Charleston, SC (SportsNetwork.com) - The NCAA granted Charleston Southern a
waiver to play a 13th regular-season game on Oct. 19 at the University of
The game comes as a result of Colorado canceling its game with Fresno State on
Sept. 14 due to record rainfall and damaging floods in the Boulder area. Those
schools didn't reach a deal for a makeup date.
Charleston Southern, which has a 5-0 record, will not have a bye week.
"Obviously, adding a game at this point in the season is a unique situation,"
Buccaneers coach Jamey Chadwell said. "It is a big opportunity for us, though.
It's a chance for us to showcase Charleston Southern University and our
football program against a Pac-12 school for the first time. Also, playing this
type of game against a quality opponent like Colorado provides long-term
benefits for our program."
The kickoff time will be determined once the Pac-12 Conference sets the
television schedule for Oct. 19 next Monday.
