Two of the first three University of South Alabama football games this fall will be broadcast live nationally. The announcement was made Thursday, May 30, by the Sun Belt Conference office and ESPN.

The Jaguars will appear a minimum of four times on ESPN's networks after it was revealed that the program's 2019 opener at Nebraska on Aug. 31 will air on ESPN while South's non-conference match-up at home against Memphis Sept. 14 can be seen on ESPNU. The Jags were already scheduled to appear on ESPNU on Thursday, Oct. 3 when they play host to Georgia Southern as well as on ESPN2, which will broadcast the annual "Battle For The Belt" at Troy on Wednesday, Oct. 16.

Kickoff time in Lincoln, Neb., has been set for 11 a.m. (CDT), with USA's first two homes games against Jackson State and Memphis getting underway at 6 p.m. and 2:30 p.m., respectively. The match-up with JSU will be broadcast live on ESPN+.

The Jaguars' contest against Georgia Southern — their first at home in Sun Belt action — is slated for a 6:30 p.m. start, with game time at Troy set for 7 p.m.

It was also announced that South's Sept. 21 visit to Alabama-Birmingham will be broadcast at 2:30 p.m. on the NFL Network.
