It won’t be hard to watch the Wolf Pack basketball team on television this season.

The Mountain West released its TV schedule for the 2018-19 season, and 29 of Nevada’s 31 regular-season games will be televised. The only two that are not currently scheduled to be broadcast are contests with USC and Utah, although both of those are likely to be picked up by the Pac-12 Network, ESPN or Fox Sports 1.

Nevada will have 12 games televised on CBS Sports Network; five on ESPNU; three each on ESPN2 and ESPN3; two on Fox Sports 1; one each on ESPNews and Stadium; and four on a to-be-determined ESPN family of network channels. The Wolf Pack is a big draw this season as a projected top-10 team in the nation.

Nevada’s ESPN2 games are against Arizona State at the Air Force Reserve Hall of Fame Classic at the Staples Center in Los Angeles; at UNLV; and at Air Force. Its games on ESPNU are at home against Little Rock; against Grand Canyon in the Jerry Colangelo Classic in Phoenix; its game at New Mexico; and its home games against Utah State and Air Force. All 18 of Nevada’s Mountain West games will be broadcast. Nevada is the two-time defending MW champs.

Three MW road games -- at Boise State, UNLV and Air Force -- were moved to Tuesdays to accommodate television broadcasts. Nevada also had some home games pushed back to an 8 p.m. tip-off to accommodate television.
