The New Mexico Lobos football team has been a disappointment on the field for fans recently.

UNM has three wins in the past three seasons combined.

New head coach Bob Davie said he will turn the program around, but fans might not have a chance to watch the Lobos rebound on TV.

On Thursday, the Mountain West Conference released its national television schedule for the 2012 football season.

The Lobos were absent from the schedule.

Mountain West officials said it could have more TV games to announce in the coming weeks, but fans were still disappointed with the current schedule.

"I do think with the new coach, coach Davie, there's going to be a higher level of excitement than there has been in recent years, so it's a missed opportunity,” one Lobos fan said.

The past few seasons UNM has had its football games broadcast on the Mtn. Network.

But the sports channel is expected to go black in the coming months.

We tried to contact UNM officials about the snub, but so far we haven’t received a comment.
