Conference USA has announced its football schedule for the 2017 season.  The 14-team alignment for the 2017 season will feature each team playing eight conference games, along with four non-league contests.

The 2017 alignment will feature seven teams in the East Division and seven teams in the West Division.  Charlotte, FIU, Florida Atlantic, Marshall, Middle Tennessee, Old Dominion and WKU comprise the East Division, while Louisiana Tech, North Texas, Rice, Southern Miss, UAB, UTEP and UTSA make up the West Division.
 
Each school will play every team in its division once for six games, while playing two cross-over opponents from the opposite division.  After having stand-alone schedules for the past four seasons due to realignment, the 2017 season marks the return to a multi-year schedule rotation that will be in place for the next several seasons.  Due to the move from 13 teams to 14 teams for 2017, a couple of teams will play division opponents at the same location as 2016, a situation that was unavoidable with the West Division moving from six teams to seven.
 
The 2017 schedule complies with C-USA scheduling policies as approved by the Board of Directors.  In addition, the schedule provides the following:

  • All teams finish their Conference schedule with two games of one at home and one away.
  • Nearly all teams have two home games and two away games in the first half of the Conference schedule as well as the second half of the Conference schedule; and
  • All bye weeks take place between weeks four and nine. 

It is important to note that all games are subject to date changes and some dates are expected to move in the coming weeks in order accommodate national television.

A schedule of televised games will be released at a later date.  Conference USA’s 13th annual Championship Game, pitting the champions of the East and West Divisions, is scheduled for Saturday, December 2.
