Conference USA releases 2018 television schedule and new deal with ESPN

From CBS Sports Network to ESPN, C-USA football will be available just about everywhere.

NCAA Football: Alabama-Birmingham at Southern Mississippi Matt Bush-USA TODAY Sports

Conference USA announced their TV schedule for the upcoming 2018 football season and it features games on just about every sports network you could think of.

C-USA football can been seen on seven different networks/platforms this season: ESPN, ESPN3, ESPN+ CBS Sports Network, beIN Sports, Stadium, and Facebook.

It’s a very interesting strategy from C-USA. No matter what streaming service or TV provider consumers have, odds are they will come across a C-USA football game. C-USA will be featured on TV networks/streaming services on at least 90 different occasions this seasons.

Conference USA Commissioner Judy MacLeod mentioned on the Underdog Pawdcast that C-USA will be on ESPN’s family networks this year in some capacity and that came to the light today as the conference has a multi-year deal with ESPN. Games will be aired on ESPN3 and ESPN+, the World Wide Leader’s new streaming service.

This means that the inventory we would normally find on CUSA.TV will now be on ESPN3 and ESPN+. Considering the issues CUSA.TV has had when it comes to quality, this can only be seen as good news for fans of the conference.

For those who follow C-USA football (and basketball), get ready to sign up for ESPN+.
