Post Home and Home signed with Eastern Michigan
Looks like we signed a two-game deal with EMU.

2021 in Ypsilanti and 2025 in San Marcos.

Schedule is starting to lose it's balance and I'm not liking how 2021 is shaping up. As of now, it looks like we're only planning 5 home games. 4 Sun Belt games and 1 FCS game would be an awful home schedule. 2020 and 2022 both look like we could have great schedules with 7 home games and that's great, but I'm not ok with having such a bad home schedule even for just one year in 2021 despite how exciting 2020 and 2022 look. Hopefully we can make some adjustments to balance it out.

2020:
SMU
UTSA
Ohio
@ New Mexico State

2021:
@ UTSA
@ Baylor
@ Eastern Michigan
TBA

2022:
UTSA
Baylor
Houston Baptist
TBA

Eastern Michigan will also play a home-and-home series with the Texas State Bobcats. EMU will host Texas State on Sept. 25, 2021 before traveling to face the Bobcats at Bobcat Stadium in San Marcos on Aug. 30, 2025.

The 2021 contest will be the first-ever meeting between Eastern Michigan and Texas State on the gridiron.

Yea I made a similar comment on the sunbelt board. Probably our least exciting move we've made scheduling wise. If we have an 8 game home schedule in 22 I'd be alright with it.

I figured a 5 home game season would happen at some point with the Baylor 2 for 1. I am glad this isn't a trend like it has been for schools like Georgia Southern or ULM.

At this point, that schedule at least gives us a chance to be competitive at the current level of football we are playing.

Looks like the 3-game series with Baylor has either been adjusted to balance the schedule or was initially reported incorrectly and has been corrected. Schedule looks like it balanced back out. Looks like the first game of the Baylor series will be in San Marcos.

2020:
SMU
UTSA
Ohio
@ New Mexico State

2021:
Baylor
@ UTSA
@ Eastern Michigan
TBA (likely FCS)

2022:
UTSA
@ Baylor
Houston Baptist
TBA
