Both them and Tarleton were not originally part of the WAC football schedule for ‘21. Now apparently per FBSchedules, they are confirmed by the WAC as league foes for ‘21 football. Will need to adjust tomorrow

Wow! Great job. This dude dropped some knowledge. Mario Moccia should hire him, stat! Do you have access to the Chicago State video he alluded to? If so, can you share that as well? I’d like to see it.

FB schedules and the Tarleton athletics site are in disagreement on that as well as the entire schedule

Where’s the 2021 fall football schedule live on the Tarleton website? Would love to see it and the disparities between it and the FBSchedules website. Maybe I’m overlooking things?

FBSchedules says it got confirmation yesterday that Tarleton, Dixie are playing league schedules in fall ‘21. I am presuming there’s a lot of things going on behind scenes at both as it relates to contracted games

I see where things went awry. I never saw that you were talking about fall football and thought spring football. Of course the two would be in disagreement then.

Change to SFA for '21. Opens up another game they can take from Dixie and/or Tarleton State.

RE: Future Football Schedules - Western Athletic Conference
Well, Dixie State’s AD made it official. They aren’t likely playing a full WAC schedule this coming year... and then says it’s possible but not certain
—-
Even though the DSU football program has a new and permanent home in the WAC, it will have to wait to face its new opponents.

Boothe said the football program won’t necessarily have a full WAC schedule this year because of how quickly four out of the five teams will transition to the WAC on July 1. There won’t be a full WAC schedule until 2022.

https://fbschedules.com/lamar-northweste...2023-2024/

The Lamar Cardinals, one of four Southland Conference schools departing for the WAC this fall, have already lined up a future home-and-home football series with one of their fellow Southland members.

According to Lamar’s official athletics website, Lamar and the Northwestern State Demons will play a home-and-home series in 2023 and 2024.

The series will begin with the Cardinals hosting the Demons at Provost Umphrey Stadium in Beaumont, Texas, on Sept. 2, 2023 and will conclude the following year when the series shifts to NSU’s Harry Turpin Stadium in Natchitoches, La., on Sept. 21, 2024.

I am going to act as if we do not need to add these to the original post unless there is confirmation of an ASUN/WAC hybrid, but just to share these - they all have three OOC games as far as we know heading into '21 with no known previously scheduled games against the WAC participants.

09/11 - at Missouri State
09/18 - Arkansas-Pine Bluff

RE: Future Football Schedules - Western Athletic Conference
Actually it looks like Dixie State will not join in 2021. They were not planning on joining that early and neither was Southern Utah. Dixie State needs the year to unwind their schedule. Also joining right away causes concern among the ASUN three.

What is looking like will happen is instead the new ASUN schools, Jacksonville State, Eastern Kentucky, Central Arkansas will play the Texas four and likely Tarleton State in 2021 (they have not come close to completing their 2021 schedule).

North Alabama and Kennesaw State, like Southern Utah and Dixie State, already have fixed schedules under contract. Like the WAC, the ASUN planned to start football in 2022, but the SLC wanted the schools out now, and the OVC schools were ready to move now. The Big South already has their schedule done, much like the Big Sky, and it would not be wise to screw with them.

So those 8 schools by coming together for a year in the WAC would give everyone 7 conference games, filling most of the 8 game hole created by leaving their conferences. They would also give the WAC an AQ.

Those three ASUN schools would depart in 2022, and the two Utah schools come on board. The ASUN seems to be pretty confident they have a 6th qualifying school in their reach for 2022. For the WAC they should keep the AQ in 2022 on continuation rule, which gives them 2 years to get back in compliance -- they would be back in compliance in 2023 with Dixie State being done with their transition, and a 7th school eligible in 2024 when Tarleton is done with their transition. (Note, North Alabama completes their transition after the 2021-22 school year, so they would count for the ASUN in 2022).

This has already been discussed extensively

On the Dixie State front, we’ve even shared comments made by their AD related to the schedule.

On the ASUN front, we all know this is going to be a hybrid conference or a scheduling arrangement based on the comments of the EKU AD and the ASUN Commish.

On the D1 eligibility and transition, there’s a thread about a proposal to expedite it and there are also posts about the likely waiver the WAC gets in ‘22 when they are a school short

RE: Future Football Schedules - Western Athletic Conference
This is new, Dixie State has added a date at Delaware on same date of North Alabama game. Could this be part of the shuffle(s) related to ASUN, Big South, Southland, WAC situations? North Alabama and Dixie State both involved in that with ASUN/Big South and WAC, respectively.

Quote:NEWARK, Del. – The University of Delaware and Colonial Athletic Association have announced the 2021 fall football schedule with the Blue Hens set to host six contests inside Delaware Stadium.

With the unique spring season, Delaware is scheduled to play 18 games in the calendar year.

The season will open with a tough CAA road test at Maine on Sept. 4 before the home-opener against Saint Francis, Sept. 11.

Homecoming is slated for Oct. 23 when the Blue Hens host James Madison and Parents & Families Weekend is Oct. 2 against Albany.

Additional non-conference opponents include a trip to Big Ten foe Rutgers on Sept. 18 and an Oct. 30 meeting with Dixie State in Newark. It will be the first meeting in program history between the Blue Hens and Trailblazers.

RE: Future Football Schedules - Western Athletic Conference
Southern Utah will travel to take on Wyoming in Laramie on Saturday, Sept. 11, 2027. The Thunderbirds will receive a $425,000 guarantee for the game, per the contract copy.

The 2027 Wyoming-Southern Utah contest will mark only the second meeting in football between the two schools. The Cowboys defeated the Thunderbirds in their first meeting in Laramie in 2010, 28-20.
