The Southern Conference announced its Nexstar broadcast schedule on Monday, and ETSU football will have at least three games televised on Nexstar affiliates this 2022 season.
ETSU’s game at The Citadel on Saturday, Sept. 10 will be the first game of the SoCon package to be televised on Nexstar. The other two games feature the Bucs at VMI on Saturday, Oct. 8, along with ETSU’s Homecoming game against Samford on Saturday, Oct. 22.
The final two Saturdays of the regular season, Nov. 12 and 19, will feature wildcard selections, with those games selected 10-14 days prior to the contests.
Each game in the Nexstar package will air concurrently on ESPN+ or ESPN3.
“We value our partnership with Nexstar Broadcasting that has grown our regional over-the-air station coverage of SoCon football in the Southeast,” SoCon Commissioner Jim Schaus said. “This should be a great telecast schedule for 2022.”
Nexstar affiliates with the opportunity to air games are: ECBD (Charleston), WMYT (Charlotte), WWCW (Lynchburg/Roanoke) and WYCW (Greenville/Spartanburg/Asheville). Although not a Nexstar station, WMUB (Macon), Mercer University Broadcasting, will also air select contests.
