The Boise State football game Oct. 6 at Southern Miss will air nationally on Fox Sports Net (Root Sports in Boise) or FX, according to Fox.

The game time has not been set. Fox has reserved time slots for 10 a.m. Mountain on both stations and at 1:30 p.m. on Fox Sports Net.

Root Sports is not part of the Fox network, but has an agreement to carry the Fox Sports Net college football package.

The Southern Miss announcement leaves one game on the schedule without a TV home — the Sept. 29 game at New Mexico. However, that game is expected to be televised.

Boise State has three games slated for ESPN properties this season, five for the NBC Sports Network and two for the CBS Sports Network.

Here is the schedule:

Fri., Aug. 31 at Michigan State, 6 p.m. (ESPN)

Sat., Sept. 15 vs. Miami (Ohio), 2 p.m. (NBC Sports Network)

Thurs., Sept. 20 vs. BYU, 7 p.m. (ESPN)

Sat., Sept. 29 at New Mexico, TBD (No TV announced at this time; Mountain West controls TV rights)

Sat., Oct. 6 at Southern Miss, TBD (FSN/FX)

Sat., Oct. 13 vs. Fresno State, 1:30 p.m. (NBC Sports Network)

Sat., Oct. 20 vs. UNLV, 1:30 p.m. (NBC Sports Network)

Sat., Oct. 27 at Wyoming, 1:30 p.m. (CBS Sports Network)

Sat., Nov. 3 vs. San Diego State, 8:30 p.m. (CBS Sports Network)

Sat., Nov. 10 at Hawaii, 5 p.m. (NBC Sports Network)

Sat., Nov. 17 vs. Colorado State, 1:30 p.m. (NBC Sports Network)

Sat., Dec. 1 at Nevada, TBD (ABC, ESPN or ESPN2)

What about radio?

Live in eastern Idaho....

Probably will listen on radio....

Bronco Vision??

What about Bronco Vision?

bronco vision? Is that the computer deal ya buy I had for few---

years that I quit buying it after we joined MWC. I bought it so I could watch some games while in a motel room. Wasted that 79.00 or whatever it was. They couldnt show it seeing it was a MWC game? I did get it on the radio part though-----geez

I don't get Fox...

Whether I receive them or not I JUST DON'T GET THEM


You fry wants with that?


Yeah...why so many do is truly baffling?!


Lets face it, the MWC is not happy with us, we are going to get every sh** channel they can give us. I'm just glad ESPN will pickup our non-MWC games.

Dear Horribly Underinformed,

The previous network called The MTN was razed for mining.

Any network for you is a blessing.

The oppressive running cable dogs and their one cabal gather none of my peat bog.


You fry wants with that?


This game is owned by Conference USA, not the MW, so the game was distributed through the CUSA TV deal. And two of the three games on ESPN are owned by the MW (Boise State home games vs. BYU and Nevada).

Good info

Thanks Chad

Ya got me

Thanks Chad, yup I should have known that.

Nothing matters now...

Kevin Richert is talking about salmon. We're all gonna die.


You fry wants with that?

Who cares?

Richert is a know-nothing hack.

You are correct, sir!


You fry wants with that?
