2020-2021 Schedule

Postby mbenecke » Wed Sep 02, 2020 7:23 pm

The 2020-2021 schedule is beginning to take shape, for what could be a very special season in Bowling Green.

The MAC released the conference-only portion of the schedule today, and it features an extra 2 league games to make it 20 MAC games this season. BG will play the following:

Sat 1/2 @ Northern Illinois
Tue 1/5 @ Miami
Sat 1/9 vs. Central Michigan
Tue 1/12 vs. Ball State
Sat 1/16 @ Buffalo
Tue 1/19 vs. Akron
Sat 1/23 @ Central Michigan
Tue 1/26 vs. Northern Illinois
Sat 1/30 vs. Toledo
Tue 2/2 @ Eastern Michigan
Sat 2/6 vs. Western Michigan
Tue 2/9 vs. Kent State
Sat 2/13 @ Toledo
Tue 2/16 @ Ball State
Sat 2/20 vs. Ohio
Tue 2/23 @ Kent State
Sat 2/27 @ Akron
Tue 3/2 vs. Miami

If I'm not mistaken, they are moving toward a 22-game, double round-robin conference schedule beginning in 2021-22. I've heard that they (the MAC) wanted to have a 22-game schedule this year, but some schools had already lined up their non-conference schedules. Hopefully we're able to start the season on Jan. 2!

I think you're right.

Also, this is only the conference slate - we should still have a good amount of non-conference games this season, if everything goes to plan. I think the season is currently being planned to start in late November.

I like that they are moving to a 22 game conference schedule. That is an automatic 11 home games. I think the MAC or someone requires 15 home games so that leaves 4 more out of 10ish OOC games giving 32 total.

Pick 4 Horizon league teams and play them every year with 2 home and 2 away. Build some OOC rivalries with bus distance teams so fans can travel.
Not sure what happens to holiday tournaments with the shifted schedule this year but normally being in one of them is nice so 3 neutral site games.
1 D2 scrimmage and probably 1 D2 home game.
1 Frack home game. I'd love to get teams like Dayton, UC or Xavier but that has not been the case so far.
1 away at power conference.

15 home, 3 neutral and 14 away. I think this is realistic but not wonderful. I'd like to see more games against some more highly rated conferences but that is easier said than done.

The ACC is proposing today that every single Division I team makes the 2021 NCAA tournament. (via Jon Rothstein)
