Utah State football already has its first-ever Sunday night game to look forward to in the 2014 season. On Thursday morning, the Aggies learned they'll also have two nationally televised Friday games against Mountain West opponents this fall.
Utah State will play at Wyoming on Nov. 7 at 6 p.m. MT, and then host San Jose State on Nov. 21 at 7:30 p.m. MT. Both Friday night games will be on ESPN2.
The Mountain West has 11 Friday games slated to appear on ESPN networks or CBS Sports Network. The team airing the most in that package is San Diego State, which has three Friday games.
By virtue of appearing in Friday primetime, Utah State will get exposure going against just a handful of other games broadcast on the same day. The Aggies also earn league bonuses for appearing on ESPN2.
The Mountain West still has to announce its television schedule, which could televise up to 48 conference-controlled games with its various national partners. The remainder of the games are expected to be played on Saturday, the conference said in a news release.
