Arizona OOC schedule lacks a P5 program for the next three seasons,and same last season (unless you consider BYU). Is this weak scheduling done on purpose to give RichRod extra time to build his program? Or is Arizona just having difficult bringing in P5 programs to Tucson? Or just a bad job by a previous Arizona AD? I see in future years the Wildcats have home-and-homes scheduled with Texas Tech, Miss St, Kansas St and Nebraska,
Home-and-homes with Houston and UTEP, and also Texas Tech in 2019-20. They need games in Texas for recruiting
So the game at VPI will be on a Friday? That is what day August 30th falls on in 2030.
Arizona OOC schedules:
2013 @UNLV / UTSA / No Arizona
2014 Nevada / UNLV / @UTSA
2015 @Nevada / UTSA / No Arizona
2016 @BYU (Glendale) / Hawaii / Grambling St
2017 Houston / @UTEP / TBA
2018 @Houston / BYU / UTEP
Recruiting aside, Arizona’s SOS is getting hurt by not scheduling a P5 program. But lucky for Arizona, Houston has became relevant once again. But will they be in 2017-18? Or maybe Arizona just doesn’t think they’ll ever be in position for the CFP and so SOS doesn’t matter?
And if B12 expands and takes Houston and BYU (which I’m betting on) Arizona’s future OOC schedule could be in for big changes. But expansion probably won;t happen until 2019 season, at its earliest.
Is an Alabama-Arizona at Arlington game still in the cards for 2020?
Again Arizona needs a P5 OOC opponent in 2017. So how about a Arizona-TCU neutral site game in Houston or at Arlington in 2017?
Or is UA going to settle for a FCS opponent and go without a P5 opponent in 2017 just like Miss St, WSU, Utah, Colorado, and Kansas?
Illinois is not playing a P5 OOC opponent 2017-20 and same with Wisconsin in 2017-19.
Conference bottomfeeders schedule like bottomfeeders. But does Wisconsin really want to become irrelevant again?
Nebraska has also wrapped up a second future series with Oklahoma…
