UNT's 2008 football nonconference schedule, while yet to be announced, is set...for the moment.
The 2008 opener at national champion LSU on Aug. 30 could be moving but would require string-pulling. LSU, with one open date, apparently wants to play a TV game on Aug. 30 against a better opponent than UNT. The Mean Green has a Sept. 20 open date, but LSU is playing Auburn that day.
To make this work, LSU might need UNT to move its Sept. 13 game at Rice to some other date, if possible. Currently, LSU is showing a "TBA" in its 2008 schedule on Sept. 13. As for UNT-Rice moving to Sept. 20, that wouldn't work; Rice is at Texas that day according to the Longhorns' future schedules.
Right now, UNT is scheduled to host Tulsa on Sept. 6 and play at Kansas State on Sept. 27. LSU has games against Troy and Mississippi State on those dates, respectively.
UNT has already switched 2008 openers once, completing an agreement with Miami (Fla.) to drop an Aug. 30 meeting at Dolphin Stadium, the Hurricanes' new home starting next season.
UNT should announce its 2008 schedule soon.
