The Boise State football team will kick off at 8:15 p.m. on ESPN2 against Wyoming on Nov. 16 at Bronco Stadium.

The Broncos and Cowboys will each earn a $500,000 national television appearance bonus from the Mountain West because the game is on ESPN2 and on a Saturday. The bonuses are paid from the Mountain West’s television contracts. With the scheduling of the Wyoming game on ESPN2, the Broncos have earned $1.1 million in national TV bonuses this season.

The Broncos will appear on an ESPN channel for its game against New Mexico. Unless the game is on ESPN or ESPN2, it will not count toward the national TV bonus.

Boise State is 18-1 on ESPN2 since joining the Football Bowl Subdivision in 1996.
