    Granted, fall 2019, aPVm hosts Nicholls and sTu hosts HBU.
    Why schedule schools who do not travel well.

    A majority of FCS doesn’t travel well. There are only a select few who do.

    Some of us don't even "home" well.

    The P5 schools that are really opposed to this idea are the entire bottom half of P5 football schools. They'll lose even more games then they already do. It'll impact fan and donor perception and the stands will be empty when Rutgers and Minnesota, Kansas and Iowa State, Boston College, etc. start regularly winning maybe 1 to 3 game a season.

    Well other than the $$ that the athletic departments would be missing out on, which is the real reason they're scheduled to begin with. Lets be honest.

    You're right though. If fewer FCS play P5 or FBS, their losses won't be "excused" like they currently are, and will actually impact their playoff resume.

    It looks like the NEC is building an 'unofficial' FBS scheduling alliance with the Mid American Conference (MAC).

    I would also note that the NEC's first ever FBS game was CCSU at Western Michigan (2009); and Duquesne played at Buffalo (2014) for their first FBS opponent.
