NEW ORLEANS - The Sun Belt Conference announced today its seven game football slate that will air on the Sun Belt Network this fall.
This is the fourth season of the Sun Belt Network, which is a joint partnership with Comcast/Charter Sports Southeast (CSS) and Cox Sports Television (CST). Each game will be available in 13 states across the southeast and is often available on ESPN3.com
and ESPN GamePlan outside of the CSS and CST markets.
The agreement with CSS and CST has resulted in the broadcasting of football, men's basketball, women's basketball, baseball, volleyball, and softball contests throughout the last three seasons. In whole, the Sun Belt Network has been responsible for over
100 events airing on CSS and CST over the past three seasons.
The seven games selected for the Sun Belt Network adds to the growing list of football broadcasts that the Sun Belt Conference and its institutions are directly responsible for. In total, 22 games are currently scheduled to air during the 2012 football
season because of the Sun Belt and member institution's willingness to broadcast games. Additionally, the Sun Belt will announce on August 2 that six more games will be added to the broadcast schedule.
