COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – New Mexico’s home and season-opening football game against UTEP will kickoff at 6 p.m. and be broadcast by The Mountain West Network, powered by Campus Insiders. That game is the first of seven Saturday contests that will be broadcast live online exclusively on the MWN and CampusInsiders.com, announced today by the conference office.
The seven games marks the most live football games streamed exclusively by the Mountain West Network and Campus Insiders since the inception of the partnership. The MWN and Campus Insiders will also feature a variety of Mountain West-related news, analysis and content throughout the entire season.
Also, the Sept. 20 game at New Mexico State will be available via Aggie Vision, which ups UNM’s broadcast total to 11, with the only game currently not scheduled being Oct. 4 at UTSA. That game is expected to be broadcast, which would give UNM coverage on all 12 games.
“The Mountain West is a tremendous partner, and we look forward to building on last season’s success and once again providing a great schedule of football games to fans,” said Crowley Sullivan, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Campus Insiders. “Producing high-quality, live programming like Mountain West football is very important as Campus Insiders continues its growth and expansion into additional platforms and partnerships.”
In addition to these seven Campus Insiders-produced games, the Mountain West Network will also retain the digital streaming rights to the eight previously-announced ROOT SPORTS football telecasts. Digital streams of those games will be made available on the MWN in those areas that fall outside of both the ROOT SPORTS Rocky Mountain and Northwest territories, and any additional markets for which the games have been sublicensed to a local cable or broadcast network.
The MWN will also endeavor to carry streams from the games that currently remain untelevised and may be produced or streamed by the host institution or a local television provider.
