COLLEGE STATION, Texas – At least nine Texas A&M volleyball matches will be televised live on the SEC Network, 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

Volleyball will air primarily on Wednesdays and Sundays throughout the regular season, with one Thursday matchup between the Aggies and LSU on Nov. 6 at Reed Arena.
