Friday Night Lights In Boise State’s Future
The Boise State Broncos will once again play a few of their games on Friday Nights. The good news is that the games will be televised on ESPN and the CBS Sports Network. The early game to watch is the Thursday Night showdown when BYU visits the Blue on October 20th. The game will be televised on ESPN. The Broncos are not the only team in the Mountain West who will be playing on Friday Nights.
The Mountain West released a package of Friday football telecasts for the 2016 season. This initial slate of 10 games, which also includes one Thursday night broadcast, is set to be televised nationally on CBS Sports Network, ESPN and ESPN2.
Between the two broadcast partners, at least 44 football games will be televised in 2016 on their various national platforms. Additional broadcasts by CBS Sports Network, ESPN networks, ROOT SPORTS and the Mountain West Network powered by Campus Insiders will be announced in the near future.
