Mountain East Reveals 2013-14 Conference Football Schedules

Posted: Updated:
WHEELING -

The Mountain East Conference released on Friday the conference football schedules for both the 2013 and 2014 seasons.

For its inaugural season in 2013, the conference has compiled a 9-game schedule in order to accommodate to the Week 1 non-conference obligations. The league will increase its schedule in 2014 to a 10-game slate.

"This is a very exciting time for the Mountain East Conference," conference Commissioner Reid
Amos said. "As we grow toward a 10-game MEC schedule in 2014, all signs suggest that the MEC will be a highly competitive conference that will position its teams well for increased opportunities in NCAA competition. This format will ultimately keep our many strong rivalries intact and will create some new rivalries."

The Mountain East originally announced its formation in August 2012, then submitted credentials in December 2012 to seek approval from the NCAA for full membership in Division II athletics. The new league's charter members include Concord University, Fairmont State University, Glenville State College, Notre Dame College (Ohio), Shepherd University, The University of Charleston, the University of Virginia's College at Wise (Va,), Urbana University (Ohio), West Liberty University, West Virginia State University, and West Virginia Wesleyan College. The twelfth member, Wheeling Jesuit, currently sponsors 20 NCAA-II sports, but does not offer football.

"Scheduling non-conference games had become increasingly difficult for our members with the trend toward more conference play by surrounding conferences," Amos added. "The formation of the new Mountain East Conference provides our members with a 9-game conference schedule in year one and a 10-game league slate thereafter. This is very advantageous for many reasons and will add excitement with conference play coming earlier in our schedules."

Pending NCAA approval for competition in 2013-14, the MEC would meet NCAA requirement for conference championships in 16 sports.
