Three Sam Houston State football games will be televised during the 2012 season as part of the Southland Conference Television Network fall schedule announced Wednesday by the league office.

All games will be carried on more than 20 affiliates across the regional network, including stations in Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas and Oklahoma, increasing the network's reach to more than 11.2 million households.

The local affiliate in the Greater Houston area will be the KUBE 57.1.

In addition to syndicated television coverage, all games will stream live and on demand as part of the new Southland Digital Network at southland.org. Broadcasts also will be carried by ESPN3, which is available online at watchespn.com and the WatchESPN app on iPhone, iPad, Android and Xbox LIVE systems.

Tape-delayed coverage will be available nationwide via Fox College Sports Central. Regionally, replays will be shown on Comcast SportsNet Houston and Cox Sports Television. All events will also be available on demand on the Southland Digital Network mobile and tablet applications as well as the Southland Affiliate Network and SmartTV applications.

The Bearkats, defending Southland Conference champions, will open the 2012 football TV schedule with a showdown against 2012 league runner-up Central Arkansas in Conway Saturday Sept. 22

For the third year in a row, "The Battle of the Piney Woods" rivalry game with Stephen F. Austin at Reliant Stadium Saturday Oct. 6 in Houston will be SHSU's second TV appearance. The Kats' encounter with Lamar in Beaumont Saturday Oct. 27 also will be televised on the network.

"The Southland Conference is proud to announce its fifth year of programming with another solid broadcast schedule and a great group of affiliates," Southland Conference Commissioner Tom Burnett said. "There are loyal stations that have been with us from day one, plus new stations that will be with us entering the 2012 season. I believe their viewers will see a great product, not only on the field of play from our student-athletes, but in high-quality, award-winning production of the network."

Other games included Southeastern Louisiana at Lamar Sept. 29 at 3 p.m.; Northwestern State vs. Southeastern Louisiana Oct. 13; Nicholls State and SFA Oct. 20; Stephen F. Austin vs.  McNeese State Oct. 27; Nicholls against the Cowboys and Northwestern State and Central Arkansas both on Nov. 3.

The final two regular-season Saturdays have been designated for "wild card" broadcasts, allowing the network to air the best possible games as the conference race shapes up. The Nov. 10 game will be one of three possible matchups: Nicholls State at Lamar, Sam Houston State at Northwestern State or Stephen F. Austin at Southeastern Louisiana. The Nov. 17 contest will feature either Lamar at McNeese State or Northwestern State at Stephen F. Austin. Both wild card games will begin at 3 p.m.

The network will also televise the championship matches of the Southland Conference soccer and volleyball tournaments as part of its fall broadcast schedule. The soccer championship is Sunday, Nov. 4, while the volleyball championship follows on Sunday, Nov. 18.

Live coverage in Texas markets includes Abilene-Sweetwater on KRBC (9.2); Amarillo on KCPN (19.2); Austin on Time Warner YNN Sports (408/77); Beaumont-Port Arthur on KUIL (12.3); Corpus Christi on KIII (3.2); Dallas-Fort Worth on KTXD (47.1); Houston on KUBE (57.1); Lubbock on KMYL (22.2); Midland-Odessa on KWWT (30.1); San Antonio on KCWX (2.1/2.2); Tyler-Longview on KYTX (19.2); and Waco-Temple-Bryan on KCEN (6.2). The list of Louisiana markets includes Baton Rouge on WBTR (41); Lake Charles on KVHP (29.2); Morgan City on KWBJ (22); New Orleans on WHNO (20.1/20.2) and Shreveport on KPXJ (21.1).

The Southland Conference continues to pursue agreements in other markets, and the list of affiliates will vary week to week, so check Southland.org/television for a carriage list prior to each game.

The Southland Conference Television Network became a reality in 2008 and has broadcast more than 100 events during its first four years. The network earned a College Sports Media Award in 2009-10 for best live/game event in the collegiate division, following that up with an honorable mention in the professional division (2010-11) and a nomination in the collegiate division (2011-12).
