/> •Texas: Florida Atlantic (8-5), at UTEP (4-8), Arkansas (8-5), Rice (3-9)

Renewed Hogs rivalry solid, but the rest is a mess.

•Texas A&M: Arkansas State (5-7), at New Mexico (9-4), Miami (5-7), Army (3-9)

Canes offer only point of interest, unless cadets draw their swords when Army arrives.

The Ugly
•Iowa State: *South Dakota State (7-4), Kent State (3-9), at Iowa (6-6), at UNLV (2-10)

Rivalry game with Hawkeyes can't save this sked.

•Kansas State: North Texas (2-10), *Montana State (6-5), at Louisville (6-6), Louisiana-Lafayette (3-9)

'Cats fled from home game with Fresno State

•Missouri: #Illinois (9-4), *Southeast Missouri State (3-8), Nevada (6-7), Buffalo (5-7)

Good opener, then name-the-mascot stretch.

•Texas Tech: *Eastern Washington (9-4), at Nevada (6-7), SMU (1-11), *Massachusetts (10-3)

Not one, but two I-AA foes. Shame, shame.

* Division I-AA opponent
