NEW ORLEANS – Kickoff time for the 2020 Sun Belt Conference Football Championship Game has been confirmed for 11 a.m. CT/noon ET on Saturday, December 19 at Brooks Stadium in Conway, South Carolina. The game, which will pit East Division champion Coastal Carolina vs. West Division champs Louisiana, will be broadcast on ESPN or ESPN2.
Louisiana (8-1, 6-1 Sun Belt) began its season with an upset victory over Iowa State, resulting in the school’s first ranking in the AP Poll since 1943. Head Coach Billy Napier, who has won three consecutive West Division championships at the helm in Lafayette, is attempting to lead the Ragin’ Cajuns to their first SBC title since 2013.
The Chanticleers (9-0, 7-0 Sun Belt) have been nothing short of dominant all season. After beginning the season ranked at the bottom of the Sun Belt preseason coaches polls, the Chants have run the table thus far. Their No. 20 CFP Ranking has earned the Conway, S.C. campus its first-ever visit from ESPN College GameDay for its showdown against Liberty on December 5.
The Championship Game will be a re-match of the Chanticleers and Ragin’ Cajuns game on October 14. Coastal Carolina handed Louisiana its only loss of the season, by a 30-27 margin, on a walk-off field goal by junior kicker Massimo Biscardi.
