Utah State fans: Check your TV right now.
Do you have CBS Sports Network? ESPNU? Root Sports? Do you have a computer that can stream ESPN3? Mountain West Network?
Yes to all? Great. You'll be able to watch 18 - yes, Eighteen with an "e" - Utah State basketball games this season on the Mountain West's various broadcasting platforms.
The Mountain West announced its full TV schedule Wednesday morning, and nearly three-fourths of its conference games will be televised, with even more available streaming. The schedule has been out for a bit in piecemeal format, but this is the first master schedule available to the public.
Utah State will enjoy nine home games that will be broadcast, while a total of 15 Aggies conference games will appear on air. In an 18-game conference schedule, viewers who can't get out to the game won't miss much.
In fact, literally every Utah State game from Jan. 18 on will be broadcast, a total of 14 straight. Take a look at the Aggies' schedule:
Friday, Nov. 8 • USC at Utah State, 7 p.m. (CBS Sports Network)Tuesday, Nov. 12 • SUU at Utah State, 7 p.m. (Root Sports)Saturday, Nov. 23 • Miss. State at Utah State, 7 p.m. (Mountain West Network)Wednesday, Jan. 1 • Utah State at Air Force, 6 p.m. (Root Sports)Saturday, Jan. 18 • Utah State at Boise State, 7 p.m. (ESPN3)Wednesday, Jan. 22 • Utah State at UNLV, 9 p.m. (CBS Sports Network)Saturday, Jan. 25 • San Diego State at Utah State, 9 p.m. (ESPNU/ESPN3)Tuesday, Jan. 28 • New Mexico at Utah State, 9 p.m. (ESPNU)Saturday, Feb. 1 • Utah State at Wyoming, 4 p.m. (Root Sports)Wednesday, Feb. 5 • Nevada at Utah State, 7 p.m. (Root Sports)Saturday, Feb. 8 • Boise State at Utah State, 4 p.m. (CBS Sports Network)Tuesday, Feb. 11 • Utah State at Colorado State, 7:15 p.m. (CBS Sports Network)Saturday, Feb. 15 • UNLV at Utah State, 2 p.m. (CBS Sports Network)Tuesday, Feb. 18 • Utah State at San Diego State, 9 p.m. (ESPNU/ESPN3)Saturday, Feb. 22 • Fresno State at Utah State, 7 p.m. (Mountain West Network)Tuesday, Feb. 25 • Utah State at New Mexico, 7 p.m. (CBS Sports Network)Saturday, March 1 • Utah State at San Jose State, 6 p.m. (Root Sports)Wednesday March 5 • Wyoming at Utah State, 8 p.m. (Root Sports)
Eighteen games on the airwaves is mostly likely a program-best for Utah State. The Aggies, voted fifth in the Mountain West preseason poll, will have to shape up by January if they want to make a good impression with viewers.
Utah State wanted the increased exposure in a new conference - now they've got it.
