Colorado State Vs. Air Force Game To Be Broadcast On Altitude

The Colorado St. Rams and Air Force Falcons tilt on Sept. 29 has been picked up by Altitude and will be broadcast on the regional sports network at 12 p.m. MT. This news went under the radar, but was noticed by SB Nation's Mountain West blog, Mountain West Connection as they saw the scheduled event on the Altitude website when searching through their television schedule.

Neither school has announced that this game will be broadcast on Altitude, nor is it listed on the team's online schedule. Colorado State's athletic director Jack Graham announced back on July 20 that nine games would be broadcast locally on KTVD 20, and it was assumed that this would be one of those games.

There is also no word on whether KTVD 20 will simulcast this game in one way or another. Regardless, this is a step in the right direction for Air Force and Colorado State to get more games seen to a larger audience now that the Mtn. is no longer around.

KTVD 20 Will Broadcast 9 Colorado State Football Games, According To A Report

The Colorado St. Rams have been able to land nine more of their football games on television. That means that all 12 of their games will be shown on television. However, the remaining nine games will be shown locally on KTVD 20.

Colorado State athletic director Jack Graham had been working with Altitude and ROOT Sports to broadcast their games to a larger regional audience, but that did not work out. Even landing the games on local television is a win according to Graham:

"Nine of our football games will be on Channel 20. That's a big success, in my opinion. So, we were able to solve our problem ourselves without the assistance of the conference."

Allowing the local fan to see the game is great, but it does not allow fans who live on the outside of the Front Range will not be able to see these game. Even though The Mtn. has closed down it did allow for basically every game to be broadcast, and with that gone no one outside the area can see Colorado State football.

Also, landing nine games includes three road games which are against the Wyoming Cowboys, San Diego St. Aztecs and Air Force Falcons means that those games are more than likely not going to be picked by a regional or national carrier.

AUDIO: Colorado State AD Jack Graham Working To Get All Football Games Televised

With the Mtn. network shutting down it put a damper on the amount of Colorado St. Rams football games that would be televised. Currently, Colorado State has only three games that will be broadcast this season. Those three games are the Colorado game which is on FX, at San Jose State on ESPN3 and a home tilt against Boise State which will be broadcast on CBS Sports Network. When the Mtn. was around Colorado State could bank on having no less than 10 of their games on television.

Colorado State athletic director Jack Graham was on ESPN Radio 102.3 in Denver to discuss all of Colorado State athletics, but he also spent a few minutes talking about what the plan is to get more Colorado State football games on television.

Graham said that he has been working with ROOT Sports and Altitude to broadcast games on a regional basis, and said that not all but a number of games have already been picked up. However, Graham did not specify which of the home games have been selected.

Here is the complete interview, the television talks begins at the three minute mark:

2012 Mountain West Football TV Schedule: Colorado State Lands Only A Single Game

There were plenty of fans who disliked the Mtn. network for their lack of distribution, high definition and announcing crews. However, the one big plus was that basically every college football game would be shown on television. Now with the Mtn. gone one of the teams to take the biggest hit is the Colorado St. Rams who have only onaae game broadcast on a national basis.

That one game comes on the road against the Boise St. Broncos on Saturday Nov. 17 on NBC Sports Network. Now, had the Mtn. still been around every home game was likely to be shown and at worst five of the six, but now just the one game.

The opening game against the Colorado Buffaloes will be on television since it is the Buffs year as the rights holder and that game will more than likely be on one of the Pac-12 Networks.

As for the rest of the games, CBS Sports owns the rights and can still shop them to other networks.

Here is a quote from the press release regarding additional games:

"This is the first phase of plans for the 2012-13 academic year," said Mountain West Commissioner Craig Thompson. "We are working with CBS Sports Network and member institutions to map out regional and local plans for the remaining 2012 football inventory. We anticipate announcing additional telecasts from these efforts in the coming weeks."

So, there is a chance that more games could be broadcast either on a local level or even the possibility of putting more games on ESPN or another network such as Fox Sports or Altitude.

This obviously can not make Colorado State fans feel too happy from going from seeing nearly every game on television to the possibility only two. So for those who criticized the Mtn. network are probably wishing that it was still around.

The one huge omission is the Border War game against the Wyoming Cowboys which currently is not slated to be on national television.
