The Big Ten Conference members have agreed to stop scheduling Football Championship Subdivision schools, formerly known as Division 1-AA.

The shift in scheduling for the Big Ten is in part for going to a nine-game conference schedule and shows the conference is looking to bolster the quality of non-conference games.

The Big 12 Conference already plays a nine-game conference schedule, but member schools still play a plethora of FCS opponents.

Texas Tech has played six FCS teams the past five seasons with no opponents from BCS Conferences winning those games by large margins each time.
