Date Changes Announced for 2013 C-USA Football Schedule
Feb. 28, 2013
Conference USA has announced date changes to three football games this fall. All three date changes are to accommodate national television. Game times and networks will be announced at a later date.
The first game is a non-conference contest between Iowa State and Tulsa, a rematch of last season's AutoZone Liberty Bowl won by the Golden Hurricane, 31-17. The 2013 game will now be played Thursday, September 26, in Tulsa.
The initial conference meeting between Marshall and Middle Tennessee has also changed dates. The Thundering Herd and Blue Raiders will now face each other on Thursday, October 24 in Murfreesboro, Tenn.
The late season meeting between Marshall and Tulsa has been moved up two days and will now be played Thursday, November 14, in Tulsa.
One other date change that has been announced involving a Conference USA team is Florida Atlantic's season opener at Miami (Fla.). That contest will now be played Friday, August 30, in Miami Gardens, Fla. A game time and any television details have not yet been announced.
Additional date changes to accommodate television do remain a possibility, and details of such games will be announced as soon as possible.
C-USA's 17th football season will begin on Thursday, August 29. The league's ninth annual football championship game is scheduled for Saturday, December 7.
