HAMMOND - To commemorate Southeastern's first football championship in 52 years, the Southeastern Channel will pre-empt its regular broadcast schedule to air a football extravaganza the week of Dec. 2 leading up to the Lions' home playoff opener Saturday, Dec. 7.
The Southeastern Channel, Southeastern Louisiana University's educational access channel on Charter Cable, will air a different game from the 2013 season at 7:30 p.m. each night during the week and again at 8 a.m. on game day, the following Saturday morning.
"As a buildup to Southeastern's big FCS playoff game Saturday night, we know Lion football fans will want to relive some of the top victories from this season, one of the greatest in school history," said Southeastern Channel general manager Rick Settoon.
Settoon said the broadcast schedule for each week night will include victories over Southeast Missouri State on Monday, Dec. 2; Lamar on Tuesday, Dec. 3; Stephen F. Austin on Wednesday, Dec. 4; Central Arkansas on Thursday, Dec. 5; Sam Houston State on Friday, Dec. 6; and Nicholls State at 8 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 7.
Many top Southeastern sports events are replayed each year as part of the Southeastern Channel's Classic Lions series. The series can be accessed as video on demand from the channel's website at www.southeastern.edu/tv.
The Emmy-winning Southeastern Channel can be seen on Charter Cable Channel 18 in Tangipahoa, Livingston and St. Tammany parishes and on Channel 17 in Washington Parish.
