Deion Sanders, JSU get bulk of SWAC ESPN time

Deion Sanders and Jackson State will be heavily featured on the 2021 SWAC Spring Schedule for ESPN.

Football fans will get to see plenty of Deion Sanders and Jackson State this spring.

Jackson State will have all six of its spring football games broadcast on the ESPN family of networks, including two games on ESPN. 


“We are extremely excited to release our upcoming slate of games set to be carried by ESPN for our Spring 2021 Football season,” SWAC Commissioner Dr. Charles McClelland said. “This lineup is highlighted by multiple intriguing matchups that will feature all of our member institutions competing in the sport of football during this highly unique spring season.”

Dr. McClelland told members of the media last month he would push for more from the media network

“It was our commitment to deliver to our fans as many opportunities as possible for them to watch our games via ESPN’s wide variety of linear and digital platforms. This schedule is obviously a significant measure towards assisting us with achieving that objective. We look forward to the increased national exposure this slate of games provides our membership as well as our league as a whole.”

JSU will have four games on ESPN 3, including its opener against Edward Waters. That game also serves as the debut as Deion Sanders as its head coach.

Southern will get the second most ESPN time with five appearances. Alabama State and Prairie View will get four appearances each. Grambling State and Mississippi Valley State will have two games each.
