So out-of-conference we play Sakerlina in Death Valley in even years & in Columbia in odd years. We need to schedule 1 other high profile game so we have 5 home/5 away vs BCS competition. We finish the schedule with cupcakes at home vs 1 of our states 6-7 FCS teams & someone from the MAC or Sun Belt. 7 home games. The ACC has Notre Dame scheduled every 3 years starting in 15.
Here's a list of our BCS out-of-conference opponents since Tommy Bowden & how they finished:

16. ? My pick is @ Tennessee. Or vs Ole Miss (Georgia Dome).

18. @ Notre Dame
19. ? My pick is Georgia.
20. ? My pick is @ Georgia
21. Notre Dame
Terry Don Phillips had scheduled 15 Ole Miss, 16 @ Ole Miss & 19 Oklahoma State, 20 @ Oklahoma State but Clemson had to cancel both series because of the short-lived 9 game ACC schedule.
Personally, I want Tennessee. We haven't played them since 03 Peach Bowl. We upset the 10-win #6 ranked Vols that game. They play Virginia Tech in Bristol in 16 so they need a home game & we can play them there. Then they can come to Death Valley in 17.
Ole Miss has a full schedule in 17 but we can play them in Atlanta to kickoff the season in 16.
I want Georgia again in 19 & 20. Renew the rivalry twice every 6 years.
I hope D-Rad is working hard at this. I think it'll be difficult. Big XII, B1G & PAC have 9 game scheduled & SEC is too chicken shit to play BCS teams out of conference (see Tennessee vs Oregon). They will schedule 3-4 cupcakes & save their losses for conference games to make it look like they're so deep. The only time you really see an OOC game for them is when am Alabama plays a mid-tier BCS team. #SEC speed
