With never a moment to waste, the American Athletic Conference has already put its composite football schedule dates for the upcoming 2019 season for USF, UCF and all their schools out on Thursday.
While ESPN is in virtual total control of the game times, and may even end up moving a game or two off of a certain date later this year, the AAC has listed its schedule on its official site:

For defending Champion UCF, we already knew their out of conference schedule. It lays out like this: the Knights will host Florida A&M in their opener on Thursday night August 29th at Spectrum Stadium.
UCF will then travel to Boca Raton to play Florida Atlantic the following Saturday. That will be followed by hosting Pac-12 perennial power Stanford back in Orlando on September 14th before finishing the non-conference slate at Pitt the following week.
Coach Josh Heupel’s Knights will open AAC play at home on Saturday September 28th playing UConn. Curiously, the Knights opened with the same Huskies a year ago and destroyed them in Connecticut to begin 2018 march to another unbeaten regular season.
UCF will play a Friday night “stand alone” conference battle at Cincinnati on October 4th, and then, after an off week will take on East Carolina at home on October 19th. The Knights are at Temple the following week before hosting Houston on Saturday November 2nd.
UCF has another Friday night nationally televised game at Tulsa November 8th, and then, after a bye week will play at Tulane on Saturday November 23rd. They’re traditional Friday day after Thanksgiving game with USF will be at Spectrum Stadium on November 29th.
For the Bulls, we already knew their out of conference schedule, as well. They will begin playing Friday August 30th at home against Big Ten power Wisconsin, and then, play another Power Five team the following week on Saturday September 7th at Georgia Tech.
The Bulls get a bit of a breather on Saturday September 14th with South Carolina State at home and then, take a week off.
USF opens conference play at home with SMU at Raymond James Stadium on September 28th. The Bulls play UConn the following week in Connecticut, and then, come back home to play out of conference BYU on October 12th.
USF will travel to the Naval Academy in conference play on October 19th and stay on the road for October 26th in a match-up at East Carolina.
Charlie Strong’s Bulls get a “stand alone” national television game at home with Temple on Thursday night November 7th and then, they’ll play Cincinnati nine days later at Raymond James Stadium on November 16th.
