According to the Georgia Southern University Athletic Dept., Georgia Southern will host two nationally televised home football games this season, both to be aired on ESPNU.
Georgia Southern will host Appalachian State on Thursday, Sept. 25 and then will host Troy on Oct. 30.
Kickoff times for both games will be announced at a later time by the network.
"The opportunity to showcase our Football program, new facilities and Georgia Southern University before millions of fans across the country is just one of the benefits of being a member of the Sun Belt Conference," said Director of Athletics Tom Kleinlein in a statment. "The fact that two of our games were picked for a national TV audience is a statement about the success of our football program, the passion of Eagle Nation and the growth of our University. These are exciting times in Statesboro."
