Sam Houston’s third game of the 2014 season Saturday, Sept. 6, against LSU in Baton Rouge, La., will kickoff at 6:30 p.m. (Central time) and will be televised by the new SEC Network.

The Southeastern Conference and ESPN announced the plans for televising the game Thursday. The Sam Houston State game will be LSU’s first contest in the newly-expanded Tiger Stadium, which will feature a seating capacity of more than 100,000.

The Bearkats open their 2014 schedule Saturday August 23 in the FCS Kickoff at Eastern Washington at 2:30 p.m. (Central). Sam Houston plays its home opener at Elliott T. Bowers Stadium in Huntsville Saturday, August 30.

LSU opens on August 30 against Wisconsin in Houston in the AdvoCare Texas Kickoff.

The SEC Network, the new national sports network launching August 14 and operated by ESPN, will air a game featuring every football team in the SEC within the first four weeks of the 2014 college football season.

The telecasts at Eastern Washington and LSU will mark the 11th and 12th time that Sam Houston football has been featured on the ESPN family of networks in the past three seasons.
