Sep 15 Big 10 Network-TROY @ Nebraska

Sep 29 BYE

Oct 2 Tuesday ESPN 2- TROY @ SOUTH

Oct 13 ESPN 3-TROY @ Liberty

Oct 20 ESPN 3-Georgia State @ TROY

Oct 27 ESPN 3-TROY @ Georgia Southern

Nov 3 ESPN 3-Texas State @ TROY

Nov 10 ESPN 3-TROY @ ULM

Nov 17 ESPN 3-Coastal Carolina @ TROY

Nov 23 Friday ESPN 2-TROY @ App State

Dec 1 Sunbelt Champ Game ESPN-Ark St @ TROY

The downside of starting a Conference Title game is that the Sun Belt loses access to the last week of the season ESPN2 games like we've gotten the last 2 years.

There's no chance ESPN is going to give up a Friday after Thanksgiving time slot to the league. It just won't happen. I expect as a result, the matchups the league intentionally held to the last week of the season last year will be moved to October or Early November for television.

Thats a good point on the tv side of things. But still would not be surprised if the App vs Troy was the last regular season game. Even if that mean playing the game on a short week. Like Nov 24 Thursday or Nov 23 Wednesday. If its a Wednesday game they could push back the Nov 17 week game to Friday Nov 16 for App and Troy. That Nov 17 weeks game needs to be a home game for Troy for sure if they travel to Boone the last week of the year.

Nov 23 is already filled up by the MAC. That's their big day.
Nov 24 is Thanksgiving. Meaning no football outside of the Egg Bowl
Nov 25 is traditionally loaded with P5 Football games and a basketball tournament or two.

I know you badly want this to be the case, but trust me. Chances are pretty strong App/Troy is played in October or Early November to accommodate television. (Likely ESPNU, unless they pull the South game off of ESPN2)

Considering ULM misses App State, it's definitely wrong. Which is sort of hilarious.

Crazy. There were some Sci-Fi movies from the 80s set in that time period. We are officially living in the future.

RE: SunBelt Football Schedules
After last season GS @ App may not warrant a Thursday night game, we'll likely have Thursday games @ Ark St. and either Troy or GA St. in Boone. I doubt they give one school three Thursday night games.

As great as having our game on National TV has felt, I would be extremely excited to play App at home on a Saturday again.

I pulled mine straight off the Sun Belt announcement months ago, just double -check w/ FBschedules.com to be sure.

Our SIDs aren't the most trustworthy with releasing 100% correct information at time and without spelling/grammar errors too.
