Taken from DMc’s 12/3 story.
In a century of football, UCA has had 17 seasons of nine wins or more, five under Conque.
UCA returns 15 to 16 starters and 40-plus lettermen next season. Supplementing that will be 13 scholarship athletes, who were redshirted, from what Conque terms an outstanding freshmen class.
NEXT YEAR’S SCHEDULE: The Bears will open on a Thursday night against Incarnate Word, a new Southland Conference member, but ineligible for a title. The McNeese State game has been moved to Sept. 28. The Bears will have road games at the University of Colorado, Missouri State and UT Martin. The open date will be at the middle of the season — either Oct. 5th or 12th.
So, from digging around, it looks like the SLC schools know all of their conference schedule. SFA has their entire 2013 schedule posted.
Unfortunately, it’s the only one available to help fill in the blanks. BearCountry points out in the comments that Northwestern State also has posted their 2013 schedule now and that the Sam Houston fans have correctly noted that they will be heading back to Conway in 2013.

Other games expected: Sam Houston, at Nicholls, at Lamar, Southeastern Louisiana, at Missouri State.
45 home games. 6 road games. 1 game still TBD. The good news is the two out-of-conference FCS games are as close or closer than the conference road games. So, get ready for two easy road trips.
