The University of New Mexico released their schedule for the 2014-2015 season.  New Mexico’s non-conference schedule includes the ESPN Puerto Rico Tip-Off and home games against Idaho State, Cal State Fullerton, USC, New Mexico State, UL Monroe and Central Arkansas. Opposite those games in The Pit are trips to Valparaiso, New Mexico State and Grand Canyon.

“The ESPN tournament in Puerto Rico has an outstanding field that includes UConn, Dayton, West Virginia, Texas A&M and many other good programs," head coach Craig Neal said in a released statement. "It will help prepare us for our conference schedule, which will be challenging as always. Every game is tough in the Mountain West.”

Conference play starts on New Year’s Eve this season as New Mexico will host Fresno State in The Pit. It’s the first of the 18 MW games for UNM, which will play Nevada and San Jose State only once.

In addition to the conference schedule, the Mountain West also released its television broadcast schedule as well. New Mexico had 14 of its 18 MW games picked up for national broadcast in the conference’s first package, which includes seven on the ESPN family of networks and seven on CBS Sports. CBS Sports, ROOT SPORTS and the Mountain West Network will announce additional broadcasts in the future.

Tip-off times and additional television broadcast information will also be announced later this summer.
