Southern Miss Adds 10 Television Contests for 2012 Football Season

HATTIESBURG, Miss. – For the first time in school history, the entire 2012 Southern Miss football regular-season schedule will be televised with the announcement of 10 additional games to be broadcast by Conference USA Thursday afternoon.

The Golden Eagles are set to be showcased five times on the CBS Sports Network, while also airing three times on Comcast Sports Southeast (CSS) and twice on Fox Sports Net. These games are in addition to the two contests that were selected last week to be a part of the ESPN family of networks schedule.

 The CBS Sports Network games include East Carolina (Sept. 15 at 2:30 p.m.), Louisville (Sept. 29 at 7 p.m.), at UCF (Oct. 13 at 7 p.m.), Marshall (Oct. 20 at 6 p.m.) and UTEP (Nov. 17 at 7 p.m.).

 Rivalry games with Rice (Oct. 27 at 12 noon in Houston), UAB (Nov. 3 at 6:30 p.m.) and the season finale at Memphis (Nov. 24 at 2:30 p.m.) are set to be shown on CSS, while Fox Sports Net is set to televise both the Boise State (Oct. 6) and SMU (Nov. 10) contests. Those game times will not be announced until 12 days out from the game.

These 10 games join the Nebraska contest (Sept. 1) that was already announced last week as being shown on ABC or ESPN2 at 2:30 p.m., depending on television market location, while the Sept. 22 Western Kentucky tilt is slated for ESPN3 at 6 p.m.

All times listed are central standard.
