St. Mary's and Weber State have agreed to a game on March 11 at 8 p.m. MT to give both teams an opportunity to stay fine-tuned before heading into post-season play. The West Coast Conference concludes its conference tournament on Monday, March 7th, while the Big Sky plays its championship game on Wed., March 9th. With full NCAA tournament play starting on March 17th, this would ensure neither team goes longer than 6 days between games before hitting tournament play. The game is interesting for Weber State, however, as if the Wildcats manage to play their way into the NCAA tournament, they could end up playing in a play-in game as early as March 15th, giving them little time to rest.

TCU opens at Baylor, and hosts SMU on Oct. 1, games that were already scheduled for a while. The Frogs were able to add home games against Louisiana-Monroe from the Sun Belt and FCS opponent Portland State.
The headliner is a Friday night matchup with BYU in Cowboys Stadium on ESPN2 at the end of October. TCU has owned BYU in their last 3 meetings to the tune of 101-17 (2 in DFW, 1 in Provo). The matchup has added flavor after TCU coach Gary Patterson's remarks months ago when BYU declared independence, saying the Cougars should "be careful what they wish for." Since that time, TCU accepted an invitation to the Big East.
Both TCU and BYU are 1-0 at Cowboys Stadium.

We at The Upset haven't spent much time on the Big Sky, but as basketball comes around the final turn before March Madness, we will have our eyes on the Big Sky Conference. Here's what's coming up down the stretch:
