2014 Conference USA Football Schedules Announced

By Kevin Kelley -
Conference USA

The 2014 Conference USA football schedules have been released. Conference play begins on Sept. 13 with WKU at Middle Tennessee and Louisiana Tech at North Texas.

For 2014, Conference USA welcomes Old Dominion and Western Kentucky as new members. East Carolina, Tulane, and Tulsa have each left Conference USA to join The American.

Due to C-USA having an odd number of schools in 2014 (13), the conference will have a unique format for this season only.

Each school in the West Division will play every team in its division once for five games, while playing three cross-over opponents from the opposite division. Three schools in the East Division will play every team in its division once for six games, while playing two cross-over opponents from the opposite division. Four schools in the East Division will play five opponents in its division once for five games, while playing three cross-over opponents from the opposite division. East Division schools playing five division games were randomly selected by a computer scheduling application and two intra-division matchups in the East will not take place this season.

The 2014 C-USA Championship Game will be played on Saturday, Dec. 6 and will be televised by ESPN or ESPN2.

Featured 2014 non-conference match-ups for Conference USA include Louisville at FIU, Florida Atlantic at Alabama, Louisiana Tech at Auburn, Ohio at Marshall, BYU at Middle Tennessee, North Texas at Texas, Old Dominion at Vanderbilt, Rice at Texas A&M, Southern Miss at Alabama, UAB at Mississippi State, UTEP at Kansas State, UTSA at Oklahoma State, and Western Kentucky at Navy.

    Wish they would make Thanksgiving weekend an actual rivalry week. As a Middle fan, I would much rather play WKU over UTEP

    I will never understand why conferences schedule games the last week of the season that could be a rematch in the Championship game the next week. While very unlikely, why run the risk?

    Is New Mexico vs Rice still happening in 2014? Only see 11 games for Rice.
