COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - Dawn Staley and the South Carolina Gamecocks will make quite a few television appearances this season in their quest to capture the program's second national championship.

USC's first television appearance will take place on Nov. 18 as the Gamecocks host Maryland in their 5:30 p.m. matchup. Two weeks later, Carolina will play at home on ESPN2 in the SEC/Big 12 Challenge against Baylor.

Arguably, one of the biggest games on South Carolina's schedule will also be shown on ESPN2 when the Gamecocks travel to Storrs to face UConn.

In total, the Gamecocks' 12 SEC contests will also be aired on the ESPN family of networks. Three of Carolina's home games (Vanderbilt on Jan. 28, Georgia on Feb. 14, and Kentucky on Feb. 21) will be on the SEC Network. Four of Carolina's road games (at Texas A&M on Jan. 3, at LSU on Jan. 13, at Kentucky on Jan. 31, and at Arkansas on Feb. 2) will also be on the SEC Network.

Both of Carolina's games against Florida, their home game against Ole Miss, and the road game at Auburn will be shown on SEC Network+.
