Charlotte, NC — The 2016 Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) football season is scheduled to include four televised games broadcast across TV platforms such as the ASPiRE TV Network, ESPN3 and available online via WatchESPN.

The Virginia State University Trojans and the 2015 runner-up Bulldogs of Bowie State University have been selected for this season’s first CIAA televised football game on Oct. 15.

The contest, also the Bulldogs’ “Homecoming,” will air live on the ASPiRE TV Network. Kickoff is slated for 2 p.m. EDT at Bulldogs Stadium in Bowie, Maryland.  In their only meeting last year, the Bulldogs defeated the Trojans by only three points during VSU’s homecoming game.

On Oct. 22, ESPN3 and WatchESPN will feature a CIAA contest between two teams who both appeared in the playoffs last year, the Bulldogs and the Virginia Union University Panthers. As one of the NCAA’s twenty-two 2016 Division II football show-case games, the matchup will kick off at 2 p.m. EDT on the Panthers’ home turf of Hovey Field in Richmond, Virginia.

The second CIAA/ASPiRE TV Network telecast will highlight a battle between the defending CIAA Football Champion Rams of Winston-Salem State University versus the Fayetteville State University Broncos.  In their 2015 matchup, the Rams closed out the regular season with a 2-point victory over FSU.  The FSU football program has since taken new leadership with head coach Richard Hayes Jr., former WSSU defensive coordinator. This year’s contest is scheduled for Nov. 5 at 2 p.m. EDT at Luther “Nick” Jeralds Stadium in Fayetteville.

The Conference television broadcast schedule will conclude with the 2016 CIAA Football Championship on Nov. 12, at 2 p.m. EDT.  The Northern Division and Southern Division Champions will face-off for the title at Durham County Memorial Stadium in Durham.  The championship contest will air live on ASPiRE.

Urban Sports & Entertainment Group produces the CIAA Regional Television Network.
