CBS Sports has signed a multi-year deal to broadcast the Mountain West Conference Football Championship Game. CBS Sports will broadcast the inaugural title match-up live Saturday, Dec. 7, at 10 p.m., ET from the home stadium of the regular-season Mountain West divisional champion with the highest BCS ranking.

 

CBS Sports Network serves as the Mountain West's primary television partner and will air 23 games this season featuring MW teams, with CBS Sports airing one regular-season contest (Air Force vs. Navy) in addition to the championship match-up. CBS Sports' college football championship coverage on Dec. 7 begins earlier in the day with the SEC Championship (4 p.m., ET) from the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, Ga.

 

“The new Mountain West football structure, which will culminate in an exciting match-up between two divisional champions, is one of many recent initiatives for the conference as we enter our next era,” said Mountain West Commissioner Craig Thompson. “We are pleased that CBS Sports will serve as a tremendous platform for this marquee event, providing an opportunity to showcase the caliber of Mountain West football.”

 

“We’re thrilled to extend our relationship with the Mountain West and broadcast its inaugural football championship game,” said Dan Weinberg, senior vice president, programming, CBS Sports. “It’s a great addition to our college football programming and we look forward to providing fans with a full day of championship coverage for many years.”

 

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 José State and UNLV in the West Division
