home and home with Oklahoma, 2016, 2017

They are trying to build out of conference matchups. Now they need to stop with the Akrons and Toledos for a while.
USC is next two years. They've also played Texas, Washington State in '02 (When WSU was ranked #7), they played Washington and NC State in 03, NCST and Oklahoma St in 04, and they have a few other major ooc games in the works. They do not shy away from big games early in the season.
And, as I've clearly stated before, they play in-state teams to keep the revenue in Ohio. Miami and especially Cincinnati are certainly not creampuffs. That won't change, nor should it.
