To make things easier for people, I think it'd be good to go ahead and have future football schedules posted, as far as we know this at this point. I'll sticky this too, so it's easier to find and reference when necessary.

2023
9/2 - at New Mexico State (FBS, CUSA), $360k guarantee
9/9 - vs Illinois State (previously @ Southern Utah)
9/16 - vs Lindenwood (OVC)
9/23 - at Southern Utah
9/30 -
10/7 - at North Dakota
10/14 - vs Missouri State
10/21 - at North Dakota State
10/28 - vs Southern Illinois
11/4 - at Northern Iowa
11/11 - at Indiana State
11/18 - vs South Dakota

Do not play: Murray State, South Dakota State, Youngstown State

2024 (I think this is a 12-game season)
8/31 - at Northern Illinois (FBS, MAC), $350k guarantee
9/7 - vs UT-Martin
9/14 - at Eastern Kentucky
9/21 -
9/28 -
10/5 - at Southern Illinois
10/12 - vs Indiana State
10/19 - at Missouri State
10/26 - vs Northern Iowa
11/2 - vs North Dakota State
11/9 - at South Dakota
11/16 - at Illinois State
11/23 - vs North Dakota

Do not play: Murray State, South Dakota State, Youngstown State

2025
9/6 -
9/13 - vs Eastern Kentucky
9/20 - at Eastern Washington (Big Sky)

2026
9/12 - at Wisconsin (FBS, Big Ten), $575k guarantee
9/19 - at Lindenwood (OVC)

2027
9/4 - at Oklahoma State (FBS, Big 12), $425k guarantee

2028
9/2 - at Purdue (FBS, Big Ten), $450k guarantee

For those unfamiliar with MVFC scheduling, each pair of two years there is one pair of teams that don't play each other.
For us...
'12/'13 - North Dakota State
'14/'15 - Missouri State
'16/'17 - Youngstown State
'18/'19 - South Dakota State
2020 - As of 2020, North Dakota joined the conference and each team in the MVFC skips playing two teams each year. Originally scheduled to not play North Dakota State or Missouri State in 2020 or 2021, but changed due to COVID
2021 - NDSU and MSU
'22/'23 - UND and USD
'22/'24 - Murray State joins the conference and we go to not playing 3 teams for a pair of years. In this case, Murray State, South Dakota State, and Youngstown State
 
And for reference, here's previous FBS guarantees that we've received:
2017 - at Coastal Carolina, $300k, won 52-10
2021 - at Ball State, $350k, lost 31-21
2022 - at Minnesota, $450k, lost 62-10
