This years game was a payout game. Next year is the first year of a home and home. They have a history of playing the first game of home and home in Missoula and buying out the return trip. That will be tough to do if they come here first.
No big surprises, but here is the 2013 schedule per Jeremy Hoeck:
•Aug. 31 — vs UC Davis •Sept. 7 — at Kansas •Sept. 21 — at Northern Arizona •Sept. 28 — at Western Illinois (MVFC) •Oct. 5 — vs Missouri State (MVFC) •Oct. 12 — vs Indiana State (MVFC) •Oct. 19 — at Northern Iowa (MVFC) •Oct. 26 — at Illinois State (MVFC) •Nov. 2 — vs Youngstown State (MVFC) •Nov. 9 — vs Montana •Nov. 16 — vs South Dakota State (MVFC) •Nov. 23 — at North Dakota State (MVFC)
VERMILLION, S.D.—University of South Dakota football will open its 2014 season against University of Oregon on Aug. 30 at Autzen Stadium in Eugene, Ore. The Ducks are a part of the Coyotes’ non-conference schedule which includes a trip to Montana (Sept. 13) and a home game against North Dakota (Sept. 20).
“This is an opportunity for our team to see one of the top programs in the United States and play in one of the nation’s best facilities,” said USD head coach Joe Glenn. “It will be an experience that our players will be able to share with their children and grandchildren. Financially, it helps out our department and helps make ends meet.”
Oregon will be the seventh FBS opponent for the Coyotes in five seasons and first from the Pac-12 Conference. South Dakota is taking on Kansas this season on Sept. 7. The Coyotes’ signature win against an FBS opponent was a 41-38 victory against Minnesota in 2010.
Per JH tweet: The $525K contract with Oregon is by far the most USD has received for an FBS game. Kansas this fall is around $400-425, Herbster said.
Also per JH: Also announced today, USD football will host North Dakota on Sept. 20, 2014. Nice to see that series renewed.
Update: Jeremy Hoeck þ@jhoeck 29m Update @tommillergf, no UND football game for USD in 2014. Coyotes hosting Northern Arizona that fall. Updated release was just sent out.

I like this. I think it is important that we associate with the estranged Dakota school, and the Big Sky as much as possible. Plus it makes for a non conference game that people will get really excited for.
