Nice article from Andy Katz on ESPN regarding Oregon's difficulty getting marquee matchups and national TV games next season. The article provides some insight into the non-conference schedule next season, and early returns aren't good:
So, thus far, our BEST games are at Kansas State (decent, not great) and at Nebraska. We go to Oakland for Malik and Tajuan's homecoming games, get Pepperdine and LBSU at home. And beyond that, we have no idea. Even who we're playing in the Pape Jam remains a mystery.
Expect two of those dates to be filled by Portland and Portland State, who we play perennially. However, it has to be concerning that we don't have any non-conference games against NCAA tournament teams. And no marquee opponent (again) for the Pape Jam. Lets hope something falls into place, because next year's nonconference schedule is looking even worse than this year's was.
