Seneca Riggins, Townsquare Media

At least seven Wyoming Cowboys football games will be televised nationally during the upcoming 2017 season.

The Mountain West announced Wednesday these include home games against Oregon, Hawai’i, New Mexico and Colorado State. The UW road games selected are Boise State, Air Force and San Jose State.

The Mountain West and its national TV partners, CBS Sports Network (CBSSN) and ESPN Networks, unveiled 44 games that will air on different platforms. Among those are seven for the Pokes.

Wyoming’s home game against the Oregon Ducks will be on CBS Sports Network on Sept. 16 with kick-off at 5 p.m. The next week, Sept. 23, the Cowboys’ conference opener versus the Hawai’i Rainbow Warriors will be aired on an ESPN Network. When the New Mexico Lobos visit Laramie for Wyoming’s Homecoming game on Oct. 28 that game will also air on an ESPN Network. The annual ‘Border War’ on Nov. 4 against Colorado State at War Memorial Stadium will be a 5 p.m. game time on CBS Sports Network.

The three road games chosen at Boise State on Oct. 21, at Air Force on Nov. 11 and the regular-season finale at San Jose State on Nov. 25 will all be on TV. Those will be on one of the ESPN Networks.

Game times and the specific ESPN Network (ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, etc.) are typically announced 12 days before the game date.

Additional TV games from ROOT SPORTS, the Mountain West Network from Campus Insiders and any other network will be released at a later date. That includes the Cowboys’ opener at Iowa on Sept. 2.
