UCF, Memphis have schedule changes

UCF, Tulsa and Memphis all have had Saturday games moved to weekdays to accommodate national television, Conference USA announced Thursday.

The Knights will play host to Tulsa on Thursday night, Nov. 3 and UTEP on Friday, Nov. 25. Memphis had its home game against Mississippi State moved up two days to Thursday, Sept. 1. An announcement on television will be made at a later date.

The move is not necessarily a good one for Tulsa. The Golden Hurricane will have a short week to prepare for UCF after hosting an important West Division game against SMU on Oct. 29. UCF has a short week, too, with a home game against Memphis on Oct. 29. But the Tigers are not expected to contend this season.
