The USF Bulls have added the McNeese State Cowboys to their 2013 football schedule, TampaBay.com has reported.
USF will host McNeese in their season opener on August 31, 2013 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa. McNeese, a member of the Southland Conference in the Football Championship Subdivision, will receive a guarantee of $400,000 for the game.
The two schools’ first and only meeting was back in 2006 in Tampa. The Bulls won that game 41-10.
The addition of McNeese completes the non-conference portion of USF’s 2013 football schedule. The Bulls travel to Michigan State (09/07) and host Florida Atlantic (09/14) and Miami, FL (11/30).
TampaBay.com also reported that USF is close to completing a contract to host Chattanooga in their 2012 season opener.
