DALLAS - North Texas will take on Middle Tennessee and Charlotte in the 2019 and 2020 seasons as its divisional crossover opponents, Conference USA announced Wednesday.
The cross-division opponents for the next two seasons are part of an eight-year rotation that will see every school from one division play every school from the other division home and away by the end of the cycle.
In 2019, UNT will host Middle Tennessee and travel to Charlotte, and in 2020 will travel to Murfreesboro, Tennessee, and host the 49ers. The Mean Green last hosted Middle Tennessee, the 2018 Eastern Division champion, in 2016, and North Texas is slated to make its first trip to Charlotte next season.
Additionally, all 2019 intra-division games will take place at the opposite location of the 2018 meeting.
Dates for all 2019 games will be announced sometime later this winter. The 2019 campaign is a 14-week season, beginning the weekend of August 31 and ending November 30. The league's 15th annual championship game is expected to be played on Saturday, December 7.
