Rutgers withdraws from 2-game series with UCLA


#1

Games were to be played in 2016 and 2017 but moved to 2020 and 2021 at the behest of Rutgers. This would be a great series if we could slide into that slot.


#2

Our non-conference schedule is full for 2020 and 2021. We still need a game for 2019 though.

Here are the P5 teams who also need a non-conference game in 2019.

Florida State
Miami
TCU
Florida
South Carolina
Alabama
Arkansas

That’s a good selection if our AD can work it out.

“Rutgers reportedly canceled its home-and-home series with UCLA to make room for the Syracuse series and must pay $500,000 to UCLA for backing out of the agreement.”

On a possibly related note, the NRG people have not announced who’s playing in the 2019 Kickoff Classic.


#5

UH Florida State would be a great game for the kickoff classic

Our return trip to OU is currently scheduled for that weekend


(Cristian) #7

Wasnt NRG considered Neutral? could location be possibly moved there again?


#8

I don’t think OU would willingly pass up millions in ticket sales and local economy weekend boost.

We already have our 2 P5 OOC schedule locked for 2019 with OU and Washington St. We need to schedule a G5 team at home.


#10

So there’s a rule somewhere that says we can’t schedule 3 P5 schools in a season? I’d like a reference, please.


(Alfred Matthews) #11

i was saying that because Hunter said going forward we will schedule 2 P5 and 2 G5 schools for OOC. Not sure what Pezman’s plan is going forward.


#12

Yeah. We don’t wanna go to the Rose Bowl in a greater market area of 21,000,000.


#13

Tired of the pac12 complacent arse. Rather play the SEC or Florida St.


#14

Are you saying that you would rather go to Starkville Mississippi than Los Angles?


#15

Football is more relevant in Starkville than Los Angeles so for a good college game day and game time atmosphere, you betcha.


#16

I attended both of our most recent games in L.A. and believe the game day and game time atmosphere was great. You haven’t lived until you have walked a golf course filled with UCLA fans tailgating.
