With the Conference USA football schedule yet to be decided because of UAB shutting down its football program, FIU could find itself playing the same conference opponents from last year but with the sites reversed. New C-USA member Charlotte would take the place of UAB. LaTechReport.com was the first to report this scheduling scenario. CLICK HERE for a link to an article in the Virginian Pilot newspaper. C-USA presidents and athletic directors are in Boca Raton this week at their annual winter meetings.
If the schedule scenario above does happen in 2015 the Panthers would host Charlotte, UTSA, Old Dominion and North Texas and travel to Florida Atlantic, Marshall, Rice and Middle Tennessee. FIU travels for three non-conference games next season at Central Florida, at Indiana and at Massachusetts and hosts UNC-Central.
