More home-&-home series guys! Enough of the neutral sites to open season. CFB fans want to see their team play big time opponents in their teams stadium and not travel hours and hundred of miles away.
AL played PSU for 10 years straight with 5 in state games each. AL’s played Wash, Nebk, ND, USC all in home-&-home games since the 70’s. It was great for both fan bases.
