I think the game stays canceled until we get to the end of the season, and any of us still has a shot at a division title, and that game would make the difference.

In that case, it's possible the AAC could push back the CCG game a week and let Mem-UCF and/or USF/UConn be played that weekend. Of course, that would make the AAC CCG the same week as Army-Navy, so that's a complication if Navy is still in the running.

Since we don't share a bye week, the only possible date to make it up would be September 30. UCF hosts Maine on that date, while Memphis travels to Georgia State. We would have to get Georgia State to agree to host Maine instead of Memphis, and have Maine agree to travel to Atlanta instead of Orlando.

Georgia State is an away game for Memphis, which would mean they'd have to buy it out, which could mean a lot of money.

If I'm commish for the season, I leave it alone for now. If Navy gets mathematically eliminated from the AAC championship game, I move the AAC championship to the week of Army/Navy and play all these make up games the week the AAC championship was supposed to be played.

Great minds. We were typing at the same time. 04-cheers

You can't delay the CCG without throwing bowl selection into chaos. Starting with the NY6 bowl for highest ranked conference champion without existing NY6 bowl contract.
You saw the fits that were pitched about possibly waiting to after Army-Navy and that could have been done affecting only two schools and their bowls. This would ripple through multiple bowls, including some within a week of the Army-Navy (/proposed AAC ccg) game date.

And OF COURSE Navy will be in the running for West Division...

I doubt Georgia State and Maine would want to replaced P6 opponents with FCS or G4 opponents. 05-stirthepot

Play the make-up games Friday night before Army-Navy, then the AAC championship a week later. Extend the season, get more eyeballs.

this will have domino effect throughout college football. The playoff committee needs to account for it when seeing Houston #4 vs #1 Alabama for the semi-final.

There is a playoff committee for Women's Darts?

I saw this suggestion on twitter:
UCF/Memphis play in Week 9 via the following: move Tulane/ECU from W11 to W9, move Tulane/Memphis + ECU/Houston from 9 to 11.

From Tulane's standpoint, the switch shouldn't make any difference because we're on the road for each game. Not sure about ECU and Houston
