For example: Bemidji @ Mich Tech on Nov 1 & 2 would fill one hole in both schedules. It would be an open weekend, the home/road matches, and they are scheduled to play only one series against each other. I think something like this could be found for everyone, although I am not going to take the time to look for it.
One would think that open dates would allow a second series to balance the home/road schedule and make the matrix 4games/5opponents, 2games/2opponents = 2 games. Not ideal, but only losing 2 home dates for each school, and no Alaska travel. Perhaps a wash for this year anyway.
