The Nevada Wolf Pack have scheduled a home-and-home football series with the USF Bulls for 2012 and 2015, Nevada and USF announced this morning.
Nevada will host USF at Mackay Stadium in Reno on September 8, 2012. The Wolf Pack will then travel to face the Bulls at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa on October 3, 2015. The game in 2012 will be the first ever meeting between the schools.
The announcement of this series completes South Florida’s 2012 non-conference schedule. The Bulls will host Chattanooga (Sept. 1) and Florida State (Sept. 29) and travel to Ball State (Sept. 22) and Miami, FL (Nov. 24).
USF’s conference schedule remains in flux due to West Virginia’s lawsuit against the Big East. Unless further changes are made, USF will host Big East foes Connecticut, Pittsburgh, Rutgers and Syracuse and travel to play Cincinnati and Louisville.
Nevada has also completed its 2012 non-conference schedule. The Wolf Pack are slated to host Northwestern State (Sept. 15) and travel to California (Sept. 1) and Texas State (Sept. 29). Nevada could add one more non-conference game if they desire due to the Hawaii Exemption.
2012 will be Nevada’s first season in the Mountain West. They will host Boise State, Fresno State, San Diego State and Wyoming and travel to Air Force, Hawaii, New Mexico and UNLV.
a decent enough game and two nice travel spots. A long ways for mid major football teams to travel and expect attendence around 10k at each venue oh well perhaps espn is sending a pile of money to each school to play the game
