KSU AD has been saying all along a home game would be scheduled with a G5, as KSU wanted seven home games. And the Wildcat AD reported just before the season they were very close to announcing the opponent. Then this announce.
So if Kansas State can change their scheduling attitude, what’s the deal with Baylor and Oklahoma State?
Kudos to Stanford for the consistently solid OOC schedules.
Completely bizarre move by Stanford. Stanford in it’s P5 scheduling seeks schools with academic pedigree thus playing Notre Dame annually, Other schools they have series with are Northwestern, TCU, Vandy, BYU,
You are completely right. Having played in two Rose Bowls, served as assistant football coach and senior associate ad at Stanford, ad at Northwestern, and ad (after their death penalty) at SMU, non-conference games are completely a tv opportunity.
This scheduling makes no sense.
Stanford wants to schedule two P5 OOC games when possible,
Maybe the Kansas State-Stanford deal was in the works for awhile but Stanford appeared to be scrambling to schedule an additional P5 for 2016.
Besides Miami-FL, KSU was the last P5 available for 2016. I was thinking a Stanford-BC series might happen in 2016, so was surprised when BC went with UConn (and no P5’s on BC OOC schedule).
With Vandy and KSU now on Stanford’s 2021 schedule, that could indicate ND did not want to schedule Stanford that season.
So with the KSU series, Stanford killed two birds with one stone. Only if every major P5 program could get two P5’s on their OOC schedule every season, the world would be a better place ;-)
Stanford 2016 schedule, includes ND as the only P5, with San Diego St and Rice also on the schedule. Stanford still looking for P5 for 2018.
Stanford’s 2024 OOC schedule is crazy with TCU, ND, and Vandy. I suspect that will change, with ND dropping off the schedule, and the annual ND-Stanford game to become only an occasional series.
I also expect ND to restart scheduling Michigan. May see ND rotate scheduling Stanford, Michigan, Michigan St, Purdue and Ohio St. Whereas the annual games with USC and Navy will stick.
And ND still has four games to schedule with BYU (now doubting that will happen)
ND has Stanford and USC road trips in alternating years so they are always in California once a year for recruits. I do not think they will take them off their schedule. As for Stanford, TCU, ND and Vandy is not that much different than Northwestern and ND this year. Maybe three P5 teams in a row is a bit much, but Vandy is traditionally weak, and who knows what TCU and ND will be like nine seasons from now.
Until the SEC plays a 9 game conference schedule, they’re irrelvant… the hardest part of playing Charleston Southern week 11 is convincing the media it’s not a joke when it so clearly is… I love people who say the Pac is down this year, when it’s easily the deepest conference in the country. Having 2 or 3 teams beat everyone else doesn’t make your conference strong, just top heavy. With a 9 game conference slate, that’s a guranteed loss for half the teams. wake up, people
Come on, Dickson. Be proactive.
Expect 2024 schedule to change. Pac 12 plays a 9 game con schedule and Stanford has 3 P5’s OOC in 2024 with TCU, Vandy, ND.
Also weird no ND game in 2021, as since ND plays USC at home means ND will not go to Cali for the first time in 25 years. ND always schedules stanford and usc alternating dates so they always get a game in Cali to recruit.
It’s possible that Stanford and ND don’t have agreed upon dates in those seasons so they didn’t list them.
Are you sure they’re playing on October 15, 2018? Just checked Notre Dame’s website and it’s not listed on the upcoming schedule, and that is a Monday, as well.
Really hard to believe Stanford and Vanderbilt have never played. Seems like Stanford, Duke, Northwestern, Vandy, Rice, Army, and Navy are constantly playing series with each other.
It’s nice to see that TCU is doing the right thing and beefing up their schedule. Baylor on the other hand, isn’t doing much of nothing.
Come on Tulane, schedule like you are a serious player.
