Three national TV appearances await the UNLV football team this year, the Mountain West announced Thursday.

The Rebels open the slate of national TV games by hosting Minnesota on Thursday, Aug. 30. The game will kick off at 8 p.m. PT and appear on CBS Sports Network. It will mark UNLV's ninth appearance on CBS SN, including once when it was still known as CSTV.

Two weeks later, head coach Bobby Hauck's squad will host Washington State on Friday, Sept. 14 in a game that will be shown live on ESPN beginning at 6 p.m. PT. The matchup was previously scheduled to take place the following day.

It will mark the Rebels' first time hosting a game on ESPN since they downed Toledo on a Friday night Aug. 29, 2003. UNLV also appeared at home on ESPN2 just three weeks later that season on a Friday night vs. Hawaii. The Rebels opened last season on ESPN and ESPN 3D with a game at Wisconsin.

The third national TV game this fall will take place Saturday, Oct. 20 when UNLV travels to play at Boise State for the first time since 1977. The meeting with the Broncos will kick off at 12:30 p.m. PT and be televised by NBC Sports Network. It will mark the Rebels' fourth all-time appearance on the channel that used to be known as VERSUS, including last season's finale at TCU on Dec. 3.

Information about regional and local telecasts for additional Mountain West games is expected to be released by the conference in the coming weeks. Kickoff times for UNLV's five other home games are still to be determined.
