Sun Belt to air games on American Sports Network


The Sun Belt Conference has been gaining steam ever since they added big-name FCS programs Georgia Southern and Appalachian State a few years ago. They do have an agreement for games to be shown on ESPN over the next few years, but now they can add American Sports Network to their list of partners.

The conference announced on Wednesday that they would show five games on the network for the 2016 season.

This comes after American Sports Network was informed the Sun Belt’s sublicensing agreement with ESPN allows for a minimum of eight football games and 10 basketball games to be aired on other networks.

Via Sun Belt Sports:

“The sublicense agreement reached by ESPN and ASN allows the Sinclair Broadcast Group-owned network to produce and distribute Sun Belt Conference games via Sinclair affiliate television stations and other over the air and cable stations nationwide. Sinclair Broadcast Group is the largest owner of television stations in the United States, currently owning or operating 173 television stations in 81 markets nationwide and having affiliations with all the major networks.”

Here are the five games that will show on American Sports Network this year.

Friday, September 2
Ball State at Georgia State – 7 p.m.

Saturday, September 3
Boise State at UL Lafayette – 12 p.m.

Saturday, September 10
Old Dominion at Appalachian State – 3:30 p.m.
Georgia Southern at South Alabama – 7 p.m.

Saturday, September 17
South Alabama at UL Lafayette – TBA

The network plans on announcing more games for the upcoming season at a later date.
