MIAMI, FL — College Football supporters will get a relatively low-key taste of the 2018-19 campaign, as four games are set to kick-start the busy season on Saturday (25).
ESPN and its family of networks will provide live coverage of two of the four games, while CBS Sports Network is also set to broadcast one of the action.
At the Aggie Memorial Stadium in Las Cruces, New Mexico State will entertain Wyoming and this game will be carried live on ESPN2 and streaming live on WatchESPN and ESPN3, starting at 10:00 pm ET.
According to ESPN’s Football Power Index, Wyoming has a 62.8 percent chance of starting the season with a win.
The Cowboys, who are returning eight starters from its impressive defensive unit a season ago, are well motivated to get the campaign underway.
Both teams will be hoping to start the new season the way they ended last term.
Wyoming thrashed Central Michigan 37-14 in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl to finish with an 8-5 record, while the Aggies collected a 26-20 overtime win over Utah State in the NOVA Home Loans Arizona Bowl to close out last season with a 7-6 overall record.
Saturday’s meeting will be just the second clash between Wyoming and New Mexico State in the two programs’ histories.
The Cowboys took the only previous meeting 47-0 in 1953 in Laramie.
Meanwhile, ESPN+ will stream the game between Rice and Prairie View from Rice Stadium in Houston, Texas.
Game time for this one is set for 7:00 pm ET.
The other college football games kicking off the new season are the clashes between Colorado State and Hawai’i at CSU Stadium in Fort Collins and Duquesne at UMass inside Warren McGuirk Alumni Stadium at Amherst, MA.
CBS Sports Network will have live coverage of the game between Colorado State and Hawai’i, starting at 7:30 pm ET.
Eleven Sports will stream the UMass v Duquesne battle, which gets going at 5:30 pm ET.
