Now that the Big East released its football schedule, it also fills out a sizeable portion of the ESPN late week schedule of games. But there's several openings out there to fill. My thoughts on filling them.
Thursday (confirmed in bold)
8/30 - South Carolina at Vanderbilt
9/6 - Pittsburgh at Cincinnati
9/13 - Rutgers at USF is listed with a "subject to date change" for this week. TCU-Kansas is also sitting out there.
9/20 - Maryland at WVU & Virginia at TCU are in play. A dark horse, depending on what they do with Rutgers-USF could be the Rutgers at Arkansas game
9/27 - Stanford at Washington (not confirmed for ESPN, but set for this date)
10/4 - USC at Utah (not confirmed for ESPN, but set for this date)
10/10 - Arizona St. at Colorado (not confirmed for ESPN, but set for this date)
10/17 - Oregon at Arizona St. (not confirmed for ESPN, but set for this date)
10/24 - Clemson at Wake Forest
11/1 - Virginia Tech at Miami (FL)
11/8 - Florida St. at Virginia Tech
11/15 - North Carolina at Virginia
11/22 - Long rumored to be TCU at Texas
11/29 - Louisville at Rutgers
Friday (confirmed in bold)
8/31 - Boise St. at Michigan St.
9/7 - Utah at Utah St. on ESPN2. NASCAR on ESPN
9/14 - See the Thursday list. One of those two could end up here
9/21 - See the Thursday list, plus one of the three MAC non-conference games, but don't expect Rutgers at Arkansas on a Friday
9/28 - Could see Hawai'i at BYU end up here
10/5 - Pittsburgh at Syracuse
10/12 - Could see Oregon St. at BYU end up here
10/19 - Syracuse at Connecticut
10/26 - Louisville at Cincinnati
11/2 - Washington at California (not confirmed for ESPN/2, but set for this date)
11/9 - Pittsburgh at Connecticut
11/16 - Feels like a Big 12 game
11/23 - Either Syracuse at Temple OR Rutgers at Pittsburgh
11/30 - Likely the MAC Championship
Any ideas or rumors?
