Four home games were moved from Wednesday to Tuesday to accommodate broadcast requests. The Air Force game moved from Jan. 9 to Jan. 8 and Boise State moved from Jan. 30 to Jan. 29. Both conference matchups will be shown on AT&T SportsNet.
CSU will now host San Diego State on Tue., Feb. 12 for a battle on ESPN. Finally, the the Utah State game was bumped to Tue., March 5 and will be shown on AT&T SportsNet.
While the majority of CSU’s games now have tip-off times and TV information determined, there are a few nonconference games that will be announced in the near future.
