    Non Conference Schedule games/Vegas Info

    Looks like we will be playing the Campbell Camels and North Carolina A&T in Ames in the week prior to the games in Vegas. Then we play Cincy on Friday the 23rd and then either UNLV/Oregon on Saturday the 24th. Both of these games on UNLV's home court. Hopefully we don't pull an Iowa and get smoked by Campbell! Ha.

    So out of our 12-13 non conference games we know so far we are playing: Campbell, North Carolina A&T, Cincy, Oregon/UNLV, Drake, Iowa, and BYU. So that's 7 games filled already. Does anyone have any information on who else we might play?

    So the schedule will look something like this:

    Nov 3-Exhibitition
    Nov 10-Empty
    Nov 13-Empty
    Nov 16-Empty
    Nov 18-Campbell-home
    Nov 20-North Carolina A&T-home
    Nov 23-Cincy-@ Vegas
    Nov 24-UNLV/Oregon-@ Vegas
    Dec 1-BYU-home
    Dec 4-Empty
    Dec 7-@ Iowa
    Dec 15-Drake-@ WF Arena
    Dec 19-@ UMKC
    Dec 29-Empty

    Then conference starts on like Jan 2nd

    Re: Thanksgiving tournament in Vegas information

    Do we get a return Michigan game this year? Or is that still a few years off?

    That is correct. We don't play Michigan until 2013-14. There are rumors we could be playing Ball State at home. Nothing confirmed or get excited about..

    Too bad we don't play them this year. Would be a great chance to pick up a win against a top 10-15 opponent.

    Yeah playing UNLV at home might be a disaster for us since they are loaded. But on the other hand i wouldn't mind having a chance to beat a very quality team.

    Good opportunities for resume building wins against Cincinnati and either UNLV or Oregon.

    Heard it from a source close the athletic department (credible), again the schedule is not completed, and there are other mid-major schools we could play. The major BCS schools have already been discussed or tossed around..BYU, Cincinatti, possibly Oregon/UNLV are confirmed.

    Other schools mentioned/rumored; Bradley, Eastern Michigan, and Western Illinois playing in Ames.

    Re: Thanksgiving tournament in Vegas information

    it's confirmed that we will be playing BYU in Ames on Saturday December 1st for the 2012-13 season. Then it is also confirmed that we will be playing at BYU for the 2013-14 season. We will also be playing Michigan in Ames for the 2013-14 season not the 2012-13 season. I love that we are scheduling good teams!

    Re: Thanksgiving tournament in Vegas information

    So far our non conference home games are terrible. Hopefully we add another good team to play at home so that we have more than one game in Hilton against BYU to look forward to until conference play starts in January.

    No Iowa, UNI, or Drake at home this year. Has to be the first time in a really long time that this has happened. The Big 4 classic is just dumb.

    Hopefully they can sneak over an Akron/Kent State type thing. Throw in Ohio and those are some upper tier MAC schools (in Basketball).

    Yes I am a homer before anyone asks.


    My teams: (as of 6/15/14)
    Cleveland Browns: 4-12 - .250
    Cleveland Indians: 34-35 - .493
    Cleveland Cavs: 33-49 - .402
    Iowa State Cyclones (FB): 3-9 - .250
    Iowa State Cyclones (BB): 28-8 - .778
