    Thanks for the article, enjoyed reading up on these new opponents. One correction, however, Central Missouri is traveling to Davenport this year and will have the road game.
    Got it fixed, thanks for reading!

    Northeastern added West Alabama in week 11 for home and home 25 and 26.

    That's four games on 26 already set and nine in 25.

    Six home games as an independentamd couple of winnable games. I'll take it . The 25 schedule looks pretty good

    Updated now that Missouri Southern, Fort Hays, Central Oklahoma, and Central Missouri have updated/released schedules and I've had time to check. Schedule is complete.

    NE'stern has released their schedule. Here it is for kicks n giggles

    Week0: Missouri Western
    Week1: @Central Missouri
    Week2: Bye
    Week3: @Fort Hays
    Week4: Missouri Southern
    Week5: @Emporia
    Week6: Lincoln (MO)
    Week7: UCO
    Week8: Lincoln (CA)
    Week9: @NW Missouri
    Week10: @ Mississippi College
    Week11: Washburn

    NE'Stern was able to get out of UNK and Pitt State. Pitt State has an open week on Sept 28, while UNK filled that spot with Chadron Week 0 and took a Week2 bye. Interesting to see what the ChickenHawks have up their sleeve for '25, have 7 games scheduled (8th @Lincoln TBD) 4 GLVC opponents, Saginaw St, Mississippi College, Lincoln CA, and a road trip to D1 North Alabama. How much did Josh Looney pay for that one?
    Also interesting no return trip with Saginaw in ‘26.

    Well there are two ways to interpret that. Weeks 0-2 are open with a bye in one of those weeks. Or they may be planning an 8 game conference model and there may be traction to the UCM rumors. Unless they add a 12th game.
    Sounds like weeks 0-2 are open for 25 and 26.

    Same article from News Channel Nebraska also mentioned discussion of football scheduling and possible conference expansion.

    "Bauer says the conference is discussing two different scheduling models. One of them establishes three open weeks at the start of the season. The open slots allow for non-conference games. One of the open weeks could be traded for a bye later in the year."

    Looking beyond 2024, UNK's AD was on the radio today and teased that they were working on home and homes with Chadron and Wayne State for 25 and 26. On the one hand, this will be beneficial by generating alumni/fan interest and limiting travel. On the other hand, if this is something they renew every season, UNK will essentially be putting itself into a silo again. I'm all for in-state rivalry games, but I also enjoy seeing some new teams once in a while.

    I’m assuming part of their willingness was that prior to scheduling UCM Davenport only had 3 home games and I know they were desperate to get a 4th, and it would appear options were limited.
    Additionally it helps with Davenports chances of getting into the playoffs with the GVSU/Ferris taking two spots. If DU gets a win over UCM those chances go up
