Face it, you are naming outliers, as are we. 4 SEC teams have regular rivalry games. You've name 3 or 4 that do. The rule for most teams is to not have them. At the end of the day, the SEC schedules the way it does because they think it is the best for their schools. Your conference can grown a brain and do the same thing, or not. It has worked for us. UGa has gotten really aggressive with its future OOC scheduling because (1) they think that will be to their advantage when the CFP expands to 6 or 8 teams, and (2) the fans are tired of bullshit games. 10 P5 games, 2 G5 cupcakes (say, some low to mid-level PAC teams so we can travel) will be the ideal situation then. I don't really think the SEC or their fans gives a crap what any other conference does.
