The Mountain West announced on Friday that four Boise State football games will be televised by CBS Sports Network this fall.

The Broncos road matchups at Utah State on Saturday, Oct. 12, at Colorado State on Saturday, Nov. 2 and at San Diego State on Saturday, Nov. 23, along with their home game against Nevada on Saturday, Oct. 19, have all been picked up for national coverage.

While ESPN owns the rights to all Bronco home games, CBS owns the rights to all Bronco road games. The new television contract allows the networks to swap one game per year with each other.

With that in mind, as ESPN announced on Tuesday, they will carry Boise State at Fresno State on Friday, Sept. 20, while CBS-SN selected to broadcast the Nevada game in Boise.

Seven of Boise State's 12 games this fall have now been selected for national television coverage, but ESPN must air as least more according to the new television contract.

The Mountain West said that additional games on the CBS and ESPN mediums will be announced at a later date.
