USC, Auburn On UI 2015 Schedule

The University of Idaho and Sun Belt Conference have released the 2015 football schedules this morning. Idaho athletic director Rob Spear did a bit of work adjusting the non-conference schedule. Originally slated to open the season at USC, the Vandals will now open on Thursday Sep. 3 hosting Ohio before traveling to USC on Sep. 12. The Vandals were then slated to head to Auburn the week after playing USC, but that game has been moved to the 11th game of the season on Nov. 21. Playing money games in November is common practice for SEC teams, as losing conference games late in the season can be crippling for the College Football Playoff race/SportsLink. More here.

Question: USC? Auburn? Do you suppose Idaho can conjure another mini-hurricane to grab the money and not play a la Florida in 2014?
