nonconference games:

    The debut season for Missouri coach Eli Drinkwitz got much more challenging when the Southeastern Conference adjusted its schedules this summer. Missouri’s original cross-division opponents in its SEC schedule were Arkansas and Mississippi State, which both finished below .500 last season. But when the SEC switched to a format in which each team will play 10 conference games, Missouri discovered it also would be hosting No. 3 Alabama and visiting defending national champion LSU. If that weren’t tough enough, the Alabama game also happen to mark the first game at Missouri for Drinkwitz, who spent last season at Appalachian State. “It’s a great challenge for our players and our team,” Drinkwitz said. “We accept that challenge. I chose to coach...

Miami athletic director Blake James called the schedule “aspirational” as concerns about COVID-19 have put major college football in the fall in peril. For now, though, conferences are...

    The Gophers football program is optimistic — amid the coronavirus pandemic — that it will be able to play Florida Atlantic at TCF Bank Stadium on Sept. 3. If that pans out, it will be an expensive season opener. The University of Minnesota will pay the smaller Conference USA opponent $1.2 million to play that game. The U also will pay Tennessee Tech $450,000 to visit Minneapolis on Sept. 12, and Brigham Young will receive $300,000 to travel for their road game in Minneapolis on Sept. 26, according to contracts the Pioneer Press received via data records requests this week. The $1.95 million total cost for these three nonconference games comes as the Gophers are estimating a more than...
