Conference USA programs enjoy significant television exposure through a multi-tiered selection process that is rooted in partnerships with FOX Sports Media Group and CBS Sports Network. By partnering with FOX Sports Media Group and extending an existing partnership with CBS Sports Network, the league has substantially increased the number of national and regional appearances for football, men's and women's basketball, and all other conference sports.


This season, seven Tiger Football games will be carried on television. Since 2007, at least seven games have been broadcast on television each year.


The season opener against Mississippi State was moved to Thursday, Sept. 1, so that it could be carried by new C-USA partner Fox Sports Network (FSN).


In addition to the season opener, the mid-November meeting with C-USA foe Marshall was also moved to a Thursday night to be carried by FSN. FSN also selected Memphis' Homecoming game versus SMU on Sept. 24, for broadcast.


One other Memphis home game slated for a national television broadcast by Comcast Sports South (CSS) is the Nov. 12 Battle For The Bones contest with UAB. CSS also committed to carry road contests at Rice on Oct. 8 and the regular season finale at Southern Miss on Nov. 26.


The final game announced for broadcast was the Oct. 29 game at UCF, which will air on Bright House Sports Network (BHSN).


In January 2011, C-USA announced a new multi-year agreement for national television rights with Fox Sports Media Group, beginning with the 2011 football season through the 2015-16 athletic year.


FOX Sports Networks (FSN) will provide a variety of marquee C-USA events, including football, men's and women's basketball, and other C-USA sponsored sports. This agreement will provide a significant increase in revenue and, in conjunction with C-USA's extended partnership with CBS College Sports Network, an increase in the number of events distributed and the overall exposure for the conference.


According to terms of the agreement, FSN will showcase a minimum of 20 regular-season football games per season, a minimum of 10 regular-season men's and five women's basketball games, and a variety of Olympic sports events. The C-USA football championship game will also be carried on FSN, FX or the FOX Network. FSN programming is distributed nationally to more than 85 million homes through more than two dozen owned and affiliated regional sports networks.


Provisions of the new agreement also allow Fox to televise select Conference USA events on FOX Sports, which reaches over 115 million households nationwide, and on FX, FOX's flagship general entertainment cable network available in over 98 million homes.


Conference USA's partnership with CBS College Sports Network (CBS C) is comprehensive in nature, and includes significant national and regional exposure for football, men's and women's basketball, and other Conference USA sports. Additionally, the partnership includes video-on-demand, Internet, broadband, national over-the-air and satellite radio, and wireless distribution as well as website production through CBS College Sports Online.


Available in HD, CBS College Sports Network is the original 24-hour cable network dedicated to college sports. CBS College Sports Network has over 30 million subscribers, and is available in 80 million homes in markets on cable and satellite systems across the country. Locally in Memphis, it is available on Comcast cable (222) as well as on DirecTV (Ch. 613) and DISH Network (Ch. 152).


CBS College Sports Network provides the most comprehensive coverage of all Conference USA sports, featuring an array of programming that includes live games, original shows, documentaries and the network's new nightly studio show "College Sports Tonight." CBS College Sports Network will be the number one source for complete college football coverage this fall, with more Conference USA programming than anywhere else and a full lineup of shows that connect fans to their favorite teams.
