The Idaho Statesman is reporting that CBS will televise the inaugural Mountain West football championship game on Saturday, December 7, at 8 PM MT. That is also being reported on CBSSports.com and verifying. The agreement calls for a multiyear contract between CBS and the Mountain West.
The MW championship game will follow the SEC championship game also on CBS. The SEC game will kick off at 2 PM MT. The Big-10 and Pac-12 title games are also scheduled that day, but the Pac-12 game will kickoff at 5:45-6 PM, MT on either ESPN or ABC, and the Big-10 will be at 6:17 MT on FOX. The MW game is scheduled to be the last game of the day.
This will be the first ever Mountain West Championship in the new 12-team MW league. The game will feature a showdown between the winner of the Mountain Division against the winner of the West Division and played in the highest ranked team’s home stadium.
