The conference is in the second year of a rotation between cross-division opponents that will rotate every two years until 2024, when each school has played every opponent in the opposite division once home and away.
The 2018 schedule complies with C-USA scheduling policies as approved by the Board of Directors. In addition, the schedule provides the following:
• All teams finish their conference schedule with two games of one at home and one away.
• Nearly all teams have two home games and two away games in the first half of the conference schedule, as well as the second half of the conference schedule; and
• At least one conference game in all but the opening weekend of the season.
It is important to note that all games are subject to date changes and some dates are expected to move in the coming weeks in order accommodate national television.
