That would be great to see for the MVC! I hope it happens.

Good news... hope they can get it done in time for next season. It sounds like we should know within the next month.

We kind of got short changed during the last 4 year agreement with the Aces only participating during 3 of those years. Now that the Mountain West has 11 members to the MVC's 10 - that circumstance will be reversed.

Follow up on this story by the Peoria Journal Star: http://www.pjstar.com/article/20150122/ ... 1420206795

According to the article, an announcement should be made next month on the renewal of the series! The agreement is supposedly for a four-year series, which will begin either next year or 2016-17 season.

It will be interesting to see who the Aces are matched up with.

They seem to base everything on the prior season's finish.
I think they should throw every school, in two hats and just blind draw the match-ups.
Alternating between all MVC schools hosting one year and MWC the following.
If you're the 11th school and you're left in the hat, for The MWC...oh well..schedule another game.

News is beginning to trickle out that the Challenge may in be on for next season. Reports are that Wyoming will be playing at Indiana State and that UNI will be playing at New Mexico next season.

It will be interesting to see who the Aces draw. If those in charge were fair, Evansville would be due to have a home game next season since we only received one home game (TCU) during the last Challenge four year run while playing two games on the road.
