BOISE -- Officials say 11 of the 12 regularly-scheduled 2013 Boise State Football games will appear on the ESPN, CBS Sports, and ABC networks.

The Mountain West's latest announcement also gives additional details in the role ESPN will play in televising the Boise State Football Team.

The MWC says ESPN will broadcast four additional BSU games on its suite of networks, including ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, and ESPN3, a web-based platform.

BSU officials say it's not immediately clear which sub-network the games will air on. Sports Information Director Joe Nickell says fans will have a short notice.

"The big thing is that they could be selected through the season within a 12-day window," Nickell told KTVB.

However, exactly which games will be televised is clear:

MWC officials say the Broncos' home games against Tennessee-Martin (Sept. 7), Southern Miss (Sept. 28), Wyoming (Nov. 16) and New Mexico (Nov. 30) will each be televised by ABC, ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU or ESPN3.

As previously announced, ESPN will also televise the Broncos' home game against Air Force (Sept. 13; 6 p.m.), and road games against Fresno State (Sept. 20; 7 p.m.) and BYU (Oct. 25; 6 p.m.).

Nickell says the only game still up in the air is BSU's season opener.

"We don't know about the Washington game yet," Nickell said, adding that the season opening game against the Huskies is officially in the PAC 12, and may be subject to different terms.
