I know Colgate struggled to find some opponents this season and Ferris state was a last minute add sometime earlier this year. I think one-night games that are far away away are mainly just to fill out their OOC schedule with whoever is left or will play them.

Would be nice to hear from someone who knows about teams' schedules and how scheduling in advance works. I've heard that teams know their schedules for the next 2-4 years in advance for the most part at least, they just don't know exactly what weekend they'll play them until it gets closer. I wished they would make the OOC schedules known like football and basketball does. I know Minnesota and North Dakota have a site that's pretty good on future opponents but I haven't been able to find what they have for other schools.

Slow week at work got me going on getting a 2020-21 spreadsheet set up. I'll create a new thread tonight or one night this week once I have it ready.

You won't see much from the Big Ten with future scheduling right now. I saw mention recently that schools were asked to not schedule any additional future games due to possible conference expansion (Illinois) and needing to sort out conference play.

I heard that as well but I think that doesn't come into play until the 2021-22 season. Probably mainly because of the possibility of reducing their OOC games from 10 to 6. (I would assume that's the case)

Does it seem like more early season non-conference contests are becoming one-night stands, rather than traditional two-night series? Colgate this year had one-night games against RIT, Ferris State and Boston College to open the season.

I think it helps when you have a "travel partner". RIT and Niagara have often paired up against 2 ECAC schools for non-conference games.

I know it is not for this year, but BSU's AD leaked next year's non-conference opponents on the Beaver Radio Network's Green Mill Coaches Show on Wednesday night. They will play a home and home with North Dakota and then have St. Cloud and Duluth on the schedule. It wasn't completely clear from the conversation, but there is a possibility that those two matchups could be home and home as well.

Update for the 2020-21 Beaver non-conference schedule, from last night's Tom Serratore show:

Duluth Home and Home
St. Cloud Home and Home
North Dakota Home and Home
At Lowell (1 game)
At Merrimack (1 game)

Nice this covers all of Bemidji State's OOC schedule. I updated this info in the 2020-21 schedules spreadsheet. I wonder if the Lowell and Merrimack game is for the thanksgiving tournament.

Conference schedules pre-B1G were easy to predict. You would know who you had home/away well in advance because the rotations were set. Now it's a bit more of a crapshoot. Add in the next round of shifting in 2021 and everything goes to crap.

Non-conference was 2-4 years out with fairly solid certainty. You would get random circumstances that would cause series to be delayed, but for the most part they were also predicable. If your team is willing to talk about it, you know who you have deals with and who is owed what (home/home, 2 for 1, one-off series, etc.)

If you are looking ahead, it was mentioned on the radio last weekend that BU will be coming to NMU next season (20/21).

Good to know - I'll add this to the 2020-21 schedules spreadsheet.

FYI - everyone, a new 2020-21 schedules thread has been started and the link is in there. Keep these OOC information coming!

It is, and this will be the 1st ever meeting between Lowell and Bemidji State. That will leave Mercyhurst as the only D1 program that Lowell has never played.

Interesting...

Here is what I have for UMD:

Icebreaker with Minnesota. Not sure of other two teams.
BSU home and home
@UML
Wisconsin

Assuming they fill their extra game they have two series to fill. Not sure what they will be.

Updated 2020-21 spreadsheet with this information - thanks!

Extreme example, I know of a series that was originally scheduled in 2015 or so that has been pushed back so far that it isn't going to be played until 2022 because of a pile of circumstances on both sides.BU had a 2 year home-and-home series scheduled with Penn State, but when Notre Dame joined the B1G Penn State was not able to honored the contract (I don't know if the series was canceled or pushed out). I believe that the games were to have been played in 2017-18 and 2018-19 as Coach Quinn mentioned that the Minnesota State home-and-home series played those seasons were a late addition to fill a hole in the BU schedule. BU also lost a game for the 2014-15 season when Army canceled their scheduled game late and BU was not able to schedule a replacement game. Instead BU ended up scheduling an exhibition game against the US World Junior team to fill the slot.

And Mercyhurst an Lowell are both Pennsylvania. That's strange.
