Colorado Springs, Colo.----- In the Mountain West's second announcement of network television assignments, the CBS Sports Network will televise five San Jose State University football games live nationally.
To accommodate the CBS Sports Network, four of the cablecasts, all Spartan home games will have a 7:30 p.m. kickoff time for prime time viewership in the Pacific Time Zone and late-night college football fans in the remaining three continental time zones.
The September 17 non-conference game vs. Utah, the October 15 contest vs. Nevada, the October 29 encounter with UNLV and the November 19 game with Air Force now are part of the CBS Sports Network college football offerings this season.
In addition, the November 29 game at Fresno State is assigned a 12:30 p.m. (PT) start time for CBS Sports network's coverage.
With today's announcement, seven of the Spartans' 12 regular season games will be carried by a national cable carrier. ESPN2 is televising the October 21 game at San Diego State and the November 4 contest at Boise State.
Since joining the Mountain West for football in the 2013 season, 13 San Jose State games including the AutoNation Cure Bowl win over Georgia State were carried by the CBS Sports Network.
It is possible that any of the Spartans' five remaining regular-season contests also could be televised. These games are the September 3 game at Tulsa, the home opener versus Portland State in Spartan Stadium on September 10, the September 24 contest at Iowa State, the October 8 Homecoming Game vs. Hawaii, and the October 15 game at New Mexico.
