Rice game to be televised by FOX College Sports
IRVING — Conference USA (C-USA) officials announced Friday that the Oct. 13 football game between Rice and UTSA will be televised by FOX College Sports (FCS). Kickoff remains 2:30 p.m. at Rice Stadium and it will mark the first-ever meeting between the future C-USA opponents.
FCS is available to approximately 68 million homes and its key partners include AT&T U-Verse, Cable One, Cablevision Systems, Charter Communications, Comcast, Cox Communications, DirecTV, Mediacom Communications, Time Warner Cable and Verizon FiOS.

The Roadrunners now will appear on television two times this season, as it was announced last month by the Western Athletic Conference (WAC) that their Nov. 3 contest at Louisiana Tech will be broadcast on ESPN Regional Television (syndication).
UTSA will begin its second season of play at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 30, at South Alabama. The Roadrunners are coming off a 4-6 inaugural campaign that saw them establish new NCAA startup program records for first-game (56,743) and single-season (35,521) attendance.
Season tickets currently are on sale for the upcoming season, which will be the program's first and only in the WAC before they move to Conference USA in 2013.
