After a seemingly endless wait, UMass finally has its first FBS schedule.
The MAC made the announcement today.
Here is what the Minutemen are looking at:
Aug. 30: at Connecticut
Sep. 8: Indiana
Sep. 15: at Michigan
Sep. 22: at Miami (Ohio)
Sep. 29: Ohio
Oct. 6: at Western Michigan
Oct. 20: Bowling Green
Oct. 27: at Vanderbilt
Nov. 3: at Northern Illinois
Nov. 10: at Akron
Nov. 17: Buffalo
Nov. 23: *Central Michigan, (ESPNU/ESPN3)
At first glance, I have one thought: That is a lot of frequent flier miles.
The Minutemen have seven road games and five at Gillette. Also, almost every away game is against a powerful opponent.
No one said this was going to be easy, but it feels good to finally know what UMass is up against.
