STARKVILLE, Miss. – Mississippi State volleyball will have eight regular-season contests broadcast on the SEC Network and ESPNU this season, while the Bulldog soccer team will appear twice on the SEC Network.

AT&T U-Verse, DISH, Google Fiber and National Rural Telecommunications cooperative (NRTC) have agreed to carry the SEC Network. Fans not wanting to miss any of the action can demand the SEC Network by calling their cable/satellite provider or going to

Five of MSU volleyball’s six games on the newly-formed SEC Network come at home, beginning with a Sunday, Oct. 5 match against Florida.

"We are incredibly excited about the national exposure our program will have with the SEC Network and the ongoing partnership with ESPN,” Jenny Hazelwood said. “Fans will have unprecedented access to volleyball on television and that is a great thing for our sport and for our volleyball program at Mississippi State. We will be putting a very exciting brand of volleyball on the floor this fall and we are looking forward to showcasing that to a national television audience through the SEC Network and ESPNU."

The SEC Network will also broadcast home contests against Missouri (Oct. 19), Auburn (Oct. 31) and Kentucky (Nov. 23). The Bulldogs’ Nov. 21 match at Georgia was also picked up by the SEC Network.

The Bulldogs’ road matches at LSU on Oct. 8 and Alabama on Nov. 12 will be carried by ESPNU, while the network will also broadcast the Nov. 5 game against rival Ole Miss at the Newell-Grissom Building.

Mississippi State soccer’s debut on the SEC Network comes Sept. 19 when the Bulldogs host the Rebels in the annual battle for the Magnolia Cup.

The Bulldogs’ Oct. 23 contest at Auburn will also be televised by the SEC Network.

“We are excited to have the SEC Network as a platform to showcase SEC soccer to fans across the nation,” Aaron Gordon said. “To have the SEC Network carrying soccer on a regular basis is a benefit for our program and the other schools in the SEC. We are excited to have our games on the SEC Network, especially our home game against Ole Miss. The Magnolia Cup is such a great rivalry, and to have it on our campus on the SEC Network will add so much more to that game.”

An additional slate of games, to be announced at a later date, will be carried on the SEC Network’s digital platforms. All SEC Network and ESPNU games will be available on WatchESPN.
