LARAMIE, Wyo. (July 1, 2024) –– TNT Sports and the Mountain West Conference have reached a multi-year agreement for a full slate of live college football games to air exclusively on truTV and Max beginning this season. truTV and Max will present 14 Mountain West college football games during the inaugural season,

Wyoming’s home opener against Idaho on Saturday, Sept. 7 is slated for a 1:30 p.m. start in a contest on truTV and streamed on Max. Wyoming’s contest at New Mexico on Saturday, Nov. 2 will also be televised on truTV and is set for a 2 p.m. start.

“TNT Sports provides the Mountain West with a third national television partner to showcase the outstanding student-athletes across the league,” said MW Commissioner Gloria Nevarez. “TNT Sports has always been a leader in sports broadcasting and adding one of the top conferences in the FBS to its lineup will certainly be a benefit to MW and college football fans across the country."

This programming brings additional live sports programming to truTV – which debuted a dedicated TNT Sports programming block in primetime earlier this year – and Max. This will also mark the return of college football to TNT Sports, which last televised games in 2006.

“We are excited to partner with the Mountain West and bring these compelling college football games to truTV and Max,” said Raphael Poplock, Senior Vice President of Acquisitions, Business Development and Partnerships, TNT Sports. “With this agreement, we will further expand our live sports programming on truTV while creating additional exposure for the Mountain West and its student-athletes across our TNT Sports platforms.”

More information about TNT Sports’ coverage of Mountain West college football will be announced leading up to the start of the season.

The additional broadcast slate will supplement the MW’s previously announced 49-game national television package on CBS Television Network, CBS Sports Network, FOX and FOX Networks.
