          My favorite has to be in a few years when BYU plays a ROAD game at Liberty.

          At least it is at Foxboro, where UMass plays several games per year rather than in Amherst where UMass has a 17,000 seat stadium.   No doubt it will take 65,000 seats to hold all the Mormons missionaries in Massachusetts and their investigators.

      I don’t know about favorite, but a couple that stand out to me:

      Florida plays two FCS teams – 9/1 vs Charleston Southern & 11/17 vs Idaho  I don’t think this was intentional as Idaho probably didn’t have plans to drop to FCS when the game was scheduled.

      New Mexico State vs Liberty twice in the same season – 10/6 in Las Cruces, NM & 11/24 in Lynchburg, VA

        Not a quirk but SEC business-as-usual:  Citadel at Alabama, Nov 17.

        Liberty at Auburn and UMass at Georgia, also Nov 17.

        How long until SEC recognises that TDS can be scheduled for a proper mid-November beatdown?

      One of the teams in McNeese State’s conference is a team I have never heard of.  The name of the school is Incarnate Word.  I thought I had heard of most colleges, but I admit I had never heard of this school.  Here are a few facts about the school:

      – Located in San Antonio

      – 64% of the students are non-white (51% Hispanic, which makes sense in San Antonio)

      – They only won one football game last year

      – They averaged 21 points a game and gave up an average of 47 points a game

      I think BYU should try to scheule them.  I am sure they would love the money they would get for playing in Provo and BYU would certainly get a win.

        Only started football in 2009,  played Div II for a few years, then Independent FCS for one year before joining the Southland Conference in 2014.

        I got my doctorate there haha. Ute and Cardinal alum. I never went to a football game at incarnate word, but a couple basketball games. My program wasnt on the main campus. But it is a pretty little campus especially at Christmas.
