USF Football Schedule Rearranged To Make Up Canceled UConn Game

New, 15 comments

The American Athletic Conference worked with a lot of schools to make a lot of changes. Here is USF’s situation.

The USF vs UConn football game, originally scheduled for September 9 but cancelled due to Hurricane Irma, has now been rescheduled for November 4 in Connecticut.

To make room for that game, two USF home games were adjusted. The Cincinnati game at Raymond James Stadium was moved up two weeks to October 14, and the Bearcats become the homecoming opponent.

The Houston game was pushed up a week to that October 28 spot to make room for the now rescheduled UConn game. No new kickoff times have been announced for these two games.

The UMass game, originally scheduled for October 14, will not be played this season.

Got that?

Bottom line is the Bulls now play 11 games, including a full conference schedule, and they get to keep both bye weeks on their originally scheduled dates.

There were a lot of moving pieces in all of this and credit to Jamie for somewhat sorta predicting this correctly last week. It’s very important to get the full conference slate played, and now USF will get to do just that.

What does this mean for the other five conference schools impacted by this? Well, that gets pretty confusing and you can read all about it here. If you are a USF season ticket member worried about ticket issues, the school released info about that as well.
