CUSA doing its own MACtion - pvk75 - 11-09-2022 05:47 PM

Weekday (Tues Weds) MACtion football in November will no longer be an exclusive idea. CUSA's new deal will put their games on Tuesday and Wednesday in October. (Picked up from main forum board). Wonder what they'll call it. Also note ... October games have potentially better weather.

Also noted SBC has a ton of games on Thursdays, so MAC squeezed out there.

Hopefully they negotiated only one or two games per weekday with ESPN or ESPN2 coverage only. Don't get shafted like the MAC with ESPNU and ESPN3/+ on weekdays.

Essentially football every day of the week for the months of Oct and Nov.

No offense, it is not only October when there is better weather for CUSA games. Unless the jet stream dips and brings colder weather to Middle Tennessee or Western Kentucky, CUSA doesn't have to worry much.
