SWAC switches to seven-game conference football schedule starting in 2017

SWAC football teams will soon get a chance to face more out-of-conference opponents. The league announced it is moving to a seven-game league schedule beginning in 2017. The league’s teams play nine of their 11 games against conference foes currently.
