Southland Conference announces revised 2024 football schedule

By Kevin Kelley -

The Southland Conference has announced a revised 2024 football schedule following the news that Stephen F. Austin is rejoining the conference this fall.

Stephen F. Austin departed the Southland Conference three years ago to join the Western Athletic Conference (WAC). The WAC later combined with the ASUN to form a single conference, which was then renamed the United Athletic Conference (UAC).

On Wednesday, Stephen F. Austin announced that they are moving back to the Southland Conference officially on July 1, 2024. Stephen F. Austin joins returning members Houston Christian (HCU), Lamar, McNeese, Nicholls, Northwestern State, Southeastern Louisiana, Texas A&M-Commerce, and Incarnate Word (UIW).

Each Southland conference team will still play a seven-game conference schedule in order to retain previous commitments against non-conference opponents. Teams will also play 12-games schedules in 2024 due to NCAA bylaws and the calendar. The last time this occurred was the 2019 season and it will naturally occur again in 2025.

Kickoff times and television designations will be announced at a later date.
