No surprises on the Bucknell schedule released this morning, at least not in terms of opponents. Most of these games were already known because of opponents having released their schedules previously.
Testament to how tough it was to get teams to come to Sojka Pavilion this season, the Bison have just three out of conference home games: the previously announced Nov. 14 date with Wake Forest, the BracketBuster payback with Northern Iowa (Dec. 2) and a home date in this year's BracketBuster (Feb. 17).
Of particular interest is the timing of the George Mason game at the Verizon Center in D.C. It will be played Sunday, Dec. 3, giving the Bison back-to-back games against high profile mid major foes on consecutive days.
The schedule release also notes the possibility of one more game being added.
