The BYU game will be the second against an FBS opponent for Portland State. The Vikings are also schedule to play at Oregon State on September 2nd.
This schedule came together great. A FCS game to open followed by LSU, Utah, and Wisconsin. Then a bye week before finishing off their season with 9 games. The home slate should also garner great interest for attendance with Utah, Wisconsin, and Boise State on the slate.
It was a good idea to put a warm up game before LSU–just to get the offense in sync. Go Cougars.
Question…..After checking BYU’s sched is there any reason why independent teams don’t schedule gms w each other during champ week? For ex. BYU vs UMASS during champ wk would give teams an xtra bye wk.
Weather combined with lack of alternative game opportunities.
But the BYU-UMass contract has a clause to move the 2017 to December 2 had either gotten a great opportunity for November 18.
If UConn was move to the Big East Olympic/Indy football, I would not be surprised to see in most years UMass-UConn Thanksgiving weekend while BYU plays USC/Stanford and BYU-UMass and BYU-UConn pre-Thanksgiving Championship weekend.

Number of Years since Last Conference Title
You forgot Wisconsin, which last won the B1G in 2012.
I would not call 4 years a “drought”. I would not call 8 years a drought….
Going to have to agree with you, I’d say 15+ years on the list is where it should start.
15 years to last win a conference title in the SEc would include everyone save for ‘Bama, Auburn, LSU, Florida or Georgia. (Well, there is Mizzou, But they come from the hack Big 12 and as we all have been told ad nauseam Couch Carolina, Vandy, and Ole Miss would dominate all other leagues). Two bad they have been to the SEC title as many times as Florida and Georgia have since they left the Big 12. Tennessee???? Kentucky???
Mizzou with less than 6 years in the conference has been to the SEC title game in the last 15 years the same amount of times as South Carolina, Florida, Georgia and Tennessee.
Yeah, but everyone else in teh SEC would roll every other conference???? LOL
Best ‘xx Things’ column of the year, thanks Amy!
Glad San Jose State managed to eek out a win over the Mutts of Fresno State. That said,we new a new Head Coach.
This would warrant an update after 2016 bowl season. I’d like to see it as a running piece.
Too bad a few of these rivalry because of Conference realignment.
