      Hard to complain on this, even if you’re against the weak methods of scheduling the SEC traditional performs. Neutral site game against Louisville, followed by three home games against; Arkansas State, UL-La and The Citadel.

        Mind you the SEC is not the only conference who has scheduled these teams for home games. As early as last year USC was hosting Arkansas St at home & won 55-6, the whole conference of the ACC has played The Citadel plus a couple have lost to them as well, very tough FCS school. As for La. Lafayette, you got me on that one, SEC luvs playing the Rajun Cajuns but it is equivalent to the BIG playing a team like Ohio from the MAC. Weak methods fall on all conferences you see, Louisville can speak for themselves.

      The Tide hosting two SunBelt programs and a FCS program. And a neutral site game vs Louisville. For a power program not an OOC schedule to brag about. Apparently Tide fans enjoy watching such home games.

      Will be interesting to see which P5 programs Auburn, Arkansas and Vandy are able to add to their 2018 OOC schedules. Not any other P5 programs which need to add a P5 to their OCC schedule. Notre Dame could add a road game, so maybe an Auburn-ND game in Hotlanta? And BYU needs to add two home games, so Vand@BYU is plausible.

      Arkansas could set up a 2018-19 series with Michigan (joke). The Razorbacks must feel like Oregon, when Texas A&M cancelled the series with the Ducks, and thus the Ducks ended up with scheduling a neutral site game with Auburn and hosting San Jose St. Too bad Oregon won’t cancel that neutral site game and instead go with a home-and-home with the Razorbacks.

      Home-and-home on campus games helped define college football.

      Western Carolina stays pissed that ASU won’t schedule them as the token FCS. ASU 59 WCU 18 TIE 1.

        I doubt it is App not willing but WCU needing more money to keep there program afloat than App is willing and can afford to pay.

      Savannah State is the worst FCS team playing……seen better high school teams

        Sometimes you get what you can get. Akron cancelled on us for their own needs of needing another home game. A shame we have to drop to the level of Savannah State but there are only so many teams that had an open date that weekend. If App was SEC rich we could have bought out another game that was more to App’s liking and made another school scramble, but App is not SEC rich. Though you point about how bad Savannah State is, is spot on.

      Why was the amount of the Elon contract listed and SSU contract not listed. Does it mean that the contract not done, yet confirmed that there will be a contract. Bad reporting.

      • Kevin Kelley

        The Savannah State game was reported by the Winston-Salem Journal. They didn’t specify a dollar amount.

        The Elon game was reported by us after we obtained the contract. App State did not send us a contract for the Savannah State game, so it’s obviously not finalized or signed yet.

      No 2020 payday game with a P5 program for FAU? Generally all the G5 programs are able to schedule at least one payday game per season. And many are able to schedule two. FAU scheduling road games at AF and Cen Mich the same season does not compute. Likely one of those two games will be pushed back from 2020, and replaced with a game at a P5 opponent.

      Oops…I meant 2021.

      Maybe the 2021 FAU at Air Force game gets pushed back? Does AF have an option for an extra game in 2021 due to Hawaii exception?

      BTW, I missed observing the TCU-Jackson St 2017 game announcement on this site. But there was an announce of the Southern Miss-Jackson St 2017 game.

        You can’t tell me that you don’t stay up nights thinking about Florida Atlantic’s future scheduling. The fact this wasn’t raised at even one of the presidential debates this year, or even the vice-presidential debate, proves just how far we’ve fallen as a nation.

    Minnesota to host Georgia Southern in 2019

      Minnesota Non Conference schedule is complete for 2019. Aren’t Gophers required to schedule a power 5 non conference team in Big ten? Can we expect them to move of buyout a game?

      • Kevin Kelley
        October 19, 2016 at 3:31 pm

        Who knows, their official release says their schedule is “complete.” Maybe the B1G will take the game at Fresno State as an exception. They are also not supposed to play FCS teams, but South Dakota State was already scheduled.

      October 19, 2016 at 3:39 pm

      Thank you Kevin. We will see I guess. I know we also don’t have a Power 5 team scheduled in 2018. All 3 of those games were booked before the schedule requirements.

      October 19, 2016 at 5:00 pm

      Why do teams continue to schedule Georgia Southern? That is a team that P5 teams should never schedule. You’re asking for a loss if not at least cracked knees on Sunday.

      October 20, 2016 at 3:03 am

      The following B1G programs do not have an OOC game scheduled against a P5 program in 2019.
      Minnesota @Fresno St
      Wisconsin @USF
      Indiana Conn
      Illinois @Conn

      Thank you Cory. I know the Big Ten counts UConn and Cincinnati as a P5 even though they are not. Kind of silly. I have no clue about Wisconsin. It looks as though they filled their schedule after the mandate just like the Gophers did.. Maybe is more of something the B1G wants teams to do but not a requirement? I don’t know…

      Star Tribune got the answer:

      As far as the scheduling of Fresno State – this is from Joe C in the Strib:

      The Big Ten has mandated that members schedule one Power Five nonconference foe per season. Oregon State checks that box for the Gophers in 2017. And the Big Ten has made an exception for independents such as BYU and Notre Dame and certain members of the American Athletic Conference and Mountain West, including Fresno State.

      “Otherwise we wouldn’t have done that,” Claeys said. “[The Big Ten] has to approve it.”

      So, that explains why Fresno State is on the schedule instead of a “Power 5” team.
