SFA Football Has Four 2012 Games Slated for Encore Presentation
July 2, 2013
The Southland Conference released its encore schedule of football games from the 2012 season, which includes four Stephen F. Austin contests. The replays will air Tuesday evenings beginning at 7 p.m. for eight consecutive weeks.
The first broadcast is slated to begin Tuesday, but the 'Jacks first broadcast will be July 16th with a replay of the Battle of the Piney Woods from Reliant Stadium in Houston. The 'Jacks victory over Nicholls State is scheduled for replay Tuesday, July 30th. SFA's game against McNeese State will air the following week (Aug. 6). The encore presentations will conclude Tuesday, Aug. 20, with the 'Jacks annual Battle for Chief Caddo.
The Lumberjacks were 2-2 (.500) in those four broadcasts last season, including their fourth consecutive win over rival Northwestern State. The victory equaled the longest winning streak in series history for SFA. Sophomore Gus Johnson was dominant recording his second 200-yard rushing game of the season. The first-team All-SLC selection had 226 yards on 33 carries and a score.
