Looks like Minnesota and Purdue get the toughest crossover schedules.
No Ohio St, no Michigan, Penn St at home? Can’t beat that.
Apparently you can only play a Week 0 game if its an international game, if one of the teams plays in Hawaii that year, or if you are playing an FCS team I think. So although we maybe would love to embrace being a Week 0 team, that really wasn't an option.No week 0 game?
Absolutely agree. Putting a resurgent team like Kansas on our schedule is so Illinois. Then, to stack the deck against us even more, the game is at their place.Wow, couldn't get a better draw than this.
Only issue I have is with Kansas, and this is classic Illinois football scheduling voodoo. They've been absolute garbage but now seem to be finding their footing. I believe Robert just talked about this in an article recently, but we have the great fortune of scheduling these soft non-con opponents only for them to get red hot during the season they play us.
Classic scheduling luck for sure but seeing as Leipold is a very hot commodity we might be getting them with a new coach.Absolutely agree. Putting a resurgent team like Kansas on our schedule is so Illinois. Then, to stack the deck against us even more, the game is at their place.
So, nobody gets a week zero game and all get one bye week. The pressure will be to stay healthy with that bye week three quarters into the season.
