First thing to note, bedlam is NOT on Thanksgiving weekend. It's in October before homecoming.

can’t wait for that game with Western Illinois (literally didn’t even know they had a football team)

We take a Bye before big12 play and that’s it. No, breaks built in to fix things or get healthy once Big12 play starts. Big12 did us no favors.

Out of curiosity, I looked up the goons schedule next year. They finally have back to back (Saturday to Saturday, no bye weeks), in conference, true away road games scheduled next year. The last time that happened, the best I could find looking quickly (didn't look too hard), was 2006. That is some Big XII home cooking with scheduling for sure.

Can't believe there's only 1 bye week. That's crazy.

The number of Bye weeks are dictated by the number of Saturdays between Labor Day and Thanksgiving. (Obviously that changes as Thanksgiving shifts around on the calendar). Due to Thanksgiving falling "late" in 2019, there was the chance for 2 bye weeks.

Since Thanksgiving comes "early" in 2020, there is only one bye week in the schedule. Nothing sinister about that by the schedule makers. Just simple math based on the number of Saturdays between the two holidays that typically define college football season.
