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)

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

While this looks like a self-serving post by a UMass fan, it makes perfectly good sense on a lot of levels for these three schools to play an annual round robin. They represent 100% of the FBS schools in the entire New England region. They should eventually produce the biggest annual attendance for all of them (excluding the occasional home game against Notre Dame).

Annual Football Series that Should Happen
Little known fact: Vanderbilt vs Texas was a rivalry waaay back
This would be a great revival rivalry seeing as both teams are playing at the same level

I agree Notre Dame should play a B1G East opponent annually (Michigan, Michigan State mostly, but also Ohio State or Penn State now and again), but it doesn't really matter which, so long as it is one of them.

Don't care much about P5 vs G5 rivalries. Not going to worry about those, they are done. Just a couple stragglers left, and only one, Navy vs Notre Dame, has solid economic value.


Why? I didn't miss the Big Ten being off ND's schedule completely in 2015. It did not diminish anything in my world.

Why should ND play a Big Ten East team annually? Geography?

The Big Ten always dictated that those games should be in early September or not at all.

The hell with them.

P.S. So, the posters here think that annual ND games against Michigan, Alabama and BYU should be mandated. That would clog up the schedule with Southern Cal, Stanford and Navy on tap every year along with 5 ACC games.

Seems to be a lot of interest in ND games in this thread.

There is nothing in it for most P5 programs to play little G5 programs in their state.

We'll see who cares when the cats leave Oxford on the wrong side of the scoreboard this September. The decade-plus joyride against Miami is over.

Miami-Marshall used to a great rivalry when then they were in the MAC, but it went dead for a while. We had a home-and-home during our winless season and the one following, we're starting one up again this fall. Wouldn't mind seeing it relatively often, although with one of four OOC games taken by UC and one with a buy game, it doesn't give us much maneuvering room for scheduling other teams.

What I mean by "caring" is that we are talking about a series that has been played every year since 1888, yet if you talk to a non-alum of either school who lives outside of southwest Ohio they wouldn't even know the two schools have ever played one another. It doesn't help that whenever the game is played in Oxford, it is relegated to ESPN 3.

As for this coming season, it would be nice for you guys to finally win this game after 12 years. The series is getting stale as hell. Tuberville tried the best he could to take UC football to the early 90s, but luckily the university has moved on and the train is back in motion.

Rutgers vs UConn in football
Cuse v UConn in football

I like this, but what really need to happen is for both UMass and UConn to start an annual basketball game again. Like back when we were both in the yankee conference. ( IK this is a football related thread)

Just noticed something. UCONN fans have been adding to the list for "UCONN vs some northeast school" as a couple replies. No one else picks up on it. That tells us something, but not sure what...

I was at that one. I think it was our first Div. 1-A game. There was an article on al.com a few months ago about talks between the schools for another game. Who knows what will come of that, though.

Still, it seems ECU would want to have an AAC rivalry game on that weekend. Who is ECU's AAC arch rival? I would say UCF but it seems like USF/UCF would play that weekend.

ECU doesn't have a true conference rival IMHO. We were mostly all left behind's / Eastern independent or "newish FBS programs" (USF/UCF).

I agree with you on App State. I honestly believe ECU and App should play every season. We've played App State more times than anybody other current FBS team.

http://www.winsipedia.com/east-carolina

App - 41 games (12-19 App, mostly at FCS level)
USM - 39 games (12-27 USM, they're just REALLY had our number for some reason)
NCSU - 29 games (13-16 NCSU)

^^^ These 3 games need to be on a every other or 3rd year rotation probably. Everybody else is a warm body IMHO. I've never felt a real "rivalry" with UCF, it only exists online. I don't know a single UCF grad.
