NCAA To Provide Competition For High School Games On Fridays
Published May 1, 2001
In a time slot "previously sacred" to high school football, the Mountain West, Western Athletic and Conference USA have scheduled a total of six football games on Friday nights next season, five to be televised by ESPN, according to USA TODAY's Steve Wieberg, who notes the change is due to the NCAA's decision last week to "remove its restriction on the telecast" of Friday night games (USA TODAY, 5/1).
