IRVING, Texas - Five Middle Tennessee men's basketball games during the upcoming season will be televised on CSS and Fox Sports 1 as announced by Conference USA Wednesday.

C-USA has announced that four Blue Raider games will air on CSS, while Fox Sports 1 is slated to broadcast one MT contest. At this point, Middle Tennessee has three home games that will be televised.

MT's first TV game is Saturday, Nov. 30, when the Blue Raiders welcome nonconference opponent South Alabama to the Murphy Center for a noon tip-off on CSS. MT's inaugural C-USA matchup against UAB at home will also air on CSS. The Blue Raiders will take on the Blazers Saturday, Jan. 11 at 5 p.m.

Middle Tennessee then travels to Tulsa Thursday, Jan. 23 for an 8 p.m. contest for the team's only Fox Sports 1 broadcast on the books this season.

The Raiders return to the friendly confines of the Murphy Center Saturday, Feb. 15 to square off with Southern Miss at 1 p.m. on CSS. MT's final game airing on CSS is scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 22, when the team hits the road for Marshall, tipping off at 1 p.m.

The Blue Raiders are fresh off a 28-6 season in 2012-13, where they reached the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 1989 and seventh time in program history. They return eight players from last year's squad, including starters Shawn Jones and Kerry Hammonds. MT will look to continue its success in 2013-14 during its inaugural Conference USA season.

In addition to these five contests on CSS and Fox Sports 1, other televised Middle Tennessee games will be added and released at a later date.
