USF's first 2 games set for night kickoffs
At least one-third of the Bulls' 2016 contests will be staged under the lights, the American Athletic Conference confirmed Wednesday.
The league announced USF's first two games, home contests against Towson and Northern Illinois, both will kick off at 7 p.m. So will its back-to-back Friday games, at Temple (Oct. 21) and at home against Navy (Oct. 28).
The NIU game will be broadcast on the CBS Sports Network. The Temple game will be broadcast on ESPN, the Navy contest on ESPN2.
Starting times for the other seven games likely won't be determined until 12 days before the kickoff of each, as the AAC's network partners exercise their 12-day selection window.
ABC or ESPN will televise the AAC title game, to kick off at noon on Dec. 3. Other conference games with set starting times/broadcast information can be found here.
