      I really wish/hope UAB could get their own stadium. Legion Field is such an ash tray.

      It will be interesting to see Terry Bowden back in Alabama

    Clemson adds Akron to 2020 Football Schedule

      Just another game to light up the score board as well as get some younger backups some much deserved playing time. Sure am glad we are playing South Carolina and Notre Dame that year. I would much rather be playing a Pac12, Big12 or Big10 team, hopefully that will come in the near future.

        I like how Clemson schedules their non-conference games. They have both Auburn and USC in’16&’17 and then USC and Texas A&M in ’18 and ’19. And they just finished up a series with Georgia. There are very few P5 schools that schedule two top P5 teams almost every year. Until it is required that all conferences play nine conference games and two P5 schools in non conference, both fans and the playoff committee really have no subjective resume to which to judge who are really the best teams.

        I would rather see a 10-2 that has run a gauntlet of a schedule, than a 11-1 or 12-0 squad with two difficult games and 10 cupcakes in the playoff.

      Hmm, that could be an interesting game if a Bowden is still coaching Akron in 2020!

        Gus, Clemson plays an in state FCS team every year and has stated they will continue to do so to help support those teams. BTW FCS teams are division 1, but they only have 63 scholarships compared to 85 for FBS teams,

      Bowden will still be at Akron in 2020, and the Zips will be a force to be reconed with.

      All some people care about is a label. I personally wouldn’t care if we were playing App St. Prolly no different in competition and level of play but a different label. Bowden isnt nor never was Dabo. I do respect Bowden though, Dabo is who he is partly because of Tommy. Sure am glad Dabo believes Clemson is a final destination job, he’s the best young coach in the business.

        Agreed, PR. I would surmise that if many P5 schools had scheduled East Carolina, UCF and Marshall back to back to back as all three of their non-conference games last year there would be a few slashes in the L column.

      We also play Georgia Southern in 2018 which can be a very difficult game. I would love to see us play three tough OOC games yearly. Not too sure I’m happy about playing two good triple option teams in the same year, but hopefully by then we will be in the hunt for a national title and with the lack of respect the ACC gets as a whole we will need an even tougher OOC Schedule to get into the playoff. Go Tigers Baby.

      The MAC finally figured out not to have teams travel to UMass on a short week. Of course, this is UMass’s last year in the MAC, so it’s too little too late.

    2015 MAC Football Opponents

      All Power5 programs have completed their 2015 schedules (although BC is awaiting to hear if NM St cancels their game).

      Numerous Group of Five programs are scrapping to fill their 2015 schedules.

      Ball St and Western Mich both need OOC games. One of these programs could end up playing South Alabama (after their game with UAB was cancelled). All have 9/19 open.

      W Mich could schedule an FCS program, but not many FCS programs with dates open, and it will cost a bunch to attract a home game. If UCF does not opt to play an FCS program, could hook up with W Mich (both with 9/19 open).

      With 2 or 3 games yet to schedule San Diego State needs to get on the ball. Maybe the Aztecs are hoping NM St will cancel the 9/19 UTEP game, and then SD St could schedule the Miners?

      Geo St and FIU could hook up (both have 9/12 and 9/26 open).

      Then SMU, Louis Tech, ULL and Texas St each still need one game.

      Some FCS programs not yet matched up with a FBS opponent: Montana St, Arkansas-Pine Bluff, Alabama St, Prairie View A&M, Texas Southern, South Carolina St

      (unknown if they are actually looking for FBS opponents as their schedules have not been publicly announced).

      Air Force needs a game. Possibility AF could hook up with Montana St?

      And San Diego St, Air Force, Fresno St and San Jose St can opt to schedule an additional game via their ‘Hawaii exemptions’.

      Sidenote: The Tarheels have scheduled games against two FCS opponents (NC A&T and Delaware). Why?

      WMU plays Georgia Southern, Michigan St and Ohio State in 2015. I assure u that their 4th non-conf game will be against an FCS school. Maybe a junior college
