    I would suggest that one FCS team per year is a smart scheduling move for Mizzou, which is what they’ve done, along with playing 2 Group of 5 teams and 1 Power 5 team. They should schedule like the bottom half of the SEC, if the goal is 8-10 wins per year.

    Now, if you want to be in the top half and are ok with more variety in win totals but can recruit to a better schedule, you’d go with 2 Power 5 games per year. Better for your fans as well, natch.

    Any of those 44 happen to be the natural/long-time rival in a P5 league that they haven’t played in a decade or so? It’s not like there’s an obvious answer for them or anything…

      Nope, after 120 meetings, the Border War with Kansas was sacrificed for Missouri to join the SEC. They have scheduled 6 games in the future, though.

      Missouri-Kansas, Nebraska-OU, Texas-Texas A&M, etc, etc. Ain’t realignment great?

      Mizzou is going to Memphis next year as the return of a home and home. I personally applaud them for that, but I’m BIASED, as I live 5 minutes from the liberty bowl stadium. Naturally, I wish more mid-tier Power 5s viewed the top of the heap in the Group of 5 as great quality scheduling opportunities.

      The cities are easy to get to and stay in, usually the stadium’s only fault is that they’re too big for G5 games, and a loss to the houstons, cincinnattis, memphises etc are not huge P-R risks for (historically) mid-to lower tier P5 teams. The best ole miss team in 50 years still went and won the sugar bowl after getting their asses handed to them by Memphis.

      Yes, we have to wait till the second half of this decade to start seeing the Sanford Stadium editions of the home & homes with UCLA, Florida State, Texas, Clemson, Oklahoma, and Ohio State. Just the “neutral site” matchups till then, plus the visit to OU. Southern Cal has snatched up the opening with San Jose State since we put them aside to play Clemson in 2021.

    Why would the rivalry games be excluded? They are Power 5 OOC games. They count. Skews the list, IMHO>.

      Agree, how do you justify that logic? I do wish UGA weren’t stuck with gt, especially as a home and home, we wouldn’t give other mid-majors an equal position. Play us in Athens, or schedule Kennesaw and Ga State if you want a home and home relationship.
