Scheduling for Fall 2021 will begin this summer.
2020 was a dud of a year. While we were able to make it to a couple games, the COVID-19 pandemic derailed plans to get closer to the goal of 130 FBS games. However, it did kickstart the Summer Road Trip– a tradition I plan to continue this year.
This year, the FCS pushed their season to February and hopefully, the FBS will be able to hold their spring exhibition games. Tarleton State is local and a school I have on tap.
In 2018, I attended the Georgia spring exhibition game, “G-Day,” that featured now-Buckeye Justin Fields. This season, I’ll be on the lookout for another spring exhibition in the Texas area (or a few).
2021 Summer Road Trip
The inaugural Summer Road Trip was such a success, I plan to do it again this year. In 2020, we traveled America’s Heartland, which included states like Kansas, Iowa, Wisconsin, Illinois, and Indiana. The second leg of the trip was a tour of the Deep South, which included schools like Tennessee, Clemson, Auburn, and Ole Miss (among a dozen others).
The 2021 Summer Road Trip schedule will be revealed on Saturday, April 3, 2021. Without revealing too much, Road to CFB will set off for uncharted territory, adding a breakneck amount of stadiums over six days.
