LOGAN — The Utah State athletics department announced Thursday that six additional USU football games will be nationally televised this season. Now, nine of the Aggies’ 13 regular-season games will be aired on national television.

Of those nine, six will be on the ESPN networks, two more will be on CBS Sports Network and USU’s season opener at Tennessee on Aug. 31 will be broadcast on the SEC Network.

Only the Aggies’ home opener against Idaho State, a Sept. 20 showdown at Arkansas State and their in-state showdown with BYU on Oct. 3 are currently not slated for national television.

USU finished last season 9-5, including a Poinsettia Bowl win to end the season. The Aggies also extended the contract of head coach Matt Wells through the 2018 season last week.
