The NCAA has announced two Texas A&M University-Commerce football games in the 2019 season have been selected for broadcast on ESPN3 as part of NCAA’s Division II Football Showcase.
The No. 13 Lions’ home game against No. 20 Midwestern State on Oct. 12 and the road game at West Texas A&M on Nov. 2 will be broadcast nationally on ESPN’s app and ESPN.com.
A&M-Commerce has had home football games televised nationally in each of the last five seasons, becoming one of the most featured schools in Division II as the program has risen to national prominence. The Lions are also the only team to be selected for two Division II Showcase games in 2019. Eighteen games have been selected in the first nine weeks of the season, with four flex games to be selected later in the season.
