Figured I'd start a thread on this. As everybody knows PSU has upcoming home and away games with Virginia Tech, Auburn and West Virginia. All good and most are happy about that. But today PSU announced other future non-conference opponents. Get read for this: PSU is playing Delaware and Villanova in future seasons. That's in addition to Idaho next year. I thought the BIG had basically agreed to no schedule FCS (I-AA) schools anymore? Idaho was a FBS school when it was scheduled and then dropped down so I can deal with that. But Nova and Delaware? Good god, that's terrible.

It's a joke. My guess is it's driven by $$$$. Given every other year B1? dictates you will have 5 away games that mandates those year PSU will seek all their OOC games be home so they have at least 7 home games. In years they have 5 home B1? games they will need 2 home games. This means you have stagger your home and home series and then the remaining OOC games have to be teams that don't require a return trip. My guess this is in effect a "cheap date". We're sexy again but apparently we'll still go out with someone who will take care of our needs for just the cost of a PB&J sandwich and a PBR pounder

Ya know, I've gotten to the point that I don't care about the OOC. Every year the BiG Conference slate is a grind, so getting the gimmes early gives the team some momentum (not to mention: my heart a break), along with some time to figure it out. The only way I want to see a ND or USC is in a bowl game or, preferably, the FBS.

Rumors of a home and home with Texas later in the 2020s. Although looking at Texas' schedule, they appear to be set.

Here's a future schedule: the season finale against Maryland will start at 3:30 pm. I figured I'd stick it here since we apparently have lost the 2018 Team thread in one of B&W's spam cleanings.

For the record, I wasn't busting on you. You have bigger things to do than clean up this board from Russian interference on a regular basis.

I know, but it annoys me when I do that.

All school are doing it. Bama played Mercer, La-Lafeyette, and citadel this year which are 1AA schools. BTW, I am not sure there are 1AA teams anymore but don't quote me on that
