Middle Tennessee State’s 2014 football schedule looks a lot like 2013, with one glaring difference. Western Kentucky is back on the Blue Raiders’ slate after a one-year absence while the schools played in different leagues. WKU is leaving the Sun Belt and joining MTSU in Conference USA for the 2014 season. They are scheduled to meet Sept. 13 at MTSU’s Floyd Stadium as both teams’ C-USA opener. Coming off back-to-back eight-win seasons, MTSU will play eight C-USA games and four nonconference ones. The latter list features: an Aug. 30 season-opener at home vs. FCS school Savannah State; a Sept. 6 trip to Big Ten member Minnesota; a Sept. 20 game at Memphis; and a Nov. 1 home game against BYU in between a pair of bye weeks. In C-USA play, the Blue Raiders will host WKU (Sept. 13), Southern Miss (Oct. 4), UAB (Oct. 18) and Florida Atlantic (Nov. 22). League road games include trips to Old Dominion (Sept. 27), Marshall (Oct. 11), Florida International (Nov. 15) and UTEP (Nov. 29). “I think we have a very attractive home schedule with Western Kentucky, Southern Miss and UAB all in a row to get things started in league play,” MTSU athletics director Chris Massaro said. “Then you bring in a nationally recognized program like BYU and close the year with a very strong FAU team, and I think you have something our fans will be excited about.”
