COLLEGE STATION, Texas – Texas A&M Soccer will be highlighted three times in 2014 as part of the SEC Network/ESPNU package, the Southeastern Conference announced today while revealing the leagues’ volleyball and soccer broadcast schedules for the upcoming season.

The SEC Network, a new 24/7 sports network launching August 14 and operated by ESPN, will elevate the SEC volleyball and soccer programs with unprecedented national television coverage. This season’s matchups will increase from a total of 14 events in 2013 to 80 events in 2014. The SEC Network alone will air a combined 65 live women’s volleyball and women’s soccer games in its debut year - more than five times the number of events available nationwide last year.

“These schedules reflect the breadth of exposure that our student-athletes will receive in the SEC’s Olympic sports on the SEC Network,” said Commissioner Mike Slive.  “It’s indicative of the full array of sports and unprecedented number of televised events SEC fans will enjoy throughout the athletic year.”

The 80 games scheduled by the SEC and ESPN include:
·         40 Women’s Volleyball games on SEC Network
·         25 Women’s Soccer games on SEC Network
·         10 Women’s Volleyball games on ESPNU
·         5  Women’s Soccer games on ESPNU

The Aggies will be featured in two home matches with their September 18 contest against Tennessee slated for the SEC Network and their October 5 match against Kentucky slated for ESPNU. A&M’s road match versus Vanderbilt on October 10 will air on the SEC Network. In addition, the entire SEC Tournament in Orange Beach will be televised with the championship match airing on ESPNU and all other matches slated for the SEC Network.

SEC SOCCER TOURNAMENT FINAL


An additional slate of soccer and volleyball 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.

With the Aggie Soccer schedule due to be released in the coming weeks, the 2014 season opener is currently booked for August 22 as A&M will hosted Dayton at Ellis Field.

Texas A&M returns 18 letterwinners from the 2013 campaign, including 10 of 11 starters. The returnees account for 54 of the Aggies’ 56 goals from last season. Texas A&M welcomes back All-Americans Shea Groom and Meghan Streight, along with fellow All-SEC performers Jordan Day, Leigh Edwards and Kelley Monogue.

The Maroon and White finished the 2013 season ranked No. 8 in the NSCAA Coaches Poll. A&M posted an 18-5-2 record for the year, claimed their first-ever SEC regular-season title with a 9-2-0 league ledger and captured an SEC Tournament crown. The Aggies appeared in their 19th consecutive NCAA Division I Championship, advanced to the Second Round for the 16th consecutive year and appeared in the Sweet 16 for the 12th time in program history.

Despite returning 10 starters from the 2013 championship squad, the Aggies were unable to garner the most television spots. Florida was selected for five matches while Arkansas and Missouri were each tabbed for four.
