On Monday, ESPN announced the November 30th football game between the University of New Mexico and Boise State in Boise, Idaho will be broadcast on ESPN2.

As part of the new television agreement with the Mountain West Conference, UNM will receive $500,000 for appearing on the network.

The new tv contract between the MWC and ESPN states the league will pay $300,000 for conference-controlled games that air on designated national networks (ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, ESPN and ESPN2). There is an additional $200,000 payment for Saturday games on those networks.

The Lobos are scheduled to play Fresno State this Saturday on ESPNews.
