"I think these are two fine opponents added to our schedule," said Evans. "UAB's program has been building and they played in a bowl game last year. Of course, Colorado has one of the great college football traditions in one of the country's top conferences, the Big 12. We think both these games in Athens and the one in Boulder will be very attractive to our fans."
The Colorado series was made possible by the addition of the 12th regular-season game as part of recent NCAA legislation.
