In advance of tomorrow's Big South Football Media Day event, the Big South released its 2017 football television schedule earlier today, which includes a pair of Liberty games.
This year's Big South television schedule includes 10 games, which will be broadcast on ESPN3 and Stadium. ESPN3 will air seven exclusive Big South games in 2017, while Stadium (formerly ASN) will cover three Big South contests.
The Big South's exclusive ESPN3 "Game of the Week" begins Week 1 with Monmouth hosting Lafayette Sept. 2 at 3 p.m. in West Long Branch, N.J., the first game in the Hawks' new stadium.
The schedule resumes Oct. 14 as Kennesaw State squares off against Liberty at Williams Stadium during Homecoming Weekend. The schedule continues each week through the conclusion of the regular season on Nov. 18, which will be a "Wildcard" selection determined 14-21 days in advance.
Meanwhile, Stadium's three-game package features all noon kickoffs starting with the Oct. 14 Charleston Southern at Presbyterian game, followed by the Oct. 28 Liberty at Gardner-Webb contest and the Nov. 11 Gardner-Webb at Monmouth match-up. Game times for all three games have been changed to accommodate each broadcast. Carriage affiliates will be announced the week of each game.
The exclusive 10-game ESPN3/Stadium slate, as well as televised games outside the conference's package, appears below. In addition to the Big South's 10-game schedule, Liberty's game at Monmouth on Oct. 21 will air on the Monmouth Digital Network via ESPN3 and the Big South Network (BSN).
Additional televised games as well as exclusive Big South Network broadcasts will be announced once finalized. All remaining non-exclusive home contests will be available for free on the Big South Network as well as Roku as part of the Big South's broadcast tier plan.
LibertyFlames.com will release the Flames' full television schedule during Liberty's August football training camp.
