Laramie, Wyo. (May 29, 2014) – The PAC-12 Conference announced on Thursdaytelevision coverage and game times for several early season games, including the Sept. 13game to be played between the Wyoming Cowboys and Oregon Ducks in Eugene, Ore. The Cowboys and Ducks game is scheduled to kick off at Noon, Mountain Time (11 a.m., Pacific) and will be televised on the PAC-12 Network. At least seven Wyoming football games in 2014 are now scheduled to be televised on a national television network.

The Wyoming Cowboys will be featured on at least five ESPN network telecasts as part of the 2014 Mountain West Conference television package with ESPN. Four WyomingSaturday games selected for television by the ESPN networks will combine with a Friday, Nov. 7 home game versus Utah State on ESPN2 to give the Cowboys five ESPN appearances during the conference portion of the schedule.

On Saturday, Oct. 18, Wyoming’s home game versus San Jose State will be carried by the ESPN networks. The one Wyoming road game selected was the Saturday, Nov. 1 game at Fresno State. ESPN2 will carry the Friday, Nov. 7 game between Wyoming and Utah State, and the final ESPN network telecast of a Wyoming home game in 2014 will be on Saturday, Nov. 22 versus Boise State.
ESPN is expected to provide the network designation and game time for the Sept. 6Wyoming-Air Force game when it releases its plans for the start of the season.
