Why don't we schedule any non-conference games in Texas?

    Why have we not set up more games in Texas? It would help recruiting Texas players. We are doing better in the Lone-Star state; but we could use all of the help we could get.

    Withe such a challenging PAC-12 Schedule, we would not need to play UT or A&M, we would be better off playing Rice, Houston or SMU for now. More exposure to a recruiting hotbed, seems like a no-brainer. Am I missing something?

    Arizona beat us to the Cougars (home and home 2017-18) announced just this past season.

    I'll bet we do eventually -- scheduling is done years in advance.

    Because the only teams that would schedule us aren't worth a 1 and 1. Sure it might be nice to play North Texas (Denton) or Texas State (San Marcos, but basically Austin), but that would cost us 2 home games. No thanks

    Rice plays some of their bigger non-conference games in Houston (Reliant Field). I'd be up for a 1-for-1 in that case.

    I doubt we'd be a Reliant Field game at this point.

    I would have said the same thing about Gillette Stadium vis-a-vis UMass.

    How does that contract work? Don't they have to play a certain amount of games there(I thought it was all but maybe it's less now).

    It's kind of tough with the 9 game pac-12 schedule and the obligation to play CSU in Denver. We're looking at one non-conference away game every other year.

    I wouldn't mind playing TT, TCU, or Baylor (when they come back down to earth). I guess TCU preferably to get into the metroplex.

    That's why I'd want to play them...after they're put on probation or Briles leaves or recruits figure out the Waco sucks.

    We need to drop the CSU game to open up more opportunities.
