Mountain West Week One – Preview, TV, Streaming, Start Time, Betting Line

The 2016 season started a week earlier than everyone in the Mountain West Conference as Hawai’i faced off versus California in Sydney, Australia. This week, everyone is in action with many teams scheduling a cupcake to start the seasons.

 

Weber State at Utah State:

  • Start Time: 8:00 PM EST. Thursday, September 1.
  • Location: Romney Stadium, Logan, Utah
  • TV: Mountain West Sports Network/Campus Insiders
  • Streaming: Here.
  • Radio: Utah State: Here. Weber State: Here.
  • Records: Utah State: 0-0. Weber State: 0-0. Utah State leads the all-time series 13-1.
  • Live Stats: Here.
  • Line: No line.

This is a nice warm up game for the Aggies. AS long as it does not go along the lines of the near loss to Southern Utah last fall, Utah State should be ready for a tough trip to Los Angeles to face USC in week two.

 

South Dakota at New Mexico:

  • Start Time: 9:00 PM EST. Thursday, September 1.
  • Location: University Stadium , Albuquerque, New Mexico
  • TV: Root Sports
  • Streaming: N/A
  • Radio: New Mexico: Here. South Dakota: Here.
  • Records: New Mexico: 0-0. South Dakota: 0-0. This is the first meeting between these programs.
  • Live Stats: N/A
  • Line: No line.

Coming off of a surprise bowl season in 2015, the Lobos have a fairly pedestrian matchup with FCS foe South Dakota. Getting a win and staying healthy are the goals for New Mexico in anticipation of a week two battle with New Mexico State.

 

Jackson State at UNLV:

  • Start Time: 10:00 PM EST. Thursday, September 1.
  • Location: Sam Boyd Stadium, Las Vegas, NV
  • TV: Mountain West Sports Network/Campus Insiders
  • Streaming: Here.
  • Radio: Jackson State: Here. UNLV: Here.
  • Records: Jackson State: 0-0. UNLV: 0-0. UNLV leads the all-time series 1-0.
  • Live Stats: Here.
  • Line: No line.    

Another warm up game versus an FCS opponent, the Rebels should easily handle Jackson State in week one. UNLV needs to figure out its quarterback situation soon with a week two trip to UCLA sitting right around the corner.

 

Colorado State vs Colorado:

  • Start Time: 8:00 PM EST. Friday, September 2.
  • Location: Sports Authority Field, Denver, Colorado
  • TV: ESPN
  • Streaming: WatchESPN
  • Radio: Colorado State: Here. Colorado: Here.
  • Records: Colorado State: 0-0. Colorado: 0-0. Colorado lead the all-time series is tied 64-23-2.
  • Live Stats: Here.
  • Line: Colorado State: +10. Over/Under: 56.5.

Cal Poly at Nevada:

  • Start Time: 9:30 PM EST. Friday, September 2.
  • Location: Mackay Stadium, Reno, Nevada

  • Streaming: N/A
  • Radio: Cal Poly: Here. Nevada: Here.
  • Records: Cal Poly: 0-0. Nevada: 0-0. Nevada leads the all-time series 6-3.
  • Live Stats: Here.
  • Line: No line.

Normally, this game would seem like a breeze. Instead, Cal Poly is slowly improving and just missed out on a much better season that their record indicates last fall. Nevada should cruise and need to take care of the FCS opponent quickly with Notre Dame waiting in the wings.

 

Boise State at Louisiana:

  • Start Time: 12:00 PM EST. Saturday, September 3.
  • Location: Cajun Field, Lafayette, Louisiana
  • TV: ESPN3/American Sports Network

  • Live Stats: Here.
  • Line: Hawai’I: +40.5. Over/Under: 54.5.

After looking very inconsistent in a 30-point loss to Cal last week, The Rainbow Warriors are making another long trek, this time to Ann Arbor, to face a preseason top ten program in Michigan.

 

Abilene Christian at Air Force:

  • Start Time: 2:00 PM EST. Saturday, September 3.
  • Location: Falcon Stadium, USAF Academy, Colorado
  • TV: Campus Insiders

  • Records: Abilene Christian: 0-0. Air Force: 0-0. This is the first meeting between these two programs.
  • Live Stats: Here.
  • Line: No line.

Nate Romine needs some time to get comfortable under center in game situations after coming back from a rough injury last fall. Abilene Christian should give Romine and company a solid workout before the Falcons hit a three-game stretch of 2015 bowl teams in Georgia State, Utah State, and Navy. 

 

San Jose State at Tulsa:

  • Start Time: 7:00 PM EST. Saturday, September 3.
  • Location: Chapman Stadium, Tulsa, Oklahoma

  • Live Stats: Here.
  • Line: Fresno State: +28. Over/Under: 62.

Rather than following the trend of the majority of the MWC and scheduling a cupcake in week one, the Bulldogs instead head to Lincoln to face Nebraska. This game will not go well for Fresno State.

 

New Hampshire at San Diego State:

  • Start Time: 8:30 PM EST. Saturday, September 3.
  • Location: Qualcomm Stadium, San Diego, California
  • TV: N/A

The Aztecs would love nothing more than to see this season get started better than in 2015. With a visit from California and back to back trips to Northern Illinois and South Alabama, it is essential to get the entire team started hot in week one.

 

Northern Illinois at Wyoming:

  • Start Time: 10:30 PM EST. Saturday, September 3.
  • Location: War Memorial Stadium , Laramie, Wyoming
  • TV: CBSSN
