The schedule for the Panthers first season under new coach Isiah Thomas is out and there are plenty of road games.
FIU will play 18 of its 31 games away from U.S. Century Bank Arena beginning with the defending national champion North Carolina Tar Heels on Nov. 9 on ESPNU.
Like it was mentioned in Tuesday's post, the home opener is against Florida Memorial on Nov. 17 and then FIU hosts the Miami Sub-Regional of the Coaches vs. Cancer Classic.
From late November until New Year's Eve, FIU will be on the road with games at Bowling Green, Florida State and the start of Sun Belt play at Denver and North Texas.
