Don't we have a home and home against Nebraska? Who is often considered a blue blood.

Not sure if you can compare the two really. Scheduling home and home with an opponent is often about recruiting. Nebraska has very little homegrown talent. They have to shop elsewhere for recruits (and now that they are in the B10 they rely on Midwestern recruiting much more than they did in their Big8/B12 days when they feasted on Texas and Oklahoma recruits). Texas has so much talent they do not need to leave the Lonestar state.

I'm sure we could get a home and home with our home game scheduled for 2052.

Yes, well played. By 2040, the Millennials will control Congress and make college football illegal for health and safety reasons, saving Texas from this dreaded return game. Texas will offer a Quidditch match in old Nippert as a consolation for the lost gate receipts.

Quidditch would be sweet at Nippert. The image of a millennial flying too closely to doss' box and getting clotheslined by his cane is tantalizing.

I attended a Quidditch match at the University of Virginia. Very enjoyable. Would have been moreso if the concession stand was open.

With 3 remaining OC games to schedule each year it's possible one date could be available every other year for UC if Herman wants to play Fickel/UC. In 2017 Texas has 7 home games and 5 away.

I looked at their schedule. They seem to be going with the OSU model of one marquee intersectional home and away game and everybody else comes to Austin for a payout game. Maryland may not seem like a marquee game, but it is intersectional in a major media/recruiting market and they're playing it in the Redskins stadium.

Oh no!
We have a much better chance of playing the Mean Green before we play the Longhorns. Closer to C-USA than the B12.
