The Boise State-Hawaii game has been set for 8:15 p.m. Oct. 3 on ESPN2, Boise State announced Monday.

The game being selected for ESPN2 means Boise State gets a $500,000 TV bonus from the Mountain West.

So far, the school also has earned $300,000 for the Washington game and $300,000 for the Air Force game. Times/channels haven’t been set yet for the Wyoming, UNLV and New Mexico games in late October and early November.
