ok, they are playing Boise St and have a road trip to the big 10. How many Sec teams would do that? none!

pretty much standard practice to have a tune up game in the schedule, UW was one of the last hold outs not to schedule div1aa. just a frame of reference the SEC teams play 8 conference games and 4 non-conf which in general is 1 or 2 div1aa, along with the louisiana monroes and maybe one competitive game.

standard practice isn’t necessarily the best practice. USC and Notre Dame don’t stoop this low. Idaho State is a very weak 1AA. Couldn’t you get Montana or somebody that even would pretend to be competitive.

Maybe Montana doesn’t want to play anyone as weak as Washington.

Most likely though, UW didn’t have that money options for a team that would agree to play a road game on that date.
