Big Sky Hints At 6-game Football Schedule For Spring
Staff Report
Big Sky Conference commissioner Tom Wistrcill announced Friday that the league’s committee and athletic directors are working on a six-game conference-only schedule for the spring football season.
Wistrcill, who broke the news on Twitter, said the schedules will be unveiled in November.
Big Sky teams usually play eight conference games, and another three or four nonleague contests. With only 16 playoff spots available for the Football Championship Subdivision postseason — 11 conference champions, five at-large bids — a team most likely will need to go 6-0 or 5-1 in the league to have a chance.
Twelve Big Sky teams plan to participate in the spring season, down one after Sacramento State announced Thursday it will opt out. Troy Taylor, the coach of the defending Big Sky champion Hornets, made the decision to prevent overworking student-athletes, who might have to turn around and play a fall season not long after their spring campaign ends.
