      SDSU gets a 2-for-2 with ASU and Fresno State gets a 3-0 with USC? Ha.

      Arizona State cancels on LSU.

      Gee… Wonder why?

        Looking back at articles reporting schedule changes, I saw this one about the LSU home and home being pushed back again. Not where Joe gets his information but there is ample evidence the LSU, not ASU, asked for the later years.

      I love that the photo attached to the post shows Rice getting beat 58 to 0. Might be a similar score when they play the Pokes

      Meh. Not a bad match up. On Oklahoma State’s side of things this is probably their best opponent recently outside of the FSU neutral site game. I’d still like to see them mix in a few slightly bigger name schools (they now have a game per year against Pitt, Boise State, and Oregon State as their biggest opponents over the period from 2016-2021), but at least they’re looking to put at least one power-5 caliber school (I’m giving them the benefit of the doubt on Boise State) a year with the anomaly of 2015.

      Over/under on how many times the announcers will irritate Sooner and Duck fans by calling them “Oklahoma” and “Oregon” since they won’t be able to call them “OSU”…?

        They had Clemson scheduled but Clemson backed out when the ACC decided to play 9 conference games but then went back to 8. Heard they had reopened talks but this was 2 years ago and still no announcement.

      • David
        June 27, 2015 at 9:46 pm

        How hard would it be for the announcers to say “Oak State” and “Oar State”?

    2. JC16
      June 25, 2015 at 10:55 pm

      They can just call them by their mascot and it’ll be fine. “The beavers vs the cowboys…beavers are on the cowboys 37, 2nd and 7..” besides most people think Ohio state when someone says OSU.

      • Jeff
        June 25, 2015 at 10:58 pm

        Depends on the part of the country and the context. It’s not unusual in Texas, for example, to call Oklahoma State “OSU” since they come up more.

        But announcers do that kind of thing already from time to time, amidst the action of a game. I’ve heard them call Texas A&M “Texas” which makes me cringe as a Longhorn fan. I’ve heard Michigan State called Michigan when the context is against someone completely unrelated and out of conference. I’ve heard Ohio State referred to as Ohio, which one would assume doesn’t lead to a lot of confusion in most cases.

        Ah poor university of Ohio, no love for the Bobcats. I see your point though, that’s just announcers being lazy in my opinion.

        Oregon State will be on a three year run of playing the other OSUs from 2018-2020 (Columbus, Corvallis, Stillwater, respectively, pending further conference realignment-Lord help us).

        An interesting(OK, not that interesting) bit of history is that tOSU nearly also chose orange and black as its official colors:

      “With the rigors of the nine-game Pac-12 Conference schedule, It’s very important to have a balance in the non-conference portion,” Oregon State Director of Athletics Bob De Carolis said

      Slow down there Bob. Oregon State’s recent record against FCS schools hardly guarantees OSU will beat Idaho St, Portand or S. Utah.

      • Dave
        June 26, 2015 at 8:35 pm

        The slow starts were all on Coach Mike Riley. His teams couldn’t beat 2 eggs in a mixmaster to start the season, but were decent after the first couple of games.

        Lmao, at Greg. Way to go Beavs

        Yep, seemed it was that way every year he coached, at least after he replaced his replacement. They’d loose to FCS schools, then go on to play in, and sometimes win, a decent bowl. If he ever had them ready at the start of the season he could have gotten his team a BCS bowl selection or two.

      So, in an alternate universe, this is a regular PAC-16 matchup! :)

      Too bad the conference schedules make it too difficult, but October 31, 2019 is a Thursday. This would be a perfect matchup for a Halloween night football game.

    2015 Big 12 Football Schedule Announced

    By Kevin Kelley -

      November 19, 2014 at 3:29 pm

      In 2015 59 of the 63 teams which make up the P5 teams will have one bye week. And then there is Big 12 scheduling. WVU, KSU, Texas and Baylor will be the only teams in all of the P5 teams to have two bye weeks.

      Smooth move Big 12. Even within the conference WVU, KSU, Texas and Baylor have an advantage over the other six teams. Add in KSU and Baylor have no P5 OOC games and this scheduling looks even worse.

      • Travis B
        November 19, 2014 at 4:36 pm

        Yep and the extra bye week is a definite advantage.

        The OOC is pretty much garbage. OU, TEX, and WVU are the only B12 teams that consistently play challenging OOC schedules. (I know others do sometimes but they do every year)

      • Mason
        November 20, 2014 at 10:00 am

        Because the Big12 doesn’t have a championship game, they can schedule games on the weekend when the other conferences hold their conference game, thus the extra bye week.

      • Kevin
        July 21, 2015 at 5:01 pm

        In regards to these teams having an advantage because they are the only teams with two byes. WVU, KSU, Texas and Baylor. I haven’t looked at the rest of the P5 schedules but these 4 teams play on a Thursday and have the Saturday before off as you cant play Saturday, Thursday, Saturday. WVU has a bye in week three which was a result of joining the Big12 and had to cancel a game that week and then plays at Baylor, gets the next week off and then goes at TCU on Thursday night and since they travel more than any other team in all of college football for conference games (maybe besides Hawaii) this was also a factor for fairness.

    2. Kyle
      November 19, 2014 at 4:37 pm

      They need to all play the first weekend in December. This can really hurt them and waste a bye week.

      The OOC schedules for Baylor, Oklahoma St and Kansas St are a disgrace. That’s why these programs will never earn a playoff berth. Those weak schedules weaken the overall XII strength of schedule, negative impacting the XII programs who dare to schedule stronger opponents. Texas, Oklahoma, West Virginia and TCU should be pressing their fellow brethren to get their ship into shape.

      Also without a conference championship, the XII will forever remain behind the Pac-12 which plays 9-game schedule AND a conference championship. The B1G will be going to a 9-game conference schedule in 2016.

      The XII needs to be true to their name and get back to 12. But if not suffer the consequences.

    4. Ricky W
      November 19, 2014 at 7:46 pm

      No XII championship game is the rason for the bye.

      But looking at the disgraceful OOC schedules for Baylor, Oklahoma St and Kansas St. those three programs effectively have more then two byes. And each are playing for nothing more than a bowl game. Potential recruits be aware!

    5. Mason
      November 20, 2014 at 12:48 pm

      Most other P5 schools should look at Texas’ OCC schedules and do their best to emulate them. 2 P5 OCC games a year AND a nine game conference slate. Very impressive.

      • Tully
        November 22, 2014 at 10:13 pm

        This will be the first year in a very long time that Texas will play two OOC teams that are in P5 (or BCS conferences). Texas felt pressure to change how they scheduled in 2009 when they had four OOC games and none were with any teams from a BCS conference.

        In fact the Texas 2009 team and the OU 2000 teams are the only teams which made an appearance in a BCSNCG while going 0-0 in OOC games with BCS teams. Even the SEC teams which made the BCSNCG never did that.

        So let’s hold off praising Texas for doing what other teams have been doing for years.

    6. Travis B
      November 20, 2014 at 6:06 pm

      Yes we know that no CCG is the reason for the bye. It shouldn’t be though. If they don’t want a CCG, they shouldn’t be able to schedule games on CCG (postseason) weekend.

      Other conferences have to fit their 12 game regular season schedule in a 13 or 14 week period (depending on the season) and the B12 has to fit their 12 game regular season schedule in a 14 or 15 week period (cause of no CCG)

      I think this is an unfair advantage that shouldn’t be allowed. CCG weekend should be allowed for CCG’s only and teams that are playing an extra 13th, non-regular season game.

    7. Ricky W
      November 20, 2014 at 7:02 pm

      Agree with Travis.

      Should not boast about Texas schedule as they play no CCG, and get an extra bye week to rest, recover and prepare, unlike programs from other P5 conference programs.

      The XII cannot fulfill its bowl commitments this season, with OK St, Texas Tech, Kansas
      and Iowa St not playing in a bowl. And Baylor’s lightweight OOC schedule should keep them out of a major bowl.

      If the XII is not motivated to bring in two more programs, maybe its time for the XII to split up, with half going to the four other P5 conferences and and the other half to G5 conferences. And if Texas doesn’t want to share TV revenue then they can go independent, like Notre Dame.

    8. Tully
      November 23, 2014 at 5:32 pm

      A couple of examples of the absurdity of the Big 12 schedule.
      Texas Tech will play 11 games with out a bye week. After the bye week Texas Tech will play their last game of the season in week 13.
      Kansas will have a bye week in week 3, then play 10 consecutive weeks, ending their season in week 13.
      Baylor will have bye weeks in week 3 and again on week 9, ending their season on week 14
      KSU will have bye weeks4 and again on week 9, ending their season on week 14.
      Well it is funny to see Oklahoma get screwed too. One bye week on week 4 and then play nine consecutive weeks and finish their season week 13.

      I think the two bye weeks for Baylor and KSU are even more absurd as they are two of three Big 12 teams not playing any OOC games with P5 teams.

      The Big 12, where, they all play with each other, it is just some Big 12 teams a more equal than others.

      I am hoping that the Big 12 can get some more good college football teams in like the Big 10 did. I would enjoy seeing the playoff games again with the Big 12 name on it. Does anyone have a team or two that would like to join the Big 12. Maybe a team from California or another Texas team.
