Revised LA Tech football schedule released

With Tuesday’s news that Southern Miss, Marshall and ODU would be departing Conference USA at the end of June, the league has released the updated 2022 football schedules Wednesday.

While the first four weeks stay the same with the non-conference portion of the schedule, the entire eight-game league slate is revised.

Tech will have its bye week on Oct. 1 and then will play eight straight weeks of Conference USA contests with home games against UTEP, Rice, Middle Tennessee and UAB and road games at North Texas, FIU, UTSA and Charlotte.

This will be the inaugural season under new head coach Sonny Cumbie, who brings a high-octane offensive philosophy and a hard-hitting, physical defensive style to Ruston.

Kickoff times, promotional schedules and Homecoming date will be announced at a later time.

Louisiana Tech football season tickets for the 2022 campaign will go on sale April 4 at 10 a.m. More information on purchasing season tickets will be released next week.

Tech kicks off the 2022 season at Missouri (Sept. 3) in Columbia, Mo. The Bulldogs will then host their home opener against Stephen F. Austin (Sept. 10) inside Joe Alliet Stadium. Tech hits the road the following two weeks to wrap up the non-conference schedule with visits to Clemson (Sept. 17) and South Alabama (Sept. 24).

Following its bye week, Tech begins the month of October with a return to the Joe for the conference USA opener against UTEP (Oct. 8). The Bulldogs then flip-flop home and away with a visit to North Texas (Oct. 15), followed by hosting Rice (Oct. 22), and a trip to Miami to face-off against FIU (Oct. 29).

LA Tech will open the month of November at home as the Bulldogs host Middle Tennessee (Nov. 5). The Bulldogs will then complete the 2022 schedule with back-to-back road games at UTSA (Nov. 12) and Charlotte (Nov. 19) before closing with a home contest against UAB (Nov. 26).

It is important to note that all games are subject to date changes and some dates are expected to move in the coming weeks in order to accommodate national television. A schedule of televised games will be released at a later date. 

Conference USA’s 18th annual Championship Game is scheduled for Friday, December 2. Details on football championship format will continue to be discussed by the 11 members and released at a later date.
