What's the rule of thumb of scheduling games in the future? 2017 isn't for some time, but the 100-year anniversary of the series (since 1919) is just right around the corner. I wonder what kept them from aiming for 2019.

I think it depends on the school.

Im not sure Maryland has done a deal in an increment of more than four years. It had Temple from 1997 to 2000 and again from 2011 to 2014. Theres two-year deals with Cal and Rutgers, 2-and-1s with some smaller schools, etc. Doing it in modest chunks seems like a good way to make sure the situation doesnt change immensely.

Of course, I think Notre Dame has an agreement to play Michigan sometime around 2030 right now. So not every school views it the same way.
