Charleston Southern (CSU) football will be featured in a Big South Conference “Game of the Week” three times this season, all broadcast on ESPN3.
CSU will host Presbyterian Oct. 18, travel to Monmouth Nov. 1 and host Gardner-Webb Nov. 8.
The Big South Conference announced its 2014 football schedule on ESPN3 this week, and this year’s “Game of the Week” package features eight consecutive contests – seven of them between conference members.
The Big South’s exclusive “Game of the Week” package begins Oct. 4 with Gardner-Webb hosting Charlotte. Presbyterian hosts Coastal Carolina Oct. 11 in the first intra-conference matchup on ESPN.
CSU will be new associate football member Monmouth’s first Big South home game Nov. 1 and the first Big South game played in New Jersey.
The schedule wraps up Nov. 22 with the highly anticipated season finale between Liberty and Coastal Carolina.
Two Big South season openers will also receive coverage as Presbyterian travels to Northern Illinois Aug. 28 and Liberty opens at North Carolina Aug. 30.
Mike Hogewood and Mike Gleason will handle play-by-play duties of the Big South’s ESPN3 package. Each will also utilize instant replay technology again this season per the Big South’s partnership with DVSport.
ESPN3, ESPN’s live multi-screen sports network, will originate coverage from each of the six Big South football members this fall. The slate includes one out-of-conference matchup – the second straight year an exclusive non-league home game will receive national exposure.
Additional Big South games are slated for television this season and will be announced at a later date.
