Missouri adds North Texas to 2021 Football Schedule

By Kevin Kelley -

The Missouri Tigers have added the North Texas Mean Green to their 2021 football schedule, according to Mizzou’s official website.

Missouri will host North Texas at Faurot Field in Columbia on October 16, 2021. The game will be only the second meeting between the two schools. The Tigers won the first meeting 28-7 in Columbia back in 1995.

North Texas is the first non-conference opponent scheduled for Mizzou for the 2021 season.

In SEC play in 2021, the Missouri Tigers are slated to host Florida, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas A&M and travel to Georgia, Kentucky, Vanderbilt, and Arkansas.

North Texas, a member of Conference USA, now has three non-conference games set for 2021. The Mean Green are also scheduled to visit SMU on Sept. 11 and host Army on Oct. 9.

An additional change to Missouri’s future non-conference schedule was also identified. A 2017 trip to face UConn was changed from Sept. 23 to Oct. 28.

    I see that Missouri is doing the SEC thing…Only play 9 regular season games with P5 teams. I think of Baylor when I think of regular season schedules with only 9 teams year after year…But in 2017 even Baylor plays 10 P5 teams…As a matter of fact in 2016 only 25 P5 teams will play a regular season schedule of 9 games with P5 teams. Thirteen of those are in the SEC, eight in the ACC (BC actually only plays 8) ND only plays 9 and oh yes Baylor too.

    When a 2020 game with BYU is the best OOC game on the schedule for the next 5 years even Baylor gets to laugh at you.

    Having that extra bye week of an extra cupcake always helped Baylor.

    Maybe Missouri can call Baylor and ask for help in scheduling Incarnate World?

      Tully, tell us how is your favorite team’s schedule doing and how is their conference doing?

      Missouri will be doing something Baylor won’t be doing in 2017… and 2021… They’ll be playing Florida, Tennessee, Georgia, South Carolina and Arkansas… Baylor won’t play that many decent to good teams between now and 2021… so shut up about who Baylor plays. It doesn’t matter.

      Missouri will play more NFL level players in their SEC schedule next year than most teams will get in two years…

      My point flies right over your SEC brain…In 2016 41 of the 65 P5 programs will play a regular season of at least 10 games with P5 teams. That is 12 teams in the Big 10, including the teams most likely to win the Big 10. 11 of the PAC 12 teams will play at least 10 regular season games with P5 teams. (three PAC 12 teams play 11 regular season games with P5 teams UCLA,USC and Stanford)
      9 of the Big 12 teams will play at least 10 regular season games with P5 teams. (Texas plays 11 Baylor plays 9)
      In the ACC 7 teams play 10 regular season games with P5 teams, which includes the teams most likely to win the ACC.

      In 2016 ND plays only 9 games with P5 teams. As does every SEC team but UGA.

      In 2016 only 24 teams play nine (or less) regular season games with P5 teams. Thirteen of those are in the SEC.

      At some point I expect the CFP reps from each of these conferences to make an issue of teams only playing 9 regular season games with P5 teams.

      In 2017 at this time in the SEC LSU and Florida also go to 10 games with P5 teams. Even Baylor goes to 10 games with P5 teams. In the Big 10 13 teams will play 10 regular season games with P5 teams. In the Big 12 all 12 teams will play at least 10 games with P5 teams. In the ACC 8 teams already have 10 P5 games scheduled (3 have open dates) In the PAC 12 9 teams have 10 games with P5 teams scheduled.

      That will be 45 of 65 teams playing at least 10 games with P5 teams. 11 of the 20 teams which do not have 10 games with P5 teams scheduled are in the SEC.

      So I think at some point what amounts to an extra bye week for these teams not playing at least 10 regular season games with P5 teams will be an issue with the CFB Playoff committee.

      See, here is what people like Tully continue to miss.

      The amount of NFL-level talent in the SEC is unparalleled. Playing in the Big Ten simply isn’t as difficult. Playing in the Pac-12 isn’t as difficult.

      Six SEC teams had at least FIVE players drafted.

      So, even playing ten FBS teams, you’re still not facing the same level of talent SEC teams play in nine games.

      Stop acting like playing Kansas is the same as playing Alabama. It’s not.

    Speaking of not comprehending, again, who is your favorite team and how is their conference doing?
    Anyone can write 20+ lines of B S and not say a thing, you have succeeded.

    So, when the two best SEC teams end up playing at least 10 P5 games (because unlike the conference you’re blablablahing about, the SEC has a championship game), what exactly does Baylor’s having played Kansas, Kansas State, and Iowa State say that makes there once-in-a-lifetime 10-game P5 so much better? Do tell!
