Air Force basketball to have 19 games broadcast this season

Published: October 9, 2013, 9:03 am, by Brent Briggeman

The Mountain West released its basketball television schedule early Wednesday, and it included 19 broadcasts for Air Force.

The Falcons will play nine times on ROOT Sports, four times on ESPN3, one game each on ESPNU, CBS Sports Network and channel 96 in Las Vegas and have three game streamed online on the Mountain West Network.

This means that, barring a change, Air Force will not play this season on a major network or either of ESPN’s top two networks.

The announced list might add nonconference road games, but in Air Force’s case the only game that could fall under that category would be a Dec. 21 contest at UC Davis.
