Sports Roundup: At least 7 Nevada Wolf Pack football games on TV
RENO – In his first year as head coach, Jay Norvell and the Nevada football team has had seven of its games selected for a national television broadcast so for in the 2017 season.
On Wednesday, the Mountain West Conference announced its national TV package with league partners ESPN and CBS Sports. The 44-game announcement included seven Wolf Pack games, including six MW games.

With Wednesday’s announcement, Nevada saw one of its games, an October conference game against Air Force, moved from Saturday to a 6:30 p.m. kickoff on Friday, Oct. 20. That game will be broadcast on CBS Sports, one of three games on the network this year for the Pack. Nevada’s games against Hawaii (Oct. 7) and San Diego State (Nov. 18) will also be on CBS Sports and both will begin at 7:30 p.m.
Nevada will play on one of the networks within the ESPN family no fewer than four times this season: Sept. 9 against Toledo, Oct. 14 against Colorado State, Nov. 4 against Boise State and Nov. 11 against San Jose State. Those games will generally have kickoff times determined 12 days before the game.
This is the first television schedule announcement by the MW for the 2017 season. Additional broadcasts by ROOT Sports and the Mountain West Network on Campus Insiders will be announced in the coming weeks.
