There’s a lot of time between now and then, but our schedule is looking very “Sunbelt-ish” beyond 2025. I guess all we can do is hope those games remain OOC affairs.

Sun Belt teams are logical to play out of conference. They are easy road trips, chance at decent crowds.

True. Evidently, we could not make any, or had no desire, for H&H with any of the AAC teams.

A lot of the AAC teams don't want to play C-USA teams. There are not many of those on the books.

With the new playoff format the AAC will do what the P5 teams do - protect themseleves. They will schedule weak FBS teams so as to not lessen themselves as they go for the G5 playoff slot. Its gonna be real tough for top G5 teams outside of the AAC to get games with the AAC or many P5 teams for that matter. Previously-scheduled games can/will be bought out if a team feels threatened. Sorry about the rant on this forum...

AAC teams don't want to hang with the kids from the old neighborhood. It's really as simple as that. Unless there is a strategic self-interest (i.e., UCF wants to recruit South Florida so they agreed to play FAU), you won't see many of the old C-USA teams play current C-USA teams.

Umm, why would we want to have contracts for AAC non con games if we are trying to get into that league?
