It's never too early to talk football.'s Ivan Maisel took a look at the non-conference schedule of teams in the Mid-American Conference in his blog post today. His colleague, Andrea Adelson, posted this piece today listing all the MAC's non-conference schedules.

In looking at the schedules, Army is the most common MAC opponent in 2011, playing four MAC schools, including a Sept. 3 date at Huskie Stadium with Northern Illinois. Cincinnati, Michigan, Ohio State and UConn are next playing two MAC schools next year. Another game of note, former NIU head coach Jerry Kill will get another crack at Miami (OH) when the RedHawks travel to Minnesota to face the Gophers Sept. 17, the same day as NIU's game with Wisconsin at Soldier Field.
