    Jacks add Cowboys in 2024, in lieu of Huskers (who delay what would have been their third contest vs. Jacks this millenium to 2030). Jacks are still trying to add FBS opponents in 2023 & 2025.

    I believe you are referring to November 19th. Since you made this post it was announced that our women's basketball team will be playing on that date in the Bahamas in the Battle 4 Atlantis. Now we can all go to the Bahamas and not feel like we are abandoning the football team in the final week of the season.
    Now there's a "rum & Coke (or, in my case, Barq's) glass half full" perspective

    That is bizarre regarding the bye week. I am confident that the Jacks will NOT lose on Hobo Day next year against Indiana State. If they get seeded in the playoffs the Jacks would have three weeks in between games. Odd to say the least
    Seems like a schedule that would've been nicer to have this season given Covid roster exemptions, but I guess we'll see.

    Looks like they managed to keep us playing the 3 other Dakota teams on consecutive weeks again next year. Not that it is an issue but seems odd it happens in back to back years.
    I'd be curious if the team prefers that for travel, given UND and NDSU are road .

    Three of their final five games will be indoors, and the conference title "picture" could be clear by Halloween

    Wonder if ole buddy Dan Jackson would come back for an ass kicking. I’m sure not. But hell we should travel there and still teach him a lesson about football.

    2021 "Eck Bowl" with MSU-Mankato would've been interesting; unfortunately, their website doesn't list the 2021 Fall schedule to confirm availability

    I hate it as well, but I think it's a good problem to have. Somewhat means that you've "made it" when teams are potentially scared to travel to you or set up non conference games with you. At the same time, the valley is so brutal and every win is so crucial that I don't hate it...

    My initial thought on the schedule was... dang... NDSU, UNI, UND and SIU all at home, that's going to be a tough road schedule the following year. Then I realized we just went 3-1 on the road against those teams this year - that is quite an accomplishment for this year I didn't even realize we did.
    Jacks don't play Salukis in 2022, but they will face Bears on road. Non-con home games are UC-Davis and Butler on 9/10 and 9/17, respectively

    Next year's schedule is also interesting in that 'Yotes game is 10/8 with Bison and Hawks immediately following that

    I hate that they can't find someone who will come to South Dakota. I'm sure it was who they could find last minute, but we really need to find a way to entice teams to travel here. Teams either don't want to travel to South Dakota or are afraid of playing the Jackrabbits (*cough* Montana *cough*).

    Can't say anyone is happy to see the Jacks play Lindenwood. Tarleton St was looking good for a team transitioning to D1. I hate that they can't find someone who will come to South Dakota.

    Too bad Tarleton hadn't backed out months earlier, as EWU might have been an option (even if it would've meant playing on a neutral field)

    EWU is playing DII Central Washington that day. Imagine having the inaugural "FCS Coors Field Classic" that day. Before anyone dismisses that, the Rockies being away at least two days before, and over a week after, and their owner previously expressing interest in hosting a college football game suggests it could happen.

    Sure, the Jacks and EWU would lose home games, and the loser may have playoff prospects reduced, but both teams would gain attention, the winner would knock off an FCS "power," thereby bolstering playoff hopes, and it's likely that considerable numbers of fans and/or alums from both institutions either reside in the area or would be willing to travel to Denver to attend
