Sep 25 (Sun)   7 p.m.      Away      Houston Baptist University                  Houston, TX                                                      

Oct 4 (Tue)    7 p.m.      Away      College of Charleston                       Charleston, SC                                                    

Oct 8 (Sat)    9 p.m.      Away      San Jose State University                   San Jose, CA                                                      

Oct 11 (Tue)   7 p.m.      Away      Georgia State University                    Atlanta, Ga.                                                      

Oct 15 (Sat)   7 p.m.      Away      Santa Clara University                      Santa Clara, CA

Nov 2 (Wed)    7 p.m.      Away      Bradley University                          Peoria, IL

It appears that UIW was the odd-team in the original 11-team schedule where the travel/host pairs are:

Seattle-San Jose State
CBU-UVU
UNLV-UTU
GCU-AFA
HBU-UTRGV

So it is possible that UIW told the WAC that if they decided to stay in the Southland for all sports that, that they would be leaving the WAC for men's soccer.

San Jose State, Utah Tech, UTRGV, and HBU kept their OOC games (possibly moved to a different date). The WAC generally plays Thursday-Saturday. Other conferences which are more compact play Wednesday-Saturday so there is more rest. There is a proposal now to switch to a fall-spring schedule so that there are mostly once per week matches.

Yes, the schedule is on the website. There is no story along with it, or a mention from UIW Twitter. They are hoping nobody sees it or will ask about their conference affiliation.

Or when they brag about playing the national champs, hope nobody notices it is a D3 juco team.
