Thanks to the Mountain West Conferences new TV deal with CSTV and the new partnership with The mtn (Mountain West Sports Network), the Pokes will on TV nearly every week this upcoming season.
They will be on CSTV's national broadcast three times,
"Included in CSTV's 18 MWC national telecasts are three games featuring the Wyoming Cowboys. Wyoming's home games versus Colorado State on Saturday, Oct. 21 and San Diego State on Saturday, Nov. 4, as well as UW's road game at BYU on Thursday, Nov. 9 will be featured on CSTV's national package this coming fall."
The mtn is the first regional sports network devoted to just one college conference and Wyoming will be featured on it's first ever broadcast,
"The mtn. -- Mountain West Sport Network will carry 36 MWC football games beginning with the upcoming 2006 college football season. The mtn. will launch later in the summer of `06, and its first college football telecast will originate from Wyoming's Jonah Field at War Memorial Stadium on Sept. 2 when the Cowboys host non-conference foe Utah State."
Wyoming will also be featured on The mtn on six other occasions,
"The Cowboys will be featured seven times on The mtn. during the 2006 season. In addition to the inaugural telecast on Sept. 2, Wyoming's home games versus: Boise State on Sept. 16; Air Force on Sept. 23; and Utah on Oct. 14 will also be telecast regionally. Three Cowboy road games will be part of the 2006 television schedule on The mtn. Those three games are: the Oct. 7 contest at New Mexico; the Oct. 28 game at TCU; and the regular-season finale at UNLV on Nov. 18. The game at UNLV has the possibility of being switched to a CSTV national network telecast. That decision won't be made until after the 2006 season has begun."
That means only non-conference games against Syracuse and Virginia will not be televised. I still haven't figured out exactly how one obtains CSTV, but assuming it is readily available this should be a very cool deal.
