The 2024 calendar allows FCS teams to play 12 regular season games.  Officially, Drake still has Aug 31 (week 0) and Sep 14th open. My doggie nose tells me that one of the Missouri D-II schools may show up on the schedule, but I'm not certain.  

Should Drake play four games outside the PFL - or the usual three?  Any preferences for an opponent?

Aug 29/31  Open
Sep 7 at Eastern Washington
Sep 14 Open
Sep 21 at South Dakota

I'd go with Bulldog mascot teams:

Georgetown U in Week 0
Truman State in Week 2

Keeping it real, sort of.

Bryant. I’m declaring them interested because they seem to offer every Iowan in basketball.

If we could convince a PFL team to move its game with Drake from Oct/Nov to an early date, Sacred Heart might sign on. Doubtful Drake would be a priority for Sacred Heart when filling a prime early season slot. 

However, I wonder whether our head coach would want an early season league game.

Would Northwestern want to play us again? I don't know their 2024 schedule, but I'd love to tee it up with those guys again.
(A different officiating crew would be nice, as well)

Georgetown, a tongue-in-cheek suggestion, has filled its early season schedule.

'Keeping an eye on Truman.

BTW, Truman's head coach recently retired.  I think Wollmering will promote from within.

You don't want to host them or you know they are not the teams?

There are very few teams left with those open dates open.

We're down to 17 questions.

If this team had a live mascot, would it be human?

I believe they are for world peace...they seem like decent folks.

It's a team that Drake has played in the past...not a first-time opponent.

It's not Sun Moon University either...they open with Tokyo Tech.

The team is on your list.

The paperwork has not been finalized as of the other day, but it should be announced soon.
