Future FAU Football Schedules

Re: 2008 Football & Future Schedules

2014 & Future Football Schedules

owlcountry said

There are a bunch of schools I'd like us to play on there (Boston College, Penn State, Alabama, Michigan, Wisconsin) but when you consider the fact that we're playing Nebraska and South Carolina already, they're probably going to want to dial it down for the fourth opponent… although Duke might work there. Why not?

Rutgers needs 3 opponents… nothing like last minute planning, eh?

Years ago I asked coach whether or not we would ever play Rutgers. I remember him saying "Rutgers won't play us, but we are going to play Texas" and then he smiled at me. So…. don't know if that still holds true, but I wouldn't mind playing Rutgers.

Re: 2008 Football & Future Schedules

My opinion: Don't play an ACC, SEC, Big East. Big 10 or Big 12 team. Why? Because we already have. Let's get some new flavored lollipops.

ACC: South Carolina and Clemson
SEC: Florida, Kentucky
Big East: Louisville, UConn, USF
Big 10: Minnesota, MSU
Big 12: Okie St, Texas, Kansas, Kansas State

What about …. C-USA: Houston, Rice, UTEP.

Let's play some teams that are "comparable" to us.

No big deal, but USC is a SEC school not ACC.

We need to decide what conference we are trying to move to and go play the best teams from that conference whether it be Cincy and Louisville out of the Big East or Tulsa or East Carolina out of Conference USA.

I couldn't find a list of FCS (aka Div. I-AA) teams still needing games for 2009 (their schedules always come later). But here is a pretty good rundown of BCS (aka Div. I-A) teams still having open slots on their 2009 schedules:

ERROR: A link was posted here (url) but it appears to be a broken link.

Elsewhere on the same site (go to home page), schedules (mostly partials) for some FCS (I-AA) teams are listed.

I just know you are hoping for an FAU trip to Fort Collins.  ;)

Hey, I'd take Fort Collins, Boulder or Colorado Springs (Air Force). I already have AF season tix. The Falcons have a home-and-home series with Florida State coming up – right state, wrong team.
