Crickets on needed opponent

Hasn't ACC, SEC, and Big 12 except for us nailed down their schedule? Who's left to play if Big 10 and PAC 12 rouge teams are forbiden to schedule us?

we will probably only play the conf schedule

since Akron and Citadel both look like no-gos. Most leagues if they are playing aren't starting until later I think. To bring in another team at this point that doesn't have the same protocols as the ACC would be silly IMO.

But if all other teams play 10 and we only play 9 imagine the cry to disqualify us from post season. We better play 10 but we need an opponent.

We're playing 10 just like the SEC. The game in question would be our 11th game. I don't think we'll get punished if we end up not scheduling an additional opponent to blowout.

position and just not have it count as a conference game?

Like NC State, Louisville, UNC, etc

we'd have to get a waiver - has to be played in state- but

tell me which one of them would show up for a rd. game in DV by choice? and I think they all have opponents already unless someone canceled/scratched their season.

The ACC is the only P5 even allowing an 11th game at this point- the other 2 are 10 games total, so who cares if we play it- it's not going to impact our road to the playoff if there is one


Thanks. I didn't realize we had the option.

As soon as other conferences said no OOC, it has made 0 sense to keep one. Big 12 is playing 9 games. SEC is playing 10 games. There is no benefit for us to play an 11th game. Hopefully we leave it open.


Only benefit would be Clemson merchants

I guess, even with limited attendance.

I have no inside info but my hope is they are holding out to see if they can make something happen with scheduling that team in the center of the state.
