TV football, a transfer, an All-American, some All-Sun Belts

FIU's Sept. 7 game against Central Florida will be a noon affair at FIU Stadium on CBS Sports Network. So get out your sunscreen and pace your consumption or else, well, the barfing in the heat won't be confined to the field.

Also on the Conference USA TV schedule announced Monday, the Shula Bowl at FAU will be at 3 p.m. on Fox Sports on Black Friday. Try not to get trampled.

The Saturday before, Nov. 23, Fox Sports will have FIU's home game against Marshall. The time for that game, as well as Comcast Sports Southeast games at Southern Mississippi (Oct. 5) and home to Alabama-Birmingham (Oct. 12), remain undecided.

Marshall wide receiver Jermain Kelson has transferred to FIU with one season of eligibility left. Kelson played quarterback at Southridge before switching to wide receiver at Marshall. Over the last two seasons, he caught 30 passes for 277 yards.

SAND VOLLEYBALL

FIU's Kate Stepanova earned All-America recognition from the American Volleyball Coaches Association.

SOFTBALL

On the eve of FIU's Sun Belt Conference tournament opener against Louisiana-Lafayette, FIU seniors Brie Rojas (second base) and Amber Curry (at large) were named to the All-Sun Belt Second Team.

For 27-26 (10-13) FIU, Rojas hit .275 with a team-high nine doubles, five home runs and 65 total bases. Curry had a team-high .417 on base percentage and .462 slugging percentage.

And, because it's a May night...
