The Gonzaga Bulldogs have added three more home games onto the non-conference schedule to round it out, Jim Meehan reported on Tuesday.
Zags’ non-conference schedule is tentatively finished (nothing set in stone during a pandemic). Three more home games added - Southern, Dec. 10; Idaho, Dec. 14; Northwestern State, Dec. 21. Six home games between Dec. 8-29.— Jim Meehan (@SRJimm) November 10, 2020
As his tweet mentions, that gives the Zags six home games—the three mentioned as well as Tarleton State, Northern Arizona, and Dixie State. Gonzaga will also play five games away from The Kennel in what will be the meat of the non-conference slate.
With the preseason No. 1 ranking under their belt, the Zags scheduled as aggressively as possible to get those premier matchups down on paper. During the non-conference, Gonzaga is scheduled to face No. 2 Baylor, No. 5 Iowa, No. 6 Kansas, and No. 12 Tennessee, as well as Auburn (receiving votes).
So get excited about those games, because the rest will be a blowout. Dixie State, Tarleton State, and Idaho are sub-300 KenPom teams, and Northern Arizona, Southern, and Northwestern State are sub-250 KenPom teams.
The Zags open the season against Kansas, on Nov. 26, at 10:30 am PT. You can get a taste of what is to come at Kraziness in the Kennel this Thursday, at 8:00 pm PT.
