Sun Belt Announces 2023 Football Cross-Divisional Opponents

Last Updated on January 5, 2023 12:46 pm

NEW ORLEANS — The Sun Belt Conference announced the cross-divisional opponents for the 2023 football season on Thursday. 

The Sun Belt is coming off a 2022 campaign in which it defeated four autonomy five programs, hosted ESPN’s College GameDay for the second time in conference history and produced a conference-record seven Bowl Season participants. 

Each of the conference’s 14 programs plays one home game and one away game against a cross-divisional foe each season—and will play every team in the opposite division at least once every four years. 

In addition to the two cross-divisional matchups, Sun Belt members play six divisional games annually, fostering regional rivalries amongst divisional foes. 

This divisional and regional model led to a number of record-setting crowds during the 2022 campaign—the Sun Belt’s first as a 14-member football conference. 

The complete 2023 Sun Belt football schedule, including play dates, will be released by no later than March 1, 2023.
