BIRMINGHAM, Ala. ----- Three 2013 UAB football games are part of the preliminary television schedule announced Tuesday by the Conference USA office.
The current confirmed schedule features more than 50 games to air nationally or regionally, with additional contests to be added prior to beginning of the season. National games will be televised on Fox Sports Net (FSN), CBS Sports Network and ESPN.
The Blazers' three games slated for television at this time are all Conference USA contests. UAB's Saturday, Oct. 12 game at first-year C-USA member FIU will be televised by CSS as will the Blazers' Saturday, Nov. 9 matchup at Marshall. Times for both of those games will be announced at a later date.
UAB will also be televised when it plays host to Rice on Thursday, Nov. 21. The game with the Owls at Legion Field will kick off at 6:30 p.m. CT and will be televised by Fox Sports.
Additional Conference USA television exposures remain a possibility (including games that are guaranteed to be televised as part of other conference's television packages).
