The NFL Network will broadcast 10 Conference USA games in each of the next four seasons, according to a joint press release Monday.

“While exploring new media options for football, NFL Network stood out as an excellent opportunity for national exposure,” Conference USA commissioner Judy MacLeod said in the release. “We look forward to showcasing our conference through their tremendous platform and reach.”

The NFL Network will show one game a week on Saturdays.

“We are excited to showcase the next generation of NFL athletes to our fans on a weekly basis,” said Hans Schroeder, chief operating officer of NFL Media. “Our fans crave live football, and partnering with Conference USA — a conference which boasts several Hall of Fame players — provides us with an excellent opportunity to do so.”

The slate of 2019 games on the NFL Network will be announced at a later date.

Pro Football Hall of Famers who played at C-USA schools include Brett Favre (Southern Miss), Randy Moss (Marshall), Terry Bradshaw (Louisiana Tech) and “Mean” Joe Greene (North Texas).
