The USF football team has agreed to reschedule its game against Pittsburgh to Dec. 4 at Raymond James Stadium.
The game was originally set as the Bulls’ home opener, but due to Hurricane Frances it was postponed.
The game had initially been set to air on ESPN, but there has been difficulty trying to work out a similar deal for the new date.
“We realize it’s important for fans of both programs to be able to plan their Dec. 4 weekend and we’re happy to finalize the date. We join Pittsburgh in continued discussions with ESPN to keep the game televised as originally planned,” Athletic Director Doug Woolard said.
If aired on the 4th, there would be conflict with the SEC Championship at 6 p.m. on CBS and the Big XII Championship at 7 p.m. on ABC.
