Multiple Schools Schedule Home-and-Home Series Last 2 Days

If you’re one of those people that pay attention to what’s happening around the magnificent world of future college football scheduling, then these last two days have been plenty eventful.

On Monday, Mississippi State and UMass scheduled a three-game series: one in 2016 and ’17, with the final coming in 2020. And if you were wondering if the Bulldogs were going to be taking a trip to Gillette Stadium, well, guess what? They will be—and it’s coming next year, when the Minutemen leave the MAC and become an Independent.

UMass now opens up its 2016 late with three matchups against Power Five opponents in this first four games: at Florida, at Boston College, and vs. Mississippi State. It also has a late-season date on the road with BYU.

Later that night, Texas Tech confirmed that it has finalized a home-and-home series with UTEP in 2019-20, hosting the first game in Lubbock. The Red Raiders won this contest 30-26 last season and holds a 13-6-1 record here.

Finally, SMU and Arkansas State inked a deal that will display a home-and-home later on this decade, starting with a meeting in Dallas in September of 2017 and then a rematch in Jonesboro in August of 2019.

I look forward to be nearing my 30s when the majority of these games actually take place.
