Conference USA approves 8-game league slate

Conference USA approved an eight-game conference schedule and will allow members to play up to four nonconference games, the league’s board of directors announced Friday.

The first conference games are scheduled for Sept. 12, according to the league. Conference USA didn’t reveal specific matchups or dates of the regular season games.

The league’s title game is currently set for Dec. 5 but can be moved to a later date if needed.

The Conference USA Board of Directors also approved safety measures to ensure there is accountability of all athletic programs in terms of monitoring testing for COVID-19 and accurately reporting results.

“I am pleased with the careful consideration of our Board regarding the health and safety of our student athletes as well as their commitment to accountability,” Board chairman Dr. Les Guice, the president of Louisiana Tech, said in a news release.

The conference’s 14 football members are Charlotte, Florida Atlantic, Florida International, Louisiana Tech, Marshall, Middle Tennessee, North Texas, Old Dominion, Rice, Southern Miss, Texas-San Antonio, UAB, UTEP and Western Kentucky.
