MEAC Football Non-Conference Game Analysis

The non-conference analysis is simply a look at who each FCS team is playing as of late May / early June. Occasionally schedules change, FBS schools buyout contracts and swap opponents, causing a domino effect. So these are tentative opponents, subject to change.
Bethune-Cookman: @ Miami(FL), @ Southeastern Louisiana, @ Florida Atlantic
Delaware State: @ Delaware, @ West Virginia, @ Florida State
Florida A&M: vs. Texas Southern, @ Arkansas, vs. Tennessee State
Hampton: @ Ohio, vs. Livingstone, vs. Monmouth
Howard: @ UNLV, @ Kent State, @ Richmond
Morgan State: @ Towson, vs. Albany, @ Rutgers
Norfolk State: vs. Virginia State, vs. William & Mary, @ James Madison
North Carolina A&T: @ Gardner-Webb, vs. Mars Hill, @ Charlotte
North Carolina Central: @ Duke, vs. Shaw, vs. Gardner-Webb
Savannah State: @ Appalachian State, @ Montana, @ Charleston Southern
South Carolina State: @ Southern, vs. Charleston Southern, vs. Johnson C. Smith
As is typical from the Mid-Eastern, the eleven teams are playing a total of twelve games against the FBS.  Bethune-Cookman, Delaware State and Howard are all playing two FBS opponents.  In fact, all three of those and Savannah State, are playing all three non-conference games on the road.  That seems very disadvantageous, and it is, but the guaranteed money for playing these road games can fund an athletic department for most of the year for many of these schools.  Twenty-one of the twenty-eight games against Division I opponents are on the road for the MEAC.
