    Air Force to open 2017 season vs. VMI

      Well this is an FBS vs FCS game that makes sense. Air Force/Army/Navy should be playing The Citadel/VMI on a more frequent basis for the fan bases.

      The Citadel pretty much OWNED both Army and Navy for a short spell in the late 80s-early 90s. Navy actually played AT The Citadel, and lost, in 1988. I remember that game.

        Those days are looooong gone,while I think The Citadel and VMI could beat Army on any given year,beating AFA or Navy would have to be considered a upset.
        But glad to see this game happen….

      I will continue to have trouble sleeping until the entire FBS schedule is announced. Did the AD’s for Miami-FL, UNLV, Akron and Coastal Carolina forget they have another game to announce?

      There are 15+ FCS programs yet to have a FBS opponent on their 2017 schedule.

        And neither of those four FBS programs have FCS schools on their schedules yet, so they could still schedule an FCS team.

      Well expect lots of elementary and middle schools in the area to be in attendance for this one

      Great! Now let’s move the actual Cotton Bowl game back to Fair Park.

      I vote bringing Texas Jam and the Crossroads Guitar Fest back to the Cotton Bowl.

      This is cool. My friend went to the Army La Tech game a few years back when they did this during the fair. Will this game be added to the neutral site game thread?

      I’ve been waiting for a long time for this to happen!! I wouldn’t mind seeing Air Force in the Pac-12 and as an end-of-season game to Colorado. Can we make this an annual game?!?

      I love how Wellman bought five “buy games” and then made this statement:

      “The financial guarantees that non-conference opponents are receiving today for ‘buy games’ have doubled and tripled from just a few years ago. Therefore, it is more realistic to play a home- and- away series against quality opponents than to ‘buy’ one-time games.”

        Air Force and NIU are return trips from deals in the late 90’s early 00’s where those schools have pushed back as far as they could. Glad they’re finally confirmed.

      • @dbrunstheworld
        May 31, 2015 at 11:48 am

        Agreed on Air Force but I think the WFU-NIU 2001-2002 home and home was complete.

      It is a good thing they at least played in 1 Orange Bowl (2006), because the above scheduling is a joke. So the only team they are playing from a P5 conference in the next 11 years is Vanderbilt. This is why ACC Football is a joke.

      • Kevin Kelley

        Wake also has the following previously announced games from 2017 on:

        – Notre Dame in 2017, 2018, 2020, and 2023.
        – UNC in non-conference games in 2019 and 2021.
        – Ole Miss in 2024 and 2025.
        – Purdue in 2026 and 2027.

        Having a conference opponent as a non-conference game is a joke to me. I’m willing to bet both UNC and Wake Forest won’t be competing for a title when they play. The ACC is losing creditability for letting that happen.

      For a top academic institution like Wake this is a very good schedule … Its exactly who they should be playing … Nice job … And Coach Clawson is going to have the Deacs playing good in a couple of years … I see a bunch of bowl seasons here … Nice scheduling !!!

      Also, note the ACC is not counting Army as P5… unlike the lolSEC which counts them.

      Actually what “StrickDeac” wrote is wrong, at least as it concerns NIU. It was not NIU pushing the game back but rather a very scared Wake Forest team.

      Wake was hoping to “ride out the wave” on NIU’s “run” but it turns out that NIU isn’t going anywhere and is in fact only getting stronger the longer they wait. So they finally decided to “bite the bullet” and take their beating like men.

      KUDOS to you, Deacons.

      July 2, 2016 at 12:17 pm

      ACC Football is a joke I mean why in the he’ll would you schedule a team in your conference as a non conference game! And furthermore, not only Wake but all the ACC schools did a sorry job of scheduling in the future if they want to overpower the other P5 schools! The ACC should just stick to the sport they are good at and that’s Basketball not Football!
