That Temple home/home is galling without a P5 game on the schedule.

They can still schedule a marquee P5 home and home. In 2026 we would play at home and 2027 we would play on the road to counter balance. I'm not too concerned.

Not true. They must have seven home games every year for budget reasons. In 2027, they will only have four conference home games. So they can't home-and-home with a P5 since they can't go on the road in 2027.

Good point, I stand corrected. Hopefully Sandy can get creative and make it work with P5 home games in 2026 and 2027 and P5 away games in 2028 and 2030 or something to that affect.  I know there were talks about Texas in 2030, which may complicate things. We will see how it shakes out.

I'm a fan of these games. I'd rather play Villanova and Delaware than the usual MACrifice, which these games essentially take the place of. I know a lot of Penn State fans from Eastern PA have ties to those schools so it will be cool to play them. Similarly, I like playing at the Linc against Temple every now and then. It's easier than hauling 3.5 hours to State College for a nooner.
