The 2009 Mountain West Conference football schedule was released today and is comprised of 72 games, including 36 conference match-ups. The 2009 schedule plays out over 13 weeks and concludes Thanksgiving weekend. Fifty-two of the 55 MWC-controlled games are set for Saturdays (95 percent), with only one of the remaining three contests moved for television purposes.

The non-conference schedule features 14 games against teams that earned bowl berths in 2008, including Clemson, Florida Atlantic, Florida State, Hawai`i, Minnesota, Navy, Nevada (two games), Oklahoma, Oregon, Oregon State, Texas, Texas Tech and Tulsa. Six opponents finished ranked in last year's final Top 25 polls (USA Today/AP) - #3/4 Texas, #5/5 Oklahoma, #9/10 Oregon, #12/12 Texas Tech, #19/18 Oregon State and #23/21 Florida State.

Mountain West Conference announces 2009 Football Schedule

The MWC will play 14 games against BCS automatic-qualifying conference opponents including six against the Big 12, three match-ups with both the ACC and Pac-10, and one each against the Big East and Big Ten. The remainder of the non-conference schedule features 10 games against the WAC, three match-ups with C-USA and one contest with the Sun Belt. There are two games scheduled against Football Bowl Subdivision independents Army and Navy, and six home dates with Football Championship Subdivision programs.

The 2009 schedule currently features a minimum of 49 telecasts that will be available on a national basis. CBS College Sports Network will air nine games and VERSUS is scheduled for eight telecasts. The entire slate of CBS College Sports Network and VERSUS games will be produced in high-definition (HD). The Mtn. will televise 30 games, again featuring a unique telecast schedule that includes triple-headers on select weekends to maximize institutional exposure and provide fans all the MWC football action.

The MWC anticipates additional television and kick time information for non-conference road games once those conferences finalize their schedules later this summer.

The Mountain West Conference kicks off the season and the TV slate Thursday, September 3, with defending league champion Utah hosting Utah State at 7 p.m. MT live on The Mtn. Seven of the eight remaining teams open the season on Saturday, September 5, while TCU begins its 2009 campaign on Saturday, September 12 at Virginia.

Live game coverage on VERSUS and CBS College Sports Network begins Saturday, September 12. Wyoming hosts Texas at 1:30 p.m. MT on VERSUS and UNLV welcomes Oregon State to Sam Boyd Stadium at 8 p.m. PT on CBS College Sports Network.

VERSUS and CBS College Sports Network are widely available on cable systems across the country and via satellite on DIRECTV (VERSUS-Channel 603/CBS C-Channel 613) and Dish Network (VERSUS-Channel 151/CBS C-Channel 152). The Mtn. is carried nationally by DIRECTV (Channel 616) and numerous cable operators representing over 200 municipalities in nine states.
