, Colorado State, New Mexico, Utah State and Wyoming in the Mountain Division and Fresno State, Hawai`i, Nevada, San Diego State, San Jose State and UNLV in the West Division.

 

Utah State will open the 2013 season Thursday, Aug. 29, at Utah and play its first Mountain West game the following weekend at Air Force Saturday, Sept.7. USU's first home game of the 2013 campaign will be Saturday, Sept. 14, against Weber State, while its first home Mountain West game will be Saturday, Oct. 12, against Boise State.
