UCSB plays LMU in Phoenix.
Only UCSD, of all schools, has a decent home schedule (both SDSU and USD) and over the past 5 years, only Hawaii has consistently landed good opponents at home, given their unique situation for holiday tournaments.
A big part of the reason for why good MMs can't get other good MMs to visit is that the analytics punish teams to play away games. The NET tool needs to be adjusted so that road teams don't get dinged. Fix this so that hitting the road provides an advantage to a team's rating metric and watch these good games return.
Scheduling is Pasternack's greatest weakness, he usually has one of the softest schedules in the country year after year. This year looks to be be tougher but still, at most, a mid-pack SOS. SB has road games at UNM, UTEP & Fresno.
You left off UCI, they have home games vs. NMSU and S. Dakota. NMSU is normally a good opponent but their program imploded last year.
