The CBS Sports Channel College Game Schedule

You can watch the CBS Sports Channel on Dish Network on Channel 158.

The channel started out as College Sports Television, and it still has the rights to some of the most popular college sports content.

In terms of college football, CBS airs the games of the SEC, Navy/Army, and the Mountain West.

SEC games are on the CBS broadcast channel but Mountain West airs 23 football and basketball games on the CBS Sports Channel.

For less popular games that aren’t on the CBS broadcast channel, the CBS Sports Channel is going to be the home for these games.

It’s a similar situation for basketball.  CBS has the rights to the AAC, Atlantic 10, Big 12, Big East, Big 10, Pac-12, and SEC among other rights.

The American Conference, Big 12, Big 10, and Pac-12 won’t air on the CBS Sports Network.  They’ll be on the main CBS broadcast channel.

For Mountain West, Big East, and the Missouri Valley Conference, it’s a mix of games on CBS and the CBS Sports channel, and for the rest of the games, they’ll be on CBSN.
