  • Fewest Non Conference Road games since 2000

    And this is WITH only playing 8 conference games.

    That, and there's a team of cowards that wears purple in the mix as well, not a surprise.

    1. Alabama - 6
    1. Arkansas - 6
    3. Auburn - 7
    4. LSU - 8
    5. Tennessee - 10

      I count UW at 15 for "true" road games. 16 if you count playing Illinois in Soldier Field. 17 if you count playing Auburn in Atlanta.

        You should call it the "Duke and Syracuse" award.

          I count 15 road games for VT and probably a half dozen "neutral site" games

            I think I can remember all the Auburn games if that says something. Syracuse, USC, Clemson, WVU, and K State....missing one.

                    I want to see more just completely random mid major road trips. Like when Texas went to Wyoming. I wonder why we don't see those very often.

                      If it makes you all feel better our home schedule this season is lousy. The university should apologize to season ticket holders.

                        5 of these programs won a national title in that time frame...4 of them have won 2 or more. They account for 11 National Titles since 2000...they also account for having at least one of the teams being in the MNC since 2002 (with 2005 being the lone exception). Bama of course accounts for the majority of all those numbers, and they have played the fewest OOC road games...clearly they knew what they were doing.

                          LSU has also played in 6 neutral site games...out of state.

                          And out of the 8 true road games and 6 neutral site games.... LSU is 12-2 in those games.

                          LSU's scheduling has really stepped up of late. The early 00s though were garbage.

                            Tennessee is on that list thanks to Mike Hamilton. He's the one that decided to begin scheduling an FCS school every year.
