PROVIDENCE, R.I. – The American Athletic Conference has announced a number of kickoff times and television designations for the 2014 football season.

Among the game times announced Thursday is the first American Athletic Conference contest of 2014, as Tulane visits Tulsa Aug. 28 on CBS Sports Network. Other times and television listings include Tulsa’s Sept. 6 game against Oklahoma (noon ET on ABC, ESPN or ESPN2), UConn’s Sept. 6 home date against Boise State (Noon ET on ABC, ESPN or ESPN2), and a number of weeknight telecasts on ESPN, ESPN2 or ESPNU.

The American has the most challenging nonconference schedule of any league in 2014, including games against 10 teams that were ranked in the top 25 of last year’s final USA Today Coaches’ Poll (South Carolina, Missouri, Oklahoma, Ohio State, Baylor, UCLA, Texas A&M, Wisconsin, Duke, Vanderbilt) and additional games against BYU (three), Georgia Tech, Miami (Fla.) and Penn State.

The American capped a successful inaugural season in 2013 with UCF’s win against Big 12 champion Baylor in the Fiesta Bowl. The American joined the Big Ten and SEC as the only conferences with two 12-win teams under its banner.
