Good pick up for NMSU

You never start can start the football season to early. Also, allows NMSU to schedule an additional home game. That helps with 2-1's deals. Wonder when Hawaii schedules Liberty?

I thought the 13 game rule only applied to games at Hawaii. No?

The year NMSU plays at Hawai'i, they can schedule a 13th game.

RE: Good pick up for NMSU
NMSU will be lucky to get 6 home games.

If you look at their schedules, they are really empty after September. They filled 2018 because of Liberty, but even with Liberty they will probably only have 5 home games, two against FCS in 2019. (there are very few remaining G5 options to come to Las Cruces and maybe none will fill any but the Sept. 28th slot in 2019, and require a return game by NMSU). Hawaii unfortunately is just another set of September games. This is their big problem, without a huge wad of cash like Liberty has to throw around.

That said, it's good for NMSU to get more western opponents. The 2021 schedule especially looks good from that stand point with 5 MWC and UTEP. But the same post September problem remains, and September is filled up.

I believe they will have to get a waiver, they are required 5 home games with 4 being FBS and 1 being FCS. Granted I could see a waiver for 2019, UMASS is still needs two games, in theory the could do the H/H to help both teams get to 5 home games in 2019 or 2019/20 H&H. The extra game year could be a 2nd FCS Home game for the 13th to get 6 home games.

I wasn't worried about a waiver, just what NMSU fans will think about season tickets for five home games, including against Liberty, Incarnate Word and say (picking a name out of the hat) Prairie View A&M

RE: Good pick up for NMSU
I think NMSU will be able to fill out the 2019 schedule OK. Currently the schedule is sitting at 3 home (including 1 FCS) and 6 away, but schools have been willing to work with us. There is the chance that a game could be moved to accommodate the front end of another home and home. There are plenty of schools that are willing to play us H/H, so just a matter of getting the right fit.

But certainly it is tight - not the easiest schedule to make work. Liberty definitely helps us in 2018 and 2019.

And I think NMSU fans will be OK, though not thrilled, with 5 home games each year. That is probably going to be reality for a while. That is where the 2018 schedule is. If NMSU can stay around the .500 mark, then folks will be happy - especially if at least one of those wins is against UTEP or UNM.

Wishing the best for NMSU. Have to think some SB teams will be willing to help with transition to Indy. Seeing how BYU has scheduled UMASS and Liberty, have to think they will schedule NMSU.

I know UMass and NMSU have been in talks and are working on scheduling games. Just a matter of time before it's announced. Lots of shuffling to do.
