Thread: Are We Scheduled To Play/Beat The goofers After This Year?

    To return to the OP's question, not in the foreseeable future.

    FBS schools are limited to playing one FCS team per year. Minnesota has the following FCS games scheduled after this coming season:

    2012--New Hampshire
    2013--Western Illinois
    2014--Eastern Illinois
    2015--South Dakota State
    2016--Indiana State

    The Gophers have one to three non-conference games scheduled each year from 2017 through 2021. All are against FBS programs so it's conceivable that NDSU might land on one of those schedules. However, the Big Ten is considering moving to a nine-game conference schedule sometime after 2015, in which case there would be one fewer non-conference game for each school--three instead of four. This fall's game might be the swan song for the NDSU-Minnesota rivalry.

    One would think they would prefer to schedule UNI, USD, NDSU and SDSU once every four years...Not to knock those other schools, but the interest plus visitor attendance will be pretty low, no?

    I don't think they can handle the embarassment anymore. With our fan following and our winning. Too much for a BIG 10 team to take.

    I think that's it, Bison Dan. NDSU is too much of a powerhouse to risk playing. Must be why Iowa doesn't want to play the Bison either.

    UNI is pretty much locked in to Iowa and Iowa State as its FBS opponents. I know it's declined invitations to play Minnesota and Wisconsin, and perhaps others as well.

    Good point about UNI...I didn't think of that.

    The only one of those future games that will have any "draw" at all, will be the SDSU game......

    I think it might be a trial and error philosophy.
    They're likely going through the FCS lists looking for a team that they can handle.

    EDIT: sorry Dan. Pretty much what you were getting at. I hadn't read that far down yet.

    The Gophers have scheduled ANOTHER game with South Dakota State for 2019. Interestingly, the Jacks have never beaten Minnesota. Discuss.

    To better put it the Jacks have never beaten an FBS team.
