Conference USA announced on Thursday its preliminary television schedule for the 2014 football season which includes seven Rice football games to their various broadcast packages. The 2013 C-USA Champions now have 10 of 12 regular season games set for broadcast.
Fox Sports added six Owls games including each of their four home conference date (Old Dominion 9/20; North Texas 10/25; UTSA 11/8 and UTEP on 11/21) in addition to road contests at Southern Miss (9/27) and Marshal (11/15). CBS Sports Network has picked up the 2014 regular season finale at Louisiana Tech.
The matchup with Southern Miss will be carried on Fox College Sports while the Friday night home finale with UTEP is set for Fox Sports 1 and will kick off at 7:00 p.m. The other four Fox games will receive their final network assignment (either FSN or Fox Sports 1) and game times 12 days prior to being played.
The 2014 football season marks the fourth year of a multi-platform media rights agreement between Conference USA and FOX Sports to broadcast a minimum of 20 games. FOX Sports 1, FOX's new national sports cable network, is scheduled to televise a minimum of 10 regular-season Conference USA football games. Additional games will again be carried nationally on FOX Sports Networks owned-and-affiliated regional networks, which reach more than 85 million homes and FOX College Sports.
This season marks the 10th year of C-USA's partnership with CBS Sports Network that includes significant national and regional exposure for football, men's and women's basketball and other C-USA sports. CBS Sports Network is the 24-hour home of CBS Sports and is available to more than 99 million households across the country.
