Big Ten won't be playing FCS teams

Big Ten won't be playing FCS teams

Quote:
Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez says Big Ten officials recently agreed to stop scheduling nonconference games against FCS programs.

"The nonconference schedule in our league is ridiculous," Alvarez said on WIBA-AM in Madison, Wis. "It's not very appealing ...

"So we've made an agreement that our future games will all be Division I schools. It will not be FCS schools."

Alvarez didn't say when the agreement would take effect but the likely starting point may be the 2014 season, when Maryland and Rutgers join the Big Ten.

Wisconsin has one FCS team on its schedule in 2013, a Sept. 7 meeting against Tennessee Tech.


Oh noes, we suck again!!!

I'm just glad I can stop sweating bullets over the possibility of losing to UNI every year. Ha

From a $$ vantage-point, not really. Minny pulls in more gate receipts from playing local teams like NDSU and South Dakota St. than we would against, say, UNLV. But it's for the better of the conference as a whole, so I'm totally OK with it.

Wait App State isn't FSC anymore, I thought? Regardless, yes this is good news.
