      This is a cute article, I would’ve kept out A&M vs UTSA since this is their 1st ever meeting.

      If you watched the 2014 Georgia Southern @ Georgia Tech game or better yet, if you attended the game, then you would know the ACC referees took the game out of the players hands with a terrible reversal of an ON THE FIELD call (requires indisputable evidence…it’s still being disputed). Georgia Southern was the better team that day and still has the more dynamic roster. Thank you Paul Johnson and the Tech AD for not being scared (UGAg) and rescheduling the Eagles…GS won’t leave it in question this go around. It would be great for the state if GS and Tech continued to schedule a game (maybe a H&H once Paulson Stadium is expanded to 30k) every other year. Athletically, as of late, the two schools are closer to peers than big brother-little brother.

        Georgia has played Georgia Southern six times since 1992, Georgia Tech only once. I don’t think Georgia is scared of GS.

      • Hail Southern!
        August 10, 2016 at 5:09 pm

        Interesting that 5 of those 6 times were when Georgia Southern had 63 scholarships. The 6th game was a carry over from GS’s FCS days and Georgia elected to move the game from 2016 to 2015 probably because they didn’t want an additional year of FBS recruiting for GS. Georgia was gifted that win last year and every dawg fan knows it. For both parties, it is understood that Georgia no longer wants any part in scheduling GS and frankly that’s fine by me.

        Don’t worry Kevin Kelly, that’s just GS non-sense talk. They told GSU that they’d never beat GS – but in the just the second meeting (last year) GSU gave them their worst defeat in the history of Paulson High School County Stadium, The glory days of GS are behind them. The newsflash to GS is that they are the #4 team in the state of Georgia and they think that they are #1.

      • William Satterwhite
        August 11, 2016 at 4:33 pm

        Georgia Tech got up big in that game and then let up and allowed Georgia Southern back in, the Eagles were far from the better team that day.

      • H
        August 11, 2016 at 5:34 pm

        Georgia Southern’s coach was on his way out and focused on a million dollar salary…way to go. How’d that bowl game work out for the mighty Panthers? Let’s compare some numbers for a minute…17-53 (129th in FBS) vs. 375-200-10 (14th in FBS)…0 D1 National Championships vs. 6 D1 National Championships (most all-time)…0 D1 Conference Titles vs. 11 D1 Conference Titles. WHEW! I can certainly understand why a Panther fan (those exist?) would cling like hell to that win against Georgia Southern! Run along now, let us men get back to it.

      • Atlanta_Mafia
        August 12, 2016 at 7:11 pm

        GS has never beat UGA – GS has never beat GT – GS is 50/50 against GSU.
        So your excuse is that GS got pounded at home by GSU cause your coach was dreaming about a real job? Really? That’s all it took for the mighty Beagles to lose at home? A coach’s daydream? All that tripe that GS spews about GSU and you got pounded in just the second effing year by a five year old football team? Fact is that Richt got fired because he almost lost to GS so that should tell you about how little respect there is for the GS product. So maybe GS needs to realize that they may start to fall behind KSU or Mercer. You guys have such an incredible false sense of entitlement from all those Pee-Wee league trophies. Probably ought to go on back to FCS Pee-Wee league! How about that Capt GAyTAy?

      • Hail Southern!
        August 13, 2016 at 1:11 pm

        The Real GSU has played UGA and GT once with equal scholarships. Do you understand that having 22 less scholarships is a disadvantage? Once the playing field was made even, the Real GSU lost by a combined 10 points in their first outings with 85 scholarships. Again, I appreciate GT rescheduling the Real GSU unlike UGAg (I bet you’re a UGAg fan before a GAy St fan). Do you understand that when a head coach does not prep their team for a game that the team is unprepared? Big concepts here. Do you have any facts or just opinions? Richt was on the hot seat at the start of that season and the season before that…try to keep up. The fact that you recognize KSU and Mercer says a lot about where you view GAy St. Pee-Wee trophies…you’re talking about Division 1 National Championships. Do you understand that prior to the College Football Playoff, the FCS Playoff was the highest form of a college football playoff in existence? Oh but computers picking two teams worked out every time. The Real GSU should go back to FCS? You mean the Real GSU with the 18-7 FBS record (.720)? How about GAy St with the 7-30 FBS record (.189). This is too easy man, c’mon. (A) Why would GAy St field a football team and (B) why would ANYONE be a fan???? LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL!!!

        The “REAL” GSU just beat the GaSo clown big talkers AGAIN! GAyTAy!!!
        So GaSo now has a LOSING record against GSU along with
        never beating UGA and GT! So just go STFU !!!!!!!!!!

      what about the Brigham Young-Utah State game or the Notre Dame-Navy game?

      • David
        August 9, 2016 at 10:19 pm

        Neither BYU nor USU are a Power 5. And Notre Dame and Navy aren’t in the same state.

      • Adam
        August 10, 2016 at 11:47 am

        Matt probably meant to say the BYU-Utah game. Utah is a P5, but BYU is not. The summary would read something like this:

        Utah-Brigham Young

        When: Saturday, Sept. 10, 5:30pm MT
        Where: Rice-Eccles Stadium, Salt Lake City, UT
        All-Time Series Leader: Utah, 58-34-4 (62.5%)
        Last-Five: Utah, 5-0 (100%)

        Utah has dominated its little brother, BYU, over the last 13 meetings (10-3, 77%). And they will certainly do so again this fall.

      • Bill
        August 10, 2016 at 3:27 pm

        how would BYU qualify as a “Big” brother?

      • C
        August 11, 2016 at 12:15 pm

        Bill, Utah would be the big brother

      • Mark S
        August 11, 2016 at 3:43 pm

        Someone asked that on Twitter, FBSchedules replied “BYU generally considered P5 so not included.”

      • Matt
        August 11, 2016 at 4:54 pm

        BYU fits the P5 requirement for scheduling for most if not all conferences. The SEC looks at BYU as a P5…last time I checked the SEC is the premier program in College Football.

    4. Bill
      August 10, 2016 at 3:32 pm

      good article ….but i would say Georgia Southern has a much better chance of beating Georgia Tech than many of the games you have ranked as more likely. I don’t think very many people would be surprised is Georgia Southern wins that game.

    5. KF Baxter
      August 11, 2016 at 3:25 pm

      Utah had to be invited to a conference to be considered P5. BYU did it on their own.

      • Wade
        August 12, 2016 at 7:54 am

        BYU is considered by some to be a P5 “for scheduling purposes.” But we’re not actually a P5, since we don’t belong to a P5 conference. That’s why it’s so important for us to get into the Big XII…the fate and viability of our football program rests on it. If we don’t get in and become an actual P5, our future looks no better than that of New Mexico State.

      • Buzz Waldron
        September 8, 2016 at 1:49 pm

        By that thinking, Toledo would also be considered a Power 5 Power Team, since it can beat 1/2 or more of teams from Power 5 Conferences…

      I think ECU is NC State’s big brother when it comes to football.

      August 22, 2016 at 3:39 pm

      What about Penn State vs Pitt this year?

    9. Craig
      August 23, 2016 at 1:11 am

      I don’t think many Ohio State fans see any MAC schools as “little brother.” The only school that would make sense to have that designation would be U of Cincinnati.

    10. Charles Dean
      November 10, 2016 at 11:25 am

      Where is Alabama-Auburn? Auburn is the ultimate “Little Brother” who lives to beat Big Brother, Alabama. Alabama lives to win national championships; Auburn lives to beat Alabama.

      • Day
        November 21, 2016 at 8:27 am

        When they say little brother, I think they actually mean LITTLE BROTHER! Auburn is not a little brother to Bama, same conference, same league, Auburn has done their fair share of butt whooping on Bama in the past. If that was the case then the article would have Michigan vs Michigan St.

    11. Shelly

      FSU is also UF’s big brother.

      No more FCS, but why no OOC P5’s in ’19, ’20, ’21, or ’22? Wasn’t the B1G tooting its horn so much about having all these OOC P5’s? Cred to Indiana for picking up Louisville in the next decade… but WFU and UVa makes for a fairly lame schedule. They beat Mizzou, after all, so they should be playing Kentucky not Directional Kentucky.

      September 11, 2015 at 1:40 pm

      Indiana is a program that has gone nowhere for the past 45 years and will most likely go nowhere for the next 45 years. October 15th will see the start of men’s basketball practice at which point Indiana fans if they have not done so already will shift their focus from football to basketball

    3. Evan
      September 11, 2015 at 5:54 pm

      I’d say they have a balanced OOC schedule. They have 1 big name school, 1 decent G5 team, and a cupcake for each of the next 6 or so seasons.

    4. Mitch
      September 11, 2015 at 6:29 pm

      sorry. I don’t see a game here that I would need to plan my wedding around. what a lame comment. however– I am a Mizzou guy and that loss still looks horrible as does playing road games last year at Toledo, this year at Arkansas State and future dates at Wyoming and Middle Tennessee State (a DIRECTIONAL school). A “SEC” team doesn’t have to agree to those . . .

      • David
        September 12, 2015 at 7:34 pm

        Mizzou will be glad to see Toledo knocking off Arkansas. And playing in the heart of Tennessee is a smart move for recruiting. Mizzou’s strong academics and their mastery of the SEC East…. plenty of cred.

    5. Ryan
      September 18, 2015 at 12:11 pm

      Maybe the folks at Indiana and the Big Ten expect Cincy and UConn to be in Power 5 Conferences by the time those games are played.

    6. Nick
      December 6, 2015 at 9:35 am

      For all those saying that IU doesn’t play a power 5 team in those years, the BIG came out with a list of about 10 teams in which you could play instead of a P5 team. This list includes teams like Notre Dame and BYU. Cincinnati and UCONN were included so IU is meeting the BIG’s standards

    7. Michael
      February 22, 2016 at 9:27 am

      Nick (above from Dec. 6th, 2015) is correct about IUFB scheduling and here is the article from last year that came out 11 days after this article explaining it.

    1. Shep
      September 8, 2015 at 3:00 pm

      Why in the hell would Indiana schedule them for two years, let alone two successive years? One would assume it would be to get the win but you never know with IU. Schedule more MAC schools even if they beat you – Toledo and WMU would be interesting, high-scoring matchups.

    2. Dirk

      If Idaho and New Mexico State have to leave the Sun Belt Conference, instead of going Independent, they should join the WAC, and the WAC should bring in 12 FCS Schools to the FBS Level such as North Dakota State, Montana, Montana State, South Dakota State, Missouri State, Illinois State, Sacramento State, UC Davis, Portland State, Eastern Washington, Southern Illinois and Youngstown State. With East-west Divisions, a Championship game, and an ESPN/FOX Sports TV Deal? ~

      • David
        September 8, 2015 at 4:40 pm

        Most of those schools have soundly rejected moving up to FBS. More likely…. the XII gets off the pot and brings in schools from the MW such as Colorado State and New Mexico, adds BYU football only, and Cincinnati. That would have the MW accept NMSU and Idaho as replacements for teams lost to stay at 12.

    3. Dave
      September 9, 2015 at 11:59 am

      There is no more WAC for football. Idaho will drop to FCS soon.

      This is a terrible move by SJSU. Boring games against a awful program. No one is going to want to spend money to see this godawful team.

      August 21, 2015 at 12:00 pm

      This is actually not a bad idea, play a neutral site game then off to both home stadiums. That way there is a unbiased game in a large city stadium then home n home series.

      • schoup
        August 22, 2015 at 11:39 am

        Neutral site games are bad for fans in general. it’s just a money scheme. Even worse idea b/c Indiana biggest home croud last year was 44K with a capacity of 53K. People don’t really come to campus games and now your going to make them travel an hr and pay also pay for a single game ticket. UL fans aren’t going to be that excited to play Indiana…Mich St, Michigan, Pen State, Ohio st who yes..not Indiana a doormat of the b10

      • Day
        August 22, 2015 at 1:07 pm

        It’s not a money scheme, its good for business, if it was so bad for fans then why do they show up to the games? You also don’t know how these two teams will look in 8, 9 or 10 years. You complain about teams need more home n home series & these two teams made that happen & you’re are still complaining.

      • sxhoup
        August 22, 2015 at 1:19 pm

        Indiana has sucked for decades, they will continue to be bottom dweller in the B10. Btw, it is stupid tp schedule a neutral game when you can’t even get your fans to fill a tiny 53K stadium.

      • Day
        August 22, 2015 at 1:41 pm

        Well the city of Indianapolis didn’t think it was stupid & is welcoming both teams with open arms.

      • David

        Because the basketball game deal is what sealed the football game deal. Who wants to watch Purdue basketball?

      August 21, 2015 at 2:38 pm

      Should make for a more interesting basketball matchup, but a pretty cool idea. I’d like to see more schools do multiple sports deals.

      August 22, 2015 at 11:45 am

      Indiana should be working on meeting the b10 requirements for OOC, They have to change games in 2019 and 2020 as their back to nack years of Western KY, Ball State and UConn does not meet the P5 requirement. Get on the ball Indiana AD and stop scheduling nonsense neutral games for a cellar team in the B10. You need to drop 1 of those series and schedule a P5.

    1. Dave
      April 30, 2015 at 1:39 pm

      Indian continues to schedule non league opponents that are a carbon copy of themselves-mediocre to putrid. At least the games should be competitive. Hoosier fans need only wait until October 15th when basketball practice starts and the focus of attention shifts to the sport that in which they are more competitive.

    2. David
      May 3, 2015 at 10:32 pm

      WKU will be glad to have all these p5 (a little P on purpose!) wins over Indiana for this series.
