Mark your calendar: American, C-USA, MAC, Sun Belt highlight football on ASN

More than 70 football games highlight the 2016 ASN college football schedule, released today.

The lineup, which kicks off on Sept. 1 at 7 p.m. ET,  is the most robust since the network debuted in 2014. Included among games from Conference USA, the American Athletic Conference, the MAC and Sun Belt are 21 teams that participated in postseason bowl games and eight teams that played in the FCS playoffs.

The season begins with a pair of games airing on Sinclair stations and other syndicated over the air and cable affiliates nationwide.  In the first of five games involving the American Athletic Conference on ASN this season, UConn plays host to Maine, while Houston Baptist travels to Central Arkansas for an early showdown in the Southland Conference.  Both games are 7 p.m. ET kicks.

The Sun Belt  debuts on ASN the following night when the Mid-American Conference’s Ball State travels to the Georgia Dome to take on a tough Georgia State team at 7 p.m.  For the second season, ASN will broadcast 10 MAC games. In addition there will be a minimum of seven Sun Belt games aired on ASN this fall, with games involving league powers Georgia Southern and Appalachian State.

Opening weekend wraps up with a bang on Saturday, Sept. 3, when perennial FBS power Boise State travels to Louisiana Lafayette for a noon ET showdown at Cajun Field.   Two local rivals go head to head for supremacy of the DFW Metroplex when SMU of The American runs up Interstate 35 to Denton, Texas to take on the Mean Green of North Texas at 7 p.m. ET.

Other American games this season include defending-champion Houston playing host to Lamar on Sept. 10 and Navy at Tulane on Sept. 17.

Fans will want to mark Sept. 17 as must-watch football. Defending MAC champion Bowling Green will kick off the day with what could be the most pass-happy game of the day when Middle Tennessee State, led by QB Brent Stockstill, take on the Falcons in Northwestern Ohio at noon ET. Also at noon in some parts of the country the Spiders of Richmond, an NCAA semifinalist last season, will travel to Stony Brook.

Available in most of the country at 3:30 p.m., Western Kentucky, which looks to reload after a dominant Conference USA run last season, will be in Oxford, Ohio, for a showdown with the Miami Redhawks.

The complete schedule includes games from the Colonial, Big South, and Southern conferences, as well as games from the Patriot and Ivy Leagues. As the season progresses, the schedule will be updated based on flex picks each network is allowed.

Game times and teams are subject to change. Complete station list for game broadcasts will be updated.
