Kent has no fans so they need to make money some way.

If you have no fans, then why have a team. Makes no sense to me
To compete in MAC BBall, baseball and golf, they have this requirement you also have to play FBS football.

RE: 3 pay day games in 1 season? New normal for some?
Years ago UAB had an AD that dictated two buy games per year to pay the bills while trying to make one a realistic chance for an upset (e.g., Miss St, Kansas, Vandy). Current coach Bill Clark put a stop to that because, as someone else pointed out, it likely cripples bowl chances in FBS. With 8 conference games, we typically do:

1) FCS
2) G5 home/away
3) G5 away/home (to balance #2...South Alabama and Akron beginning 2018 in UAB's case), G5 one-off, or lower P5 2/1 if the opportunity comes
4) P5 buy game in recruiting area (we had a choice between @Oregon and @Texas A&M for 2018 and chose the latter)
