“We are excited that we are able to announce this series, both for our program and our fans,” said 49ers Director of Athletics Judy Rose. “This is another step in the many that we have taken in the development of our program. With our move to the FBS and into Conference USA, we have continued to upgrade our schedule. Today is another important step.”
