    I'm told XU should have its final two non-conference games ironed out within the next week.”

    And

    “It’s also likely that the Big East will reveal the schedule in sections. So we might get the December slate and they’ll see how that plays out and then move to January. Which makes sense in the event we have Covid postponements”
    The MAAC has an open weekend in late February for any potential makeup games - then again, it's easier for them to do that since their games are primarily in the Friday-Monday window. Could be harder for the Big East since it's spread out for TV purposes.

    Yes. Here is an article that states the changes for games and practices. With new limits, this is one of the reasons X pulled out of the Orlando and scheduled our own MTE. Of course, covid being the other. As with other programs, gotta pad the schedule somehow with that limit.

    That’s interesting. Guess it would be nice to have scheduling options for all because it could be a mess trying to reschedule at times. We are seeing that now with the NFL.
