BC, TCU, Baylor, Northwestern - honest question, can you tell me why you’ve pinpointed these four in particular?
And then, can you tell me the last time each of them scheduled a toss-up in Non-con against a non-P5?
And do you think Baylor remembers LOSING to LU? (How long was it until Michigan scheduled App State again?)
Happy to. Private schools. Some with religious affiliation. As for “last time” it has no relevance since moving forward middle tier P5 teams will be analyzing their non con just like everyone else to make sure it is strong enough for a potential 12 team playoff berth. Many 2-3 loss P5 teams will be in the playoff mix IF their remaining SOS is strong enough. ( by the way JK, you have referenced P5 teams being more skittish of playing good G5 teams - I think it is the opposite - LU will have a harder time getting top G5 teams to play us ( outside of AAC ) because the Boise and App St teams of the world will think they also have a shot at 12th spot with an undefeated season as a 2nd G5 team in).
Not sure any of these teams consider LU as a “toss up”on the road, they will all be 1 off or 2 for 1.
Baylor at Texas St 21 ( better roster than LU by 247 )
Baylor BYU 2022 ( counts as P5).
Baylor Air Force ( home and home )
I doubt Baylor remembers losing to LU any more than the other 10 schools they lost to that year...and we do have strong ties there still ( yes even after the Hearing Ian got called back for - Ian is well respected there).
SMU - home and home 21,22,23,24
( interesting they have some holes to fill on their near term schedules )
Cinci - home and home
