The Mountain West announced kick-off times and TV information for its Friday night slate for 2014 on CBS Sports Network and ESPN/ESPN2. 

The MW, looking for national exposure in the College Football Playoff era, has scheduled several highly anticipated Friday night games, including Washington State-Nevada on Sept. 5, Northern Illinois-UNLV on Sept. 12 (on CBS Sports Network) and BYU-Boise State on Oct. 24. Getting these premiere games out in front of a national audience can help boost a league's reputation -- something that will (unfortunately) become a concern in the selection committee-controlled CFP.
