Here is the 2021 schedule for C-USA. The league has 14 teams, divided into 2 divisions with 7 teams aside.

The East: Florida Atlantic, Florida International, Marshall, Middle Tennessee, Old Dominion, UNC Charlotte, & Western Kentucky.

The West consists of: Louisiana Tech, North Texas, Rice, Southern Miss, Texas San Antonio, UAB, & UTEP!

C-USA, which is a member of the Group of 5 (G5), plays 8 conference games and 4 Non-Conference. They will line it up 112 times for conference tilts and 56 NC battles.

USA will take on a Power 5 opponent 16 times in 2021 or 29% of their NC schedule (ACC: 4 Games; B-10: 4; B-12: 2; PAC-12: DNP; & SEC: 6!

They will play 26 G5 teams or 46% of their NC schedule will be played against other Group of 5 opponents. C-USA will line it up vs the AAC: 7 Games; MAC: 2; MWC: 4; SBC: 6; & IND: 7!

Finally, the league will play 14 teams from the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) or teams that may award up 63 scholarships, not more that the 63, but can award fewer.

The FBS (Football Bowl Subdivision) must provide 85 scholarships in football to maintain their status as members of this subdivision. Each team in Conference USA is playing 1 FCS opponent.

It should be noted, that for an FBS team to become bowl eligible, they must win 6 games. One of the 6 wins can be against an FCS team, but only one. If a FBS team were to schedule 2 FCS opponents, it would know in advance that only one of those potential wins would count toward the 6 wins needed to qualify for a bowl!
