    Looks like Iowa/UNI contracted for 2014 and if true that will be the last ever meeting.

    Probably because B10 strength of schedule stinks and they want to make sure they get a team in the 4 team playoff beginning 2014

    They'll still be playing big 10 teams for 9 or 10 games, so they shouldnt have to worry about their SOS getting too hard.

    Re: B10 done scheduling FCS?

    Have got to think UNI will be making the move up to FBS in the next few years, as they find it tougher to schedule programs currently in FBS to make some money to help fund the program.

    There is no way in hell they will be in the FBS anytime in the foreseeable future.

    Can UNI afford to make that move? That's 22 more scholarships they'd have to pay for. Not to mention the increased travel costs. And I don't see any mid major conference getting a huge TV contract.

    They have actually raised the idea, so its not inconceivable.

    They'd suddenly be a lot more marketable to FBS opponents (so could fetch a larger paycheck), as any team paying them to show up could now schedule an almost-FCS team in UNI and another FCS team.

    Playing some bottom feeder MAC team isnt going to help there SOS much.
