CMU's 2010 Football Schedule
1.vs. Hampton (CMU’s home & season opener – on the Thursday night before Labor Day)
2.at Temple* (MAC Opener)
3.at Eastern Michigan*
5.vs. Ball State*
6.at Virginia Tech
7.vs. Miami (Ohio)*
8.at Northern Illinois*
9.vs. Bowling Green*
10.vs. Western Michigan* (Set to be a Friday night on ESPN)
12.at Toledo* (Either Tuesday before or Friday after Thanksgiving)
All games unless otherwise noted will be on a Saturday. The Friday date with Western will be in November when the high school season is past the regular season and most playoff games will be taking place on Saturdays, making this game accessible to most people. Also, a Friday night is much more manageable than a Wednesday night for this game.
The schedule is tough. Opening MAC play at Temple at week two will be no easy task and ending the year at Toledo could be a huge game to play on the road, but otherwise, most games are balanced out. Just one 3-game road trip this season is a nice break. There won’t really be a bye week in the schedule, but their should be an extended break between games late in the season, revolving around that Western Michigan game, which will be viewed as a mid-week game instead of a Saturday game.
