Southern scheduled for ESPN programming family four times in 2022 | Red Stick
Southern University will play on the ESPN family of programs four times during the 2022 season, according to the schedule released Friday by the Southwestern Athletic Conference office.
The Jaguars will play on the ESPN+ streaming service at Prairie View on October 8 and at home against Mississippi Valley State on November 12.
On November 5, the Jaguars will play Florida A&M on ESPNU. They will also play at Jackson State on October 29 on a platform to be determined later.
SWAC’s television schedule begins with an Aug. 27 game against Alabama State at Howard University on ESPN’s main channel. Six SWAC games will air on ESPNU, and the December 3 conference championship game is scheduled for ESPN2.
Conference commissioner Charles McClelland touted league attendance records and said seven SWAC games on the ESPN+ streaming service topped some FBS games on the network’s linear channels.
“We broke the SWAC attendance record, which led to additional media exposure and business partners,” McClelland said. “Our conference is strong and vibrant and we’re not going anywhere. We will only get stronger.
