Annual Football Series that Should Happen
Here are a few series that I think should happen every year in college football that currently do not happen (this is just for fun so do not worry about conference games and number of games, etc). If there are any more games that you think should happen every year post them

1) Tulane vs. LSU (Thanksgiving, Super Dome / Baton Rouge)
2) NC State vs. East Carolina (Thanksgiving Home/Home)
3) Marshall vs. West Virginia (Home/Home)
4) Pitt vs. West Virginia
5) Texas vs. Texas A&M (Thanksgiving)
6) Arkansas State vs. Arkansas (Labor Day Weekend in Little Rock)
7) Cincinnati vs. Louisville
8) Memphis vs. Ole Miss
9) Florida vs. Miami
10) Maryland vs. Navy
11) Temple vs. Penn State
12) Temple vs. Rutgers
13) Boston College vs. UConn
14) Miami (OH) vs. Cincinnati
15) Notre Dame vs. Michigan
16) Illinois vs. NIU
17) UTEP vs. New Mexico
18) UTEP vs. NM State
19) NM State vs. New Mexico (Thanksgiving)
20) BYU vs. Utah State
21) Utah State vs. Utah
22) Utah vs. BYU (Thanksgiving)
23) Houston vs. Rice (Thanksgiving)
24) Eastern Washington @ Washington St. (Labor Day Weekend)
25) UAB vs. Alabama (week before Thanksgiving, gives Alabama a defacto home game in Birmingham every other year)
26) Southern Miss vs. Ole Miss
27) Southern Miss vs. Mississippi State
28) WKU vs. Kentucky
29) Memphis vs. Tennessee
30) Eastern Michigan @ Michigan (First Home Game for Michigan)
31) Kansas vs. Missouri (Thanksgiving)

If Texas and A&M start back up TCU & SMU should move the Battle of the Iron Skillet to Thanksgiving.

#2 would be nice but I think it will be lucky if the current every 3 years is renewed. I have a sad feeling this game will slowly be fading away. Also, it appears the ACC is trying to make NCSU vs UNC a Thanksgiving Weekend game since this will be the 3rd straight year the game has been played on that weekend.

I would not say Pitt/WVU and UConn/BC are annual games though. WVU and Pitt did sign a four game series but that is not an annual game contract, a ten game series may have been more of a confirmation of it going long term. Same for UConn/BC. The point of this was not games that occur here and there but ones that should happen every year annually

32) UConn vs UMass
33) Boston College vs UMass

Like #13 these have started up again where it's a round robin where UConn plays Boston College and the following year UMass. Some years you will see both as our 2018 schedule. http://www.fbschedules.com/ncaa-18/2018-...hedule.php

I agree, however we both know UNC vs. Duke is the the Thanksgiving game, and NC State and ECU should play on Thanksgiving as well. It would be the best for the entire state of North Carolina and really create more college football noise in our state late in the season which we seem to lose as the season goes along and as basketball season approaches.

BYU-Utah St. series actually was over Thanksgiving weekend the past two seasons.

BYU-Utah doesn't happen over Thanksgiving anymore because of the PAC 12 schedule...which amazingly allows BYU to play California, USC, and Stanford over Thanksgiving in like 5 out of 10 years.
