      Arizona OOC schedule lacks a P5 program for the next three seasons,and same last season (unless you consider BYU). Is this weak scheduling done on purpose to give RichRod extra time to build his program? Or is Arizona just having difficult bringing in P5 programs to Tucson? Or just a bad job by a previous Arizona AD? I see in future years the Wildcats have home-and-homes scheduled with Texas Tech, Miss St, Kansas St and Nebraska,

      Home-and-homes with Houston and UTEP, and also Texas Tech in 2019-20. They need games in Texas for recruiting

      So the game at VPI will be on a Friday? That is what day August 30th falls on in 2030.

      Arizona OOC schedules:

      2013 @UNLV / UTSA / No Arizona
      2014 Nevada / UNLV / @UTSA
      2015 @Nevada / UTSA / No Arizona
      2016 @BYU (Glendale) / Hawaii / Grambling St
      2017 Houston / @UTEP / TBA
      2018 @Houston / BYU / UTEP

      Recruiting aside, Arizona’s SOS is getting hurt by not scheduling a P5 program. But lucky for Arizona, Houston has became relevant once again. But will they be in 2017-18? Or maybe Arizona just doesn’t think they’ll ever be in position for the CFP and so SOS doesn’t matter?

      And if B12 expands and takes Houston and BYU (which I’m betting on) Arizona’s future OOC schedule could be in for big changes. But expansion probably won;t happen until 2019 season, at its earliest.

      Is an Alabama-Arizona at Arlington game still in the cards for 2020?

      Again Arizona needs a P5 OOC opponent in 2017. So how about a Arizona-TCU neutral site game in Houston or at Arlington in 2017?

      Or is UA going to settle for a FCS opponent and go without a P5 opponent in 2017 just like Miss St, WSU, Utah, Colorado, and Kansas?

      Illinois is not playing a P5 OOC opponent 2017-20 and same with Wisconsin in 2017-19.

      Conference bottomfeeders schedule like bottomfeeders. But does Wisconsin really want to become irrelevant again?

      Nebraska has also wrapped up a second future series with Oklahoma…

      Most of those meetings came between 1932 and 1956 when both schools (then known as Arizona State Teachers College-Tempe and Texas Technological College) were members of the Border Intercollegiate Athletic Association.

        That’s some information right there.

        Thanks Bill (the one that’s commenting for years; not the newbie), but the college you refer to is now known as Arizona State. University of Arizona has always been known by its current name. However, you are correct in stating that both were members of the Border Intercollegiate Athletic Association and that most (56.25% to be exact) of those games between the two came during that time.

        On a completed unrelated note, is there a reason you attach ” (the one that’s commenting for years; not the newbie)” to your name when commenting. I rarely see any other Bill commenting, and wouldn’t an initial suffice better? Just saying…

      “Texas Tech is only the second Power Five opponent on Arizona’s future schedules. The Wildcats are also set to face Mississippi State in 2022 and 2023.”

      BYU is a Power Five opponent,* and they are also on Arizona’s future schedules.

        They are considered Power Five by those conferences for scheduling purposes only. They aren’t a member of a Power Five conference, which is what I was looking in in terms of future opponents.

        Washington has only 2 power 5 teams OOC teams on their future schedule, Michigan in 2020/2021 and a very bland 2 games with an unattractive Rutgers in 2016/2017. I’d tae Arizona’s OOC schedules any day as they are not filled with 8 Big Sky games over the next 7 years like former power Washington has scheduled. These are not your Don James schedules or teams.

        Kevin, I agree with Hank. I get what you are saying, but the way it’s worded in the article may be misleading or ambiguous. Perhaps you should reword to: “Texas Tech is only the second OPPONENT FROM A Power Five CONFERENCE on Arizona’s future schedules. The Wildcats are also set to face Mississippi State in 2022 and 2023.”

      Art Briles looks at a series like this and feels compelled to schedule another game with Incarnate Word.

      • Dave

        Maybe Art will look overseas and schedule Incarnate World. Baylor is the joke of the country now in scheduling.
