Utah State [University] Athletics announced Tuesday [April 8, 2014] that dates for its road games at Tennessee and at Arkansas State during the 2014 season have been changed.


Utah State’s season opener at Tennessee will now be played on Sunday, Aug. 31, after originally scheduling the contest for Aug. 30. The game, which will be televised nationally on the newly created SEC Network, will kickoff at 5 p.m. (MT), marking the first known time in program history that USU will play a football game on Sunday. The SEC Network, which is scheduled for launch on August 14, 2014, will be available coast to coast on the DISH Network.


Utah State’s game at Tennessee will be the first-ever meeting between the two programs and it will be USU’s 18th game against a Southeastern Conference member with its last meeting being a 42-38 loss at defending national champion Auburn to begin the 2011 campaign.


Additionally, Utah State’s road game at Arkansas State will now be played on Saturday, Sept. 20, rather than Sept. 27, moving USU’s only bye of the 2014 season back one weekend.


Utah State is 3-2 all-time against the Red Wolves as the two teams played Big West Conference games against one another in 1995, 1999 and 2000, and later spent two years together as league foes in the Sun Belt in 2003 and 2004. ASU won the last meeting between the two teams, 16-7, in Jonesboro on Nov. 11, 2004.


“Opening at Tennessee on the SEC Network on Sunday night will be a neat experience for our players and great exposure for our program,” said USU head coach Matt Wells. “Moving the Arkansas State game up one weekend gives us a chance to better manage our schedule as we will have two home games and two road games before our bye, and now nine regular season games after the bye instead of 10.”
