AUTUmike 79 Posted June 30, 2015 Share Posted June 30, 2015 With the announcement that Auburn will open the 2019 season against Oregon, that leaves 2018 as the only remaining slot that will realistically be filled with a top-notch OOC game. The following schools are the only options left for that slot. This list takes into account current scheduling vacancies, as well as scheduling tendencies (like the fact that schools like Louisville and South Carolina often play their in-state OOC rival, as well as another FBS opponent). With that in mind, here are the options for what is most likely going to be another neutral-site game: Boston College, Georgia Tech, Louisville, Virginia, Kansas, Texas Tech, Illinois, Iowa, Michigan, Michigan State, Purdue, Wisconsin, and Stanford IMO, Kansas and Purdue are the only schools on this list that might consider traveling to play @Auburn without getting a return trip. Otherwise, I see all of these other options as neutral-site games. Given that we have games with Oregon and Cal on the books, that may make Stanford less likely. I also don't think there is anything particularly attractive about a neutral-site game with Boston College, Illinois, or Virginia (though they could occur in Atlanta as the Chic-fil-a game). With all that being said--and much speculation--I'm going to guess we end up with either Georgia Tech or a solid Big 10 school like Wisconsin or one of the Michigan schools.
