    Akron’s opponents do not look correct. I think 2015 was posted and not 2016.

    Much more sensible scheduling model with 12 teams as opposed to 13 now that UMass is gone. Can play 5 divisional plus 3 rotating from the other division, and thus get to play all teams in the conference home and away over 4 seasons.

    Liking CMU’s schedule, fairly favorable.

      Really? At Northern Illinois and at Toledo. That’s favorable?

      NIU is trending down and CMU have defeated them 2 years in a row, and they have to play Toledo every year anyways. Having WMU and Ohio at home is favorable, and the rest of the games should be W’s.

    Since BG & Toledo are in opposite divisions and play each other every year there isn’t a true rotation. It will be better with UMASS gone and each division having six teams but they still won’t have a true rotation because of the BG – Toledo rivalry game.
