Pony Express Pickers - Dickerson AND James.

Unfortunately - Boise St and BYU also play that weekend - Methodists would host CGD, Can/would Mormons?

Looking ahead to Temple game there are really no other big Top 25 games that day -- best one I see is ORE @ WAS.




Michigan @ Penn State and Arizona State at Utah are also that day


Michigan is one of ESPN's favorites; however, ESPN hates Penn State and seldom gives them any attention. Interesting decision.

Penn State has been on Gameday 5 times (twice hosting) since the start of the 2016 season. ESPN can't possibly hate them that much :lol:

It would be. But kids don’t know who they are.

I don't see an interest by ESPN to do Temple...but Memphis, now we're talking.

Bingo.

Our chance to host left when Temple lost to Buffalo. Two undefeated's at Ford? That could work. But not now, Temple is damaged goods.

But we have a chance to have possibly to top-20 ranked teams at Memphis. Could happen there.

If Gameday does an SMU game, I could see it being Temple. The story line will be around SMU, so I could see them wanting to do an SMU home game. Memphis is probably more likely, but I wouldn't be completely shocked if we hosted for Temple.

The Temple/Memphis game will be a huge factor - if Temple wins, they will have 2 wins over #21 (Maryland) and #23 (Memphis) and 2 P5 programs (Maryland and Georgia Tech). Buffalo loss would be insignificant.

When was the last one? Did it happen in 2011 when we were 3-1 going to face undefeated TCU?

Just looked it up, it was that season but against #10/#11 Houston when we were 6-4 by then after a high water mark of 5-1 and RV.

If Temple beats Memphis then I think it's back on the table. If Memphis wins then I agree that the highest probability would have us pitted against Memphis even if we hypothetically lose to Temple. Our only hope is the whole "#21 Mustangs against 4-1 Temple where the Mustangs have been ranked back to back for the first time since the DP." I guess they can still do that with Memphis. Who knows. Smart by the schedulers to put homecoming with ECU as that would have been a challenge to get people there. I'm really hoping, again being way too optimistic, that by the time Tulane comes around that they're in the Top 25 to get enough fans to show up for the last home game.

According to Thad's twitter account, it looks like they're going to Perv st.

Update:

It's Perv St vs Useless Michigan yay....

I would think Pedophile State would have a higher rating. After all, who can resist raping little boys in a team locker room?

I refuse to watch a univeristy that protected a Pedophile and makes a profit off it.
