(Laramie, Wyo.) – The Mountain West Network, powered by Campus Insiders, announced Tuesday its broadcast schedule for the 2014 football season.  Seven Saturday contests will be broadcast live online exclusively on the MWN and CampusInsiders.com. This marks the most live football games streamed exclusively by the Mountain West Network andCampus Insiders since the inception of the partnership.  One of the seven games selected by the Mountain West Network was Wyoming’s Sept. 20 home game versus Florida Atlantic, which will kick off at 2 p.m., Mountain Time.

      “The Mountain West is a tremendous partner, and we look forward to building on last season’s success and once again providing a great schedule of football games to fans,” said Crowley Sullivan, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Campus Insiders. “Producing high-quality, live programming like Mountain West football is very important as Campus Insiders continues its growth and expansion into additional platforms and partnerships.”
