Southern Conference announces football broadcast schedule

Southern Conference announces football broadcast schedule

July 11th, 2012 by John Frierson in Local Regional News

The Southern Conference released the broadcast schedule for the 2012 football season today and the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga's Oct. 13 game at Furman will be shown on ESPN3.com.

That is the Mocs' only scheduled SoCon game on ESPN3, but the league has left open the Nov. 10 and 17 dates so that it can broadcast the best late-season matchups.

UTC will also be on ESPN3 in its season opener at South Florida.

The SoCon's eight-game schedule starts on Sept. 8, with a premier non-conference Football Championship Subdivision matchup between national powers Appalachian State and Montana in Boone, N.C.

Another marquee matchup will be App State at Georgia Southern on Nov. 3.

All eight SoCon games will be broadcast exclusively on ESPN3.
