The Weber State Wildcats put on a football scrimmage on Thursday August 17, 2017 at Stewart Stadium at the campus of Weber State in Ogden.

Weber State football added more TV games to its 2018 schedule, the school announced Monday.

Eleven Sports Network announced its Big Sky game of the week selections and selected Weber State for three games.

The first come on Oct. 6 and 13, conference games at Northern Arizona and home against Eastern Washington.

The third is the Nov. 10 rivalry game at Southern Utah. Kickoff times for those games have yet to be determined.

Eleven Sports is available on DirecTV channel 623, Verizon Fios channel 597 and AT&T U-verse channel 1665. Like with other Big Sky games, Eleven Sports broadcasts are also available on WatchBigSky.com and the Pluto TV app.

This is the second season Big Sky games will be produced by Eleven Sports. The network will again carry a men’s basketball game of the week, the men’s quarterfinals and semifinals at the conference basketball tournament, and the women’s basketball semifinals and final.

Weber State now has five of its 11 games set for TV broadcasts. The Aug. 30 season opener at Utah will air on Pac-12 Network. An Oct. 20 home game against Montana State will air on ROOT Sports.

All games except the Utah and Montana State games will be available at WatchBigSky.com and on the Pluto TV app.

Weber State’s first home games — Sept. 15 against South Dakota and the Sept. 22 conference opener against Northern Colorado — both have kickoff times set for 6 p.m. Other kick times are yet to be announced.

Weber State enters 2018 looking to defend its Big Sky Conference title and reach the FCS Playoffs for a third straight season.
