    2017 Pac-12 Football Schedule announced

      I thought that one of the Pac12 vs MW games would be moved to Week 13 to avoid someone having to play 12 straight games. USC has to play 12 straight games as a result.

      • USC

        That’s the price USC and Stanford are going to pay for their special exemption to play Notre Dame on the last week of the season. In the years they aren’t playing Notre Dame, they are going to risk getting stuck with a bye in week 13. They are going to have the same issue in 2018-2019. They’ve fixed it for 2020-2023 by each scheduling BYU when they aren’t playing Norte Dame.

        Issue won’t recur before 2026. BYU is playing Utah to close 2018 and 2019, 2024 and 2025 are fifteen week seasons.

      Typical Pac12 schedule makers–putting a high profile game like Stanford vs Washington on a Friday.
      Although, this was probably ESPN’s decision, the P12 shouldn’t have let that happen.

      To call Washington @ Rutgers a prominent OOC game is an insult to any thinking person. Rutgers is worse than most teams and was only added to the Big 10 for the 300,000 + Big Ten alumni who live in the New York metro area. Rutgers has been a poor stepchild for nearly 120 years except for a decent seasons in the mid 2000’s. Rutgers now serves as a punching bag for the Big 10 powers-like 78-0, 58-0, 49-0, etc.

      With crappy Rutgers, 1-11 Fresno state and Montana-Washington, once again has the weakest OOC schedule in the country for the 2nd straight year.

        I pick one from each team. The other choices were Montana and Fresno State.

        Montana is probably the least weak of the 3. Your choice was like going into a restaurant where nothing on the menu was appealing-therefore, choose the least repugnant.

        At least for one season, in 2018 they will have Auburn and BYU besides North Dakota.

        As we often see on this excellent website, OOC Games are usually scheduled 5-10 years out. That is when Rutgers was having their “decent seasons”. Also around the same time that B1G & PAC had scheduling agreement, which this game would have fulfilled.

        Also not that long ago, Fresno was battling Boise for conference championships most years.

        Sometimes advance scheduling works, sometimes not. Bet Tennessee wishes they had Oregon on schedule in 2016 instead of 2010 & 2013.

        To be perfectly honest the Rutgers OOC schedule with Washington was booked in March 2014 not 5-10 years out but 2 years out. UCLA got out of a 2016-2017 series with Rutgers to hook up with Texas A & M. You can easily look this up. Why Washington had no marquee game scheduled for 2016-2017 as late as March 2014 is a mystery. It is true that Wisconsin bailed out on Washington for 2018-2021 and subsequently BYU came in for 2018-2019 and Michigan was added for 2020-2021. Rutgers has a history of poor performances and only one top 20 finish in its history. If you schedule a team like Rutgers the odds are that they will be crappy-just like the Illinois series that UW had for 2013-2014. If you schedule a Michigan, Ohio State, Penn State, Notre Dame well in advance the odds are that they will be decent to good and if not at least they are a name that players and fans can get excited about. I was at thr Rutgers game on September 3rd last year. It was a bore and there were more than 20,000 empty seats-they have no appeal. The same in 2014 with Illinois- a team that is decent every 5-10 years but usually a dead beat. There also 15,00-20,00 empty seats for that one.

      Am I reading correctly? Stanford has 3 straight Road Games to start the season! Who did David Shaw piss off in PAC schedule maker’s office?

        Actually this is a gift. Stanford is on the quarter system, so they don’t start classes until after week 3 anyways. The last few seasons they had big home games in late August/early September, and attendance was low. Meanwhile, USC is on the semester system, so their home game against Stanford will have students.

      I wonder Arizona have to go to Boulder & Fort Collins in 2027 that would be interesting

        It’s probably less than a 2 hour plane flight from Tucson to Denver. But yeah, maybe in five years time they will swap the venues for this series.

      Here are ALL the teams playing in bowls at or close to home, not just the ones playing in their home stadiums.

      New Mexico
      Central Florida
      Louisiana-Lafayette VS. Southern Mississippi (it’s a toss-up)
      North Texas
      Miami (Florida)
      Texas A&M
      Southern California

        That USC team gets to play close to home again, may be that “special Trojan fan” can stop complaining about SEC teams playing in bowls close to home. I luv it when they compare the miles to the stadium from both campuses. Should be an easy win for the Trojans then, I guess. Like last year…….ohh wait.

      Number of Years since Last Conference Title

      You forgot Wisconsin, which last won the B1G in 2012.

      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
