The Sun Belt is sticking with its 12-game schedule according to a Stadium report.

The Sun Belt, nor Louisiana Athletics confirmed the report Monday, but it is consistent with the tone around the conference. Cajuns athletic director Dr. Bryan Maggard has long stressed the Sun Belt's interest in playing a full schedule as long as the league felt it was safe. While some expected the conference to fall inline with the SEC, who announced a conference-only schedule last week, the loss of guaranteed revenue linked to those games only magnifies the financial toll teams are taking in the Sun Belt.

In July, the conference announced it wouldn't play games before September 3rd, but Monday, Texas State announced it had moved it's opener up to August 29.
