    Shouldn’t UMass count as independent? They’re leaving the MAC after the 2015 season.

    Neither TCU nor West Virginia were in the Big 12 when we scheduled them. TCU was still in the MWC when PLAYED them. Texas is the only Big 12 team we have scheduled in independence.

    And Virginia is in the ACC…always has been.

    • Thanks for the corrections. I’ve updated the list.
