Sun Belt Releases 2022 Football Schedule, Including Four New Members



NEW ORLEANS — The Sun Belt Conference announced its 2022 football schedule Tuesday, including its four new members James Madison, Marshall, Old Dominion, and Southern Miss. 
The 22nd season of Sun Belt football will feature 56 league games. Each Sun Belt program will play eight conference games—six against divisional opponents and two against opponents from the opposite division. 
The Sun Belt East Division will include App State, Coastal Carolina, Georgia Southern, Georgia State, James Madison, Marshall, and Old Dominion. The Sun Belt West Division will consist of Arkansas State, Louisiana, ULM, South Alabama, Southern Miss, Texas State, and Troy.

“The Sun Belt Conference—with our successful football programs and the passionate fanbases of our 14 members—is now stronger and much better positioned than it has ever been,” said Sun Belt Conference Commissioner Keith Gill. “The compelling matchups of our regional rivalries, our already strong foundation, and the addition of four schools will make the 2022 football season one of the most anticipated in the history of the Sun Belt.” 


Each of the Sun Belt’s four representatives in Bowl Season from a year ago—App State, Coastal Carolina, Georgia State, and Louisiana—will be featured prominently in the midweek portion of the conference’s schedule, with each appearing in at least two midweek games. 


Thursday, Sept. 22 – Coastal Carolina at Georgia State

Wednesday, Oct. 12 – Louisiana at Marshall

Wednesday, Oct. 19 – Georgia State at App State

Thursday, Oct. 20 – Troy at South Alabama

Thursday, Oct. 27 – Louisiana at Southern Miss

Thursday, Nov. 3 – App State at Coastal Carolina

Thursday, Nov. 10 – Georgia Southern at Louisiana


Kickoff times and networks for all midweek games and weekend games in the first three weeks of the season will be selected in early June. All other games will fall into the traditional 12-day selection process.
