Syracuse Football Opponent Update: Pickins Gettin' Slimmer

A week ago, we took a look at the few schools left to fill the open fifth and sixth slots on the Syracuse Orange 2012 football schedule. Since then, Doc Gross put the kibosh on the Rutgers two-fer, the Boise State possibility remains just that and the Orange still have two open spots on their schedule.

Hopefully, the gears are in motion to fill them sooner than later because quite a few of the schools on that list have filled their open spots.

Arkansas and Rutgers agreed to a series, Houston completed it's schedule with North Texas, both Oklahoma and Oklahoma State filled their two open slots, Middle Tennessee grabbed a game against McNeese, Texas A&M added two games, UAB filled its schedule, UL-Lafayette is all set and UTEP doesn't need us.

And so, removing the current Big East schools from the mix, that leaves...

Boise State
Florida State
Hawai'i
Missouri (needs 2)
Nebraska
Nevada
North Texas


That's not terribly reassuring. Especially when you remember that Pittsburgh and Cincy still need to fill two slots as well and Rutgers, USF and UConn still have a spot to fill.

If the Boise State situation sorts itself out, that's one less thing to worry about. But with a FCS opponent already schedule, the Orange need to settle on at least one more non-con FBS opponent soon.
