Eighteen days ago, the Mountain West Conference announced the return of football, much to the delight of Utah State Aggie fans everywhere.
The conference then released USU’s opponents for the 2020 college football season, included among them Boise State, San Diego State, Nevada, Fresno State, Wyoming, New Mexico, Air Force and Colorado State.
Lacking, however, were specifics about the games themselves, most importantly game times and television broadcast schedules. On Tuesday, the MWC released that information, unveiling its full national television package for the upcoming season.
Four of Utah State’s eight games will be played on Thursday nights, two of those at Maverik Stadium.
Four of the Aggies’ eight games this season will be broadcast on the CBS Sports Network (CBSSN). The other four will be televised on either Fox Sports 1 (FS1) or Fox Sports 2 (FS2).
