United Athletic Conference releases revised 2024 football schedule

By Kevin Kelley -

The United Athletic Conference (UAC) has released a revised 2024 football schedule following the departure of Stephen F. Austin from the conference.

The UAC previously announced its 2024 football schedule on November 14. Just over six months later on May 30, Stephen F. Austin announced that they were moving back to the Southland Conference officially on July 1, 2024.

With the change, the UAC will have nine member institutions in 2024 — Abilene Christian, Austin Peay, Central Arkansas, Eastern Kentucky, North Alabama, Southern Utah, Tarleton State, Utah Tech, and West Georgia.

Each UAC team will still play an eight-game conference schedule, but it will be a full round-robin. Teams can also play a total of 12 games in 2024 due to NCAA bylaws and the calendar. The last time this occurred was the 2019 season and it will naturally occur again in 2025.

Kickoff times and television designations will be announced at a later date.

FYI – I think that Abilene Christian versus West Georgia is now a conference game. This game was originally proposed as a non-conference game. But with the departure of Stephen F. Austin and the full round robin format, tis now must be the eighth conference game for both teams.

That is what was reported in the story related to this. Each of the 9 teams now have 8 conference games.

Each team previously had eight conference games. West Georgia was previously scheduled to play SFA in a conference game and ACU in a non-conference game. With SFA out, West Georgia-ACU was changed to a UAC contest.

Not sure what was so fantastic, again, I got all this in the piece and didn’t need further explanation “Each UAC team will still play an eight-game conference schedule, but it will be a full round-robin” I don’t find there was a scoop here. It’s pretty simple math, one from ten is nine. What’s more disturbing that SFA created all of this mess with no consequence.
