CHARLOTTE – Gardner-Webb will have three of its 2016 football games televised as part of the broadcast schedule announced by the Big South Conference office.
Two more dates for the Runnin' Bulldogs are available for selection and will be announced during the season.
The October 8 game vs. Presbyterian is set for a 6:00 pm kickoff and will air live on ESPN3 as part of the league's Big South Game of the Week series. Gardner-Webb's October 22 home game vs. Kennesaw State will kick off at noon and will be televised on ASN (American Sports Network).
Gardner-Webb's November 5 game at defending Big South Conference champion Charleston Southern will also be televised on ASN, with a noon kickoff set in the low country.
The September 24 non-conference game at Ohio is available for selection for ESPN3, but a decision – nor a concrete kickoff time – will not be available until 12 days prior to that date.
The Big South's wildcard weekend is set for November 19, with one game available to be selected for broadcast on ESPN3. The Runnin' Bulldogs close out their regular season that afternoon against Monmouth in Ernest W. Spangler Stadium (1:30 pm).
Five more Gardner-Webb football games will air live via the Big South Network, the league's ever-growing streaming service. Road games at Elon and Western Carolina will also be available through in-house streaming options.
For the second season in a row all games played in Big South Conference stadiums will have video replay review available to officiating crews as part of the league's partnership with DVSport.
