2008 UMass Football Schedule

Few schools beat UMass in playing "I've got a secret' with their future football schedules. In 2008, the NCAA is allowing one of those 12 game years.

However, you can paste together UMass' 2008 season by checking the published dates from other schools. Travis Liles has done that here . Note that this is unofficial!

Remember this is probably has a number of errors. It's one man's call.
  • 08/30 @ Texas Tech
  • 09/06 @ Holy Cross
  • 09/13 Nothing scheduled yet (note that one of the open dates will be a bye week)
  • 09/20 Nothing Scheduled yet
  • 09/27 Nothing scheduled yet
  • 10/04 Delaware
  • 10/11 Hofstra
  • 10/18 @ Northeastern
  • 10/25 Maine
  • 11/01 Rhode Island
  • 11/08 Richmond
  • 11/15 @JMU
  • 11/22 @UNH
Several posters on an Albany message board stated that Albany will be playing @ UMass in 2008. If that's true, then we have one open date to schedule to reach twelve teams. That will be a home game.

Just so you know, I don't believe we can trust what Travis Liles put together. When you look at his page (using the link you gave) he has us playing UNH on the Nov. 22nd, but when you look at UNH's schedule it says they are playing us on Nov. 8th. What is funny, is that our schedules are right next to each other, so I do not know how he missed that.

I'm aware that this is shaky. I thought it would interest some people.

Coach Brown has stated that he is not interested in playing a 2'nd I-A opponent and that he is not interested in a 12 game schedule due to the number of playoff games we expect to play. I don't know if he has changed his position, nor do I know how much additional revenue we could expect to earn by playing an additional game.

This will help I-AA and the teams who don't participate in the playoff games. It will provide the players with more exposure and help recruiting. I don't think it will help us.

Just to clarify my schedules page. There is a color coding at the top of each page. Light blue signifies confirmed games and unknown dates. The orange are confirmed opponents and dates while the yellow represents likely dates. Its too early to attempt to figure out where the games fall into place until a few more schedules from the CAA are officially announced.

Sorry for the confusion.
