So much hot scheduling news on this mid-March Thursday!

First was the announcement that UCLA and Texas A&M had scheduled a home-and-home series, which will be played in 2016 and 2017. Well, that series caused the postponement of UCLA's series with Rutgers to 2020 and 2021. 

But not to worry! Rutgers didn't even have to leave the Pac-12 to find a replacement for the original dates, as the school announced a home-and-home of its own with Washington. The first game of the series will be played in Seattle on Sept. 3, 2016 with the second game in Piscataway on Sept. 2, 2017.

The first meeting in 2016 will be the first meeting ever between the two schools.

Rutgers will make the move from the American Athletic Conference to the Big Ten this season.
