Pillow Fight! Uh, we mean, Conference USA football!
The best games involving C-USA programs in 2011 are something to look forward to.
The worst games? Never.

5. UTEP at New Mexico State, September 17

Las Cruces' Aggie Memorial Stadium will host this non-conference game that will look more like tiddlywinks than a clash between C-USA and the Western Athletic Conference. Not sure which team will use its "squidger" to pop a "wink" with more ferocity. Frankly, we don't really care.
Suggested alternative: Expand your Hatch green chile consciousness.
4. Every Tulane home game, September 3 through November 10
The Louisiana Superdome is a top-notch venue when full. But when it's empty, which is what happens each time the Green Wave run out of the tunnel, it feels like an ill-placed mausoleum with exciting rebranding potential. For an extra-special experience, the October 22 home match-up against the lowly Memphis Tigers promises to be a real wing-dinger.
Suggested alternative: Spend four hours gorging yourself on Big Easy-esque beignets
