C-USA realignment, 2013 home football opponents set

FIU will be in the East Divivion of Conference USA with East Carolina, FAU (natch), Marshall, Middle Tennessee State, Southern Mississippi and Alabama-Birmingham. Old Dominion will join the East in 2014. For football, FIU plays everyone else in the East and two teams from the West (North Texas, Rice, Tulane, Louisiana Tech, Tulsa, Texas-El Paso, Texas-San Antonio).

The Panthers conference home games this season will be against East Carolina, Marshall, Louisiana Tech and UAB. FIU's road conference games will be against Middle, FAU, Southern Miss and UTEP. Or, in my language, "Nashville, a nice drive, Favreville and Border Town (Not Packing Heat, But Might Pack Kevlar)."

So in no specific order our 2013 Schedule looks like this:

At Maryland (Aug 31)

UCF (Sep 7)

Bethune (Sep 14)

At Louisville (Sep 21)

East Carolina (Home)

Marshall (Home)

Louisiana Tech (Home) former Sunbelt team..

UAB (Home)

Middle Tennessee (Away)

At FAU (Nov 16) most likely date

Southern Miss (Away)

UTEP (Away) far trip..

Better question is "How many games will we win"?

Is the first week of College Football Aug 31 or Aug 24? I hope we are NOT starting the season with a Bye-Week. That's the biggest mistake a team can make before the season even starts.. Anyone know the answer to this?!?!?!?!

first week of the season is Aug. 31st. L-Tech was a Sun Belt school back in the day, but not while we were a member. They've been a WAC school for football for a while. Home schedule looks great!

Schedule look great.

Home schedule is a huge improvement.

We get ECU and Marshall at home...with UCF. That's three great home games!!

Bethume should be fun along with La.Tech.

Hahaha... love the schedule!!!

You're right Chia the schedule looks awesome. Hopefully the students and alumni can pack the Cage.

Home advantage is really important though it may not really affect the game if you are really concentrated and determine to win.
