Colonels’ Football opener at Kansas moved to ESPN+

THIBODAUX, La. – The Nicholls State University football team's 2018 opener Saturday at Kansas has been moved to an ESPN+ broadcast, which is ESPN's new, direct-to-consumer, streaming sports subscription service.

Originally scheduled to air on ESPN3, the game's broadcast was a last-minute change due to an agreement announced Thursday between Kansas Athletics and ESPN+. The University's Jayhawk Network will air the game locally, with ESPN+ carrying the game online nationwide.

The Colonels' home opener against Sam Houston State on Sept. 22 will also be available on ESPN+. Fans can sign up for the service for $5 a month and can also take advantage of a free 7-day trial.

The rest of the broadcast schedule for the 2018 season will be announced on a later date.
