New Orleans (SBC) - The Sun Belt Conference announced Monday that the Middle Tennessee at WKU football game has been selected as the Sun Belt Network Game of the Week. The November 20 contest between the Blue Raiders and Hilltoppers is set for a 3:15 p.m. (CT) kickoff.
The MT-WKU game is the third of four selections that will be made for the Sun Belt Network during the month of November. The "Wild Card" selections will be made 12 calendar days in advance and are designed to feature the most compelling game scheduled.
Veteran broadcasters Joe Block, Cole Cubelic and Sandra Golden will respectively handle play-by-play, analyst and sideline duties.
The Sun Belt Network is the product of an agreement with regional television partners Comcast Sports Southeast (CSS) and Cox Sports Television (CST). The agreement between the three parties results in the broadcasting of football, men's basketball, women's basketball, baseball, volleyball and softball contests throughout the upcoming year.
Through additional distribution agreements the reach of the Sun Belt Network has expanded in the states of Texas (Texas Channel and Charter Denton), Florida (Bright House) and Kentucky (WKYU). These supplementary distributions beyond CSS and CST provide Sun Belt Network broadcasts to over 15 million households during football season throughout the southeast.
The Sun Belt Network football game of the week is often available on ESPN3.com and ESPN GamePlan outside of the CSS and CST markets.
