Conference USA announced a deal with ESPN that completes the mystery of the other games on the schedule.
We knew CBS Sports/Facebook/Stadium were going to be the primary partners but we did not know how or if the rest of the league’s inventory was going to be divvied.
The schedule for NT is short on the national games, in case you wanted a little reality for your narrative, but the showdown with FAU will be nationally broadcast.
Unfortunately the Arkansas game will be on the mysterious SEC Alternative channel which is usually one of the local network channels that sometimes forgets to put the information on the guide. So we have that to look forward to.
Seriously, this is all good. If you remember (like I do) the Sun Belt days when we simply hoped that the games were watchable you realize the good fortune here. Obviously, a nice nationally broadcast deal wherein we could reliably predict the channel and time of the game would be the ideal. As it is, there is no silly midweek game (FAU excepted) like the Mountain West.
So that’s nice. Here is the schedule.
|9/15||at Arkansas||3:00p||SEC Network ALT|
