Auburn fans will see Louisiana Tech and Ball State at Jordan Hare Stadium in September and Furman in November.

Alabama fans will see Florida International and North Texas at Bryant Denny Stadium in September and Tennessee-Chattanooga in November.

Fans from both schools would likely prefer to see Troy, Alabama State, or UAB instead.

A game or two with opponents from Alabama would not just fuel more fan interest but keep the money in state.

Why pay hundreds of thousands of dollars to smaller name opponents from Louisiana, Ohio, South Carolina, Florida, Texas or Tennessee?

Pay those same sums of money here!

Higher education cuts experienced this year will be worse in the coming years.  Our state schools would welcome the needed revenue.

Ideally, all non conference opponents would be name teams from power conferences but that isn't feasible or realistic.

Playing a few non conference games with in state opponents should be both feasible and realistic and fan friendly!      

Let's do it!
