Sports Authority has signed on as the title sponsor of the 2014 Mountain West Football Championship Game, the MWC announced today.
The 2014 Sports Authority Mountain West Football Championship will be played on Saturday, Dec. 6 at 10pm ET. The game, which will be nationally televised by CBS, will pit the winners of the Mountain Division and the West Division at the home stadium of the higher ranked team.
“We couldn’t be more excited to have Sports Authority on board as title sponsor-a premier, national brand that shares our love of sports,” said Mountain West Commissioner Craig Thompson. “We value the support of Sports Authority and look forward to the football championship.”
“We are thrilled to sponsor the Mountain West Football Championship and continue to engage recreational athletes and families with the Sports Authority brand,” said Michael E. Foss, Chief Executive Officer of Sports Authority. “Sports Authority believes in bringing together communities through the power of play and we encourage everyone to discover the good in sports.”
Last season, the Mountain West Conference split into two divisions and staged their inaugural football championship game. Fresno State, the winner of the West Division and ranked 24th, hosted Mountain Division winner Utah State. The Bulldogs defeated the Aggies 24-17 before an announced crowd of 31,362.
