  • Tarleton 2020 Football Schedule

    Looks like Tarleton State, despite making the move to D1 in 2020, will still be facing off with quite a few LSC and other D2 opponents in the upcoming season. I haven't seen this publicly posted anywhere but assume it's "official":

    9/05 @Sam Houston State
    9/12 @Murray State
    9/19 vs. UT-Permian Basin
    9/26 @Kennesaw State
    10/03 vs. Eastern N.M.
    10/10 OPEN
    10/17 vs. A&M-Kingsville (Homecoming)
    10/24 vs. Midwestern State
    10/31 vs. Western Oregon
    11/07 vs. Missouri State
    11/14 @South Dakota State
    11/21 OPEN
    11/28 vs. Dixie State

    Only public posting of schedule I've seen is here, and it doesn't entirely match games listed above:

    I clicked the link, but I couldn’t see all of the games.. All I could see was Murray, TAMUK, WO, SDSU, and Dixie.

    Expect a pretty scrappy schedule for the transition years.

    Edit: Nevermind, I re-read your post. Where did you see the other games?

        In Tarleton's defense, look at the non-conference games Houston Baptist and Incarnate Word had their first FCS seasons. Granted, they had a full SLC schedule from transition year 1, but they had real knockouts like McMurray, Langston, and Texas College. (HBU actually played that game at Texas College.)

        TSU's scheduling struggles won't be limited to the transition years either. Although having full FCS status will help, it'll be tough to put together an 11 game schedule year-in and year-out without a conference affiliation to fill those spots. I've heard that Lonn already has TCU, TAMU, and Tech? (I think) lined up for future years. They'll need those guarantee games to help cover travel costs, but I've also heard that Sharp is footing the bill for travel costs for the foreseeable future.

          What have Texan fans heard about a long range plan for the WAC as far as football goes? There is Tarleton and there is Dixie so you would need four more schools (I think that the FCS minimum for a conference is six). Any rumors blowing around in the wind?

            Tons of speculation and rumors in one of the other threads.. Couldn't find it at first glance, but maybe someone can link to it. Apparently the Big 12, PAC 12, and Big 10 are disbanding and everyone is joining the WAC along with TSU and Dixie... Something like that.

            Edit: Here's the thread: https://www.d2football.com/forum/for...arleton-to-wac.. You'll have to do some digging, but there's lots of speculation in there.

              If this schedule is accurate, then it’s the type of schedule I would expect and hope for. To me, a full 11 game FCS schedule would be foolish. We are going from D2 with 36 scholarships to playing teams with 63 and bigger stronger athletes. My guess is we will be somewhere in the low 40’s in terms of numbers. Physically we would get beaten up playing 11 FCS teams which are bigger, stronger and deeper than us. As our athletes and depth improves, we can then expand the schedule.

                Curious if Tarleton is having to pay all these D2 schools to play them like a normal FCS game? Could be a crazy-expensive season

                  If you dig around a little, I saw something saying we are paying most if not all of the D2 schools $25,000 to play us. We did some kind of switch with Dixie and S.D. State so we are getting $200,000 to play S.D. Therefore it looks like the season may be a wash moneywise.

                    ah ok, makes sense. One of those open dates should be filled fairly soon, if what I've heard is correct.

                      Tarleton will definitely have to eat crap sandwiches for the next few years during transition. This was ACU's 2013 football schedule their first transition year in FCS football.

                          Hopefully a year or two down the road as we build up talent and depth. My understanding is TCU is scheduled for 2021 and aTm in 2025.
