Why NMSU & Idaho is not on one of these listing?
Well they are probably going to be at or near the bottom of the conference standings. Also, not every team wants to play on weeknights.
This is just six games announced for ESPNU. More games on TV will be announced later.
Probably because the viewing market would be minimal.
