Lobo FB TV schedule filling out: UPDATED

The New Mexico Football team did not get any love from the Mountain West Conference's National TV partners when they set the TV schedule earlier in the summer. But the Lobos regional schedule is beginning to fill out.

UNM's game at New Mexico State has been slated to appear on the Aggie's outlet Aggievision for some time. But four other Lobo opponents -- two non-conference and two from the Mountain West -- announced plans to televise their games against New Mexico this week.


New Mexico's game Sept. 8 at Texas will be televised on UT's ESPN-run Longhorn Network at 7 pm (6 pm Mountain Time). The Lobos game Sept. 15 at Texas Tech is slated to be televised on Fox College Sports at 6 pm (5 pm Mountain Time.)


On Friday, word came that UNM's games at Colorado State and Hawaii would also be televised. The Lobos-Rams season finale on Nov. 24 will be televised regionally on Root Sports Rocky Mountain while UNM's game at Hawaii on Oct. 13 will be televised as part of Hawaii's pay-per-view package with Oceanic/Time Warner Cable.


Unfortunately for Lobo fans the Longhorn Network is not carried by on either DirecTV or Dish network on satellite or on any of the major cable carriers in New Mexico – Comcast, Cable One, Charter Communications or US Cable. It also appears to be available live at longhornnetwork.com (though only through select Internet providers who also provide ESPN3.com).


Likewise Lobo fans may have no option to watch the Hawaii game on television as the Warriors' pay-per-view channel is only available on the Islands. Lobo fans do have an option to catch the game on pay-per-view Internet through Oceanic's feed on hawaiiathletics.com.


Fox College Sports is available on DirecTV (Ch. 617, 623 or 626) and Comcast (Ch. 262) on but not Dish Network or Cable One.


AggieVision games will be shown on a tape-delay in the Las Cruces area, but will be shown live on Comcast (click here to see what channel in what city), DishTV and DirecTV (through Fox Sports Arizona and Altitude.) AggieVision is also available live on ESPN3.com.


Root Sports, which is owned by DirecTV Sports Networks, is available on DirecTV (Ch. 683), Dish Network (Ch. 414 for standard definition and Ch. 5414 for high definition) and Comcast (Ch. 261).


The Gazette in Colorado Springs reported this week that Air Force is working on televising its home game against New Mexico on Sat. Oct. 20 but no details have emerged yet. No details have emerged about telecasts of the Lobos' road game at UNLV (Nov. 3).


All Lobo football games will be broadcast live on the Lobo Radio Network in both English (on 770 AM KKOB) and Spanish (on KRZY 1450 AM). The Lobo Radio Network is available in 13 New Mexico cities – Albuquerque (KKOB AM), Clovis (KCLV 1240 AM), Carlsbad (KATK 740 AM), Farmington (KLJH 107.1 FM), Gallup (KYVA 1230 AM), Grants (KMIN 980 AM), Hobbs (KWMW 105.1 FM), KBQL 92.7 FM), Ruidoso (KRUI 1490 AM), Santa Rosa (KSSR 1340 AM) and Socorro (KMXQ 92.9 FM), the newest affiliate in the network.
