As teams begin to release their non-conference schedules, it’s time to see what games could help make or break the teams season. Next up, the defending OVC champions, Murray State

Murray fans, circle November 20th on your calendar. Then feel free to take the rest of the month off.

This is an odd schedule, but pretty close to what we’re used to seeing from the Racers. Murray always, ALWAYS, hosts two far inferior teams in November, and this year is no different. Maybe I’m alone in this, but I don’t enjoy watching a team win by 50 or more at home. I feel like I’m being cheated out of a home game.

But as bland as November is, aside from the trip to UAB, the Racers play a great December schedule before opening conference play. The weakest game is a rivalry game against Western, and every team should challenge Murray. Here’s the question, can they win 4 of the 5?
