Explain the Reasoning

Can someone explain the reasoning behind the BIG10 & PAC-12 moving to conference-only games? Why can an in-conference team go play at Ohio State, but can't play Bowling Green? Why can they play Michigan but not Central Michigan? Northern Illinois? Ball State? UCLA can go play Utah but can't play San...

Re: Anybody else love the neutral court?

I am fine with neutral court games when teams on different sides of the country meet. Playing a neutral site game for an in-state game is dumb.

Assuming we lose to Boise State and beat New Mexico, we need to beat either Wyoming or Fresno, which I think are both toss-ups.

The Biggest Detriment

The biggest detriment to this program is the inability to win big games. I'm not talking about bowl games where we play an average G5 team, but how we never beat our scheduled P5 opponents, beat Boise once in a blue moon, etc.

Would you all consider this the biggest game in program history to-date? Excluding games that we won/lost that turned out to be turning points after the fact (Utah 2012, BYU 2014, BSU 2015, etc.).
