They have decided on Thanksgiving weekend and ...outdoors...I can't find what date they are playing that Battle for South Dakota, but to be fair, it might be in hurricane season...so there is that.
On the other hand, the Dakotas aren't doing very well on the Covid thing.
I do not understand your question. What I see is the P5s playing mostly home games and other P5s in bubble situations to fill in about 8 OOC games. 27 games is the limit this year. The ACC has I think 15 teams so I feel like they will play a majority of their games in-conference. I wish the NCAA would come out and require a certain number of OOC games to be eligible for the tournament this year. I just feel like this mess is going to be a way for P5s game the system.Just a thought, but Big 12 and BE can't double up; they're already round robin.
But doesn't what you describe present an opportunity for someone else to participate?
