"It's great to be back in business with the Mountain West. They are a deep, high quality and competitive conference," said Burke Magnus, ESPN senior vice president of college sports. "We look forward to once again showcasing the league's institutions, student-athletes and compelling storylines across multiple sports and ESPN platforms."
"The Mountain West and its member institutions are very pleased to be re-establishing a television partnership with ESPN," said commissioner Craig Thompson. "We had a very successful relationship during the first years of the Conference and have stayed connected over the years through our bowl agreements and other interactions. This new agreement is mutually beneficial and offers great promise for the seasons ahead."
