      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!!!

      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.

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

      What about Penn State vs Pitt this year?

      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.

      SDSU has some solid home-and-homes lined up – granted the majority of them are from Cali schools but still impressive.

      So appears after this season Utah won’t be playing an OOC game versus a P5 opponent until 2023. BYU as Utah’s ‘major’ OOC opponent every season will not be viewed kindly with CFP committee. The Utes must improve their OOC scheduling unless they want to become irrelevant, once again.

        October 22, 2015 at 1:20 pm

        “BYU as Utah’s ‘major’ OOC opponent every season will not be viewed kindly with CFP committee.”

        Uh, yes it will be. BYU has a better football program than half of the Power Five schools.

    3. @dbrunstheworld
      October 22, 2015 at 1:02 pm

      How is Utah’s schedule strength with CFP committee already doomed? I thought that the days of 2018 polls based on 2015 recruiting rankings was done and the CFP committee would be objective.

      I am optimistic there can be objectivity. I also think BYU, Northern Illinois and several TBD opponents have a chance to be solid in any given season.

      • Shep
        October 22, 2015 at 4:50 pm

        NIU could be tricky, the MAC is very cyclical. If Fleck stays WMU will be near the top, CMU is playing very strong right now but their QB only has 1 more season, Toledo is seemingly always solid, and BGSU appears to be making their cyclical push.

    4. Slip
      October 22, 2015 at 3:41 pm

      Most upper division P5 programs play at least one OOC game against another upper division P5 program.

      For example, in the Pac-12 Stanford, UCLA, USC, Oregon, Arizona State consistently try to play at least one top P5 program.

      BYU might be better than some of the lower division P5 programs but they certainly are not upper division.

      If Utah wants to be considered an upper division team, they must schedule better. Otherwise they can join with Arizona and WSU with the worst scheduling. WSU has an excuse, whereas Utah does not.

      • Phil
        October 25, 2015 at 1:07 pm

        Pac12 plays a 9 game conference schedule so that is 9 P5 programs right there. BYU is recognized as a P5 equivalent by the conferences. So Utah’s schedule will be better than TCU, Baylor and most SEC schedules. This is several years out and who knows what the playoff will look like by then.

      Cincinnati to the Big 12. They are a big fish in a small pond. It will be nice for once to see Cincinnati play in prime time. I hope the Big 12 stop playing games and add them.

      So Georgia will be playing @GT and @UCLA in 2015. It doesn’t make sense.

      But Georgia cancelling the home-and-home series with Oregon didn’t make sense either.

    6. Joe
      June 18, 2015 at 12:21 am

      Crabbes , It makes perfect sense….. Georgia had no shot in hell at beating Oregon either game.That;s whay it was cancelled. Ucla will punch them in the throat both games… Just like they did Bama in 1999 and 2000 home and away….

      In the old days, this would have meant a days-long train journey for the DAWGS.
      UCLA would have played ag’in’ a half asleep Georgia team (and, possibly…only possibly) won the contest, because of it.
      It doesn’t make sense to go cross-country, to play a non-bowl game, though.

      December 23, 2015 at 11:00 pm

      I remember the last time UCLA came to Athens and we ran them out of the stadium. Took them over 30 years to even think about coming back. Welcome back left coasters and enjoy your beat down in Athens

      Gotta love the passion. Easy to hate the SEC. Good problem to have. Nobody hates the PAC10. Only time to hate the PAC10 is when they refuse to play your homecoming.
