Conference USA releases one-year schedule for 13-team league
IRVING, Texas -- Conference USA on Monday released its 2014 football schedule, a one-year model for a season with 13 conference teams.
Each team will play eight conference games.
The six-team West Division includes Louisiana Tech, North Texas, Rice, Southern Miss, UTEP and UTSA. They play each other, and face three East Division teams.
FIU, Florida Atlantic, Marshall, Middle Tennessee, Old Dominion, UAB and WKU make up the seven-team East Division.
Florida Atlantic, Marshall and Middle Tennessee will each play the other six East teams, plus two West teams. The other East teams will play five East teams and three West teams.
Because of the uneven number of East teams, two intra-division matchups won't be played: Old Dominion vs. UAB and WKU vs. FIU.
Charlotte becomes the 14th team in 2015.
