Not a shocker. Lots of conference matchups that day eating up the better time slots.

Undoubtedly dozens of fans outside the states of Arkansas and New Mexico will tune in for this blockbuster matchup.  New Mexico State carries a certain gravitas with them into every game they play.  Playing a meat grinder Sun Belt schedule, they have racked up the following records the last five years:

2012  1-11
2013  2-10
2014  2-10
2015  3-9
2016  3-9

Word on the street is that the original plan was to play Westminster College instead, but they couldn't get out of their scheduled matchup with Bethany this weekend.

Seriously, why are games like this even allowed?  If and when the playoff expands to include all conference champions regardless of record, I hope a rule is put in place that P5 conference members can only schedule games against other P5s and major independents.  I used to listen to every Arkansas football and basketball game through the static of AM radio stations long before the SEC network and even ESPN existed, but I have no interest in watching an SEC program play New Mexico State or Florida A&M.

It's Family Weekend/Dad's Day at most of the sororities, that usually means a decent crowd. I figure 63,000 announced.

Don't sleep on NMSU. They are vastly improved and returned 16 starters. Hung 42 on Kentucky last year.

They are showing to be a much better team this year.  Unfortunately, the way things have been going I wouldn't sleep on them when the time comes.

Then don't. No one is forcing you to watch it.

NMSU did not look too impressive in a loss to Troy Saturday night.

Then don't. No one is forcing you to watch it.

Just what this and other programs need, fewer fans watching on TV and attending in person.  You must have been a marketing major in college, right?

Every early September weekend I look at the schedule to see which games I want to watch and there are usually 6-8 decent matchups.  The rest are crap.  The NFL, long thought to be invincible in terms of fan interest, is suffering drops in both TV viewership and attendance.  But why would the people who run college football programs try to learn anything?  Just keep on keeping on...

Bitching about lack of fans watching/attending, right after you said you have no desire to watch. Interesting tactic there.

Did Long select this time slot? No.

Does any P5 school play all P5 nonconference games? I don't think so.

Would anyone outside of Arkansas watch this game even if it were the 7 pm ESPN 2 slot? Not with the other games going on at that time.

Beat Aggies and it will be decent crowd. Can't imagine it being late game....

Apparently you missed the part where I said I hope when the playoff field is expanded, and all conference champions are included regardless of record...meaning a team could get in with an 8-4 record, thus eliminating the need to protect against losing an OOC game...these cupcake matchups that no one in America is interested in seeing go away.

I also didn't say Long.  I said the people who run college football, meaning the NCAA and all athletic administrators.  College football is no more invincible than the NFL was thought to be, and people are tuning out and staying home in that case.

If tickets to games were sold on a per-game basis, there wouldn't be 35,000 people in the stands to watch New Mexico State.  That fans basically have to buy season tickets in order to attend the interesting matchups is why attendance of 65,000 or more can be announced.  Having bought season tickets for many years, and tried to sell the ones I didn't want to use, I can tell you for sure that many of the people who actually are in the stands on game day will have paid far below face value, if they paid anything at all, to attend.

How long can athletic departments in effect coerce their fans into buying tickets to games they don't want to attend?  I don't know, but in an increasingly competitive market for entertainment dollars the NFL and other institutions are finding there are limitations. 

This isn't just an Arkansas thing.  I wouldn't walk across the street to get a free beer if it involved having to sit through watching Florida pummel Bethune Cookman.  But, this is an Arkansas message board so "contests" against opponents such as Florida A&M, New Mexico State, and Coastal Carolina are relevant.

Passing up free beer to watch football? I don't think we'd get along.

Also, I'd imagine LSU matchups against Troy and Chattanooga and Georgia matchups against Samford and Appalachian State are relevant to them, too.

I'm not saying they will win but they aren't Florida A&M. They played Arizona State close and out gained them 549 to 400.

Arizona St. has played 3 games, giving up 31, 30 and 52 points. They have no defense.

But, if they win we will likely see a sell out.  See how easy that is?
