Valdosta State gets three games picked up by ESPN3

| July 14, 2017

VALDOSTA Blazer football’s push for its sixth postseason appearance in the last eight years will be on display for a large audience several times during the upcoming 2017 season, as three Valdosta State games will be televised live on ESPN3 as part of the 2017 Florida’s Space Coast Gulf South Conference Football Game of the Week package.

The three featured GSC matchups for Valdosta State are part of a 10-game GSC package and includes two Blazer home games, beginning with the home opener on September 16th against long-time rival North Alabama. ESPN will return to Valdosta on October 14th, when the Mississippi College Choctaws come to town. Sandwiched between those two contests, VSU’s highly anticipated matchup against David Dean’s West Georgia Wolves will be aired on October 7th from Carrollton, Ga. Each of the games can be seen live on ESPN3 and on the ESPN app.

“The Gulf South Conference’s Game of the Week package has been a leader in Division II since its inception. Continuing our relationship with ESPN provides unparalleled exposure and distribution for the GSC,” said GSC Commissioner Matt Wilson. ” We believe that the ESPN digital platforms are ideal for our fans, student-athletes, and future recruits.” The full 2017 ESPN3 schedule can be seen below.
