This recent article out of Richmond sparked us to update our perpetual following of NC State’s Out of Conference football scheduling.
A few quick bullets:
* The question marks beside Tennessee 2013 is a function of our not knowing if the scheduling of the 2012 game in Atlanta serves to consolidate and replace the two games with Tennessee (2012, 2013) that were already scheduled.
* Damn we have some tough teams on the future schedule when you consider the emergence of Cincinnati under the leadership of Brian Kelly.
* Not sure if I see State ever actually traveling to South Alabama in 2015.
