ATLANTA — The Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SIAC) will return to ESPN with a 5-game slate featured exclusively on ESPN3, announced Wednesday by the league office.
ESPN3 will serve as the exclusive carrier of the league’s package for the second straight season. This year’s slate will feature two classics: White Water Classic and the 83rd Annual Tuskegee-Morehouse Classic, two Saturday night games, and the most-anticipated match-up between the East and West Division at the SIAC Football Championship.
“We are pleased to continue our collaboration with ESPN,” said Gregory Moore, Commissioner, SIAC. “That keen competitive landscape, coupled with our passionate fan following which last year resulted in the SIAC leading in average football attendance for the 15th consecutive year, makes ESPN3 the perfect platform to provide SIAC member schools and student-athletes with additional exposure opportunities.”
