Looking at site possibilities...

 

Virginia Tech - road?

UCF - home?

SMU - road?

Old Dominion - home?

LaTech - road?

Southern Miss - home?

UAB - road?

Air Force - road?

You left off all the FCS teams...

Seriously, hope we can skip the FCS team next year, that is the one game I wish would go away.

 

I don't remember if the Cal game was home or away, but if away, then from the list add homes with UCF and either Southern Miss or Old Dominion.

 

If the Cal game is home, then go to Virginia Tech.

I'm pretty sure we play Colorado next year and the year after.  Isn't Cal after that?

Is there some thought we don't renew with SMU?   I absolutely hate that game but I thought Patterson liked playing it.  

 

No one on that list really jumps out at me, so I favor whatever would be a home game.

I don't know if the schedule permits... but would like to see a game verse University of Tennessee or Vanderbilt, Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech, Miami, Syracuse, Boston College. Think they are tough games but winnable. Think they would also help strength of schedule and force the team to show up. Think part of the problem with the SMU game is that the frogs sleep walk through the first half and SMU comes ready to play their superbowl of the season.

Not necessarily for 2020, but at some point I'd love to see us revisit a few of the "rivalries" we formed in our CUSA/MWC days: Louisville, Southern Miss, Utah, Boise State.

It's not fair that OU gets Army + two cupcakes.

Give me S. Miss at home and SMU on the road.  If not SMU, then La Tech.

We have to play SMU now. Can't let them keep the skillet indefinitely.

Honestly I don't care about the skillet.  Let them have it and cook with it nightly.  I hate that game, it does us zero good.  We get zero credit if we beat them by 40, it's their Superbowl so it's often close, and so we get beat up for that.  I know it's close and that is helpful, especially in the years we have 5 conference road games.  But I just feel the negatives greatly outweigh the convenience.

The game has become very stale. Its like, Coach moans about not having people in the stands, but who wants to sit through that silly game in 95 degree heat and then get our ass beat? No thanks.
