UH Releases First Big East Schedule, Looks Much Like A Conference USA Schedule

The Cougs have released their innaugural Big East football schedule. It's not so Big and certainly not East.

Their first conference game is Sept. 7 at Temple. The regular season begins with a Friday game against Southern on Aug. 30.  UH is still working out where they will play while their new stadium is constructed. They'll play at Reliant but depending on the Texans schedule they're not quite sure the dates. Potential options could be Rice Stadium, BBVA Compass Stadium and Minute Maid Park.

How about the Dome Cougs? It was fine for you in the 80's.

Here's the schedule... 

Southern (Aug. 30)

 @Temple (Sept. 7)

Rice (Sept. 21)

 @UTSA (Sept. 28)

Memphis (Oct. 12) 

BYU (Oct. 19)

 @Rutgers (Oct. 26)

USF (Oct. 31)

@UCF (Nov. 9)  

@Louisville (Nov. 16) 

Cincinnati (Nov. 23)

SMU (Nov. 29)

Look familiar? 8 of the 12 games are against former or current C-USA members.
