Welcome to The Outside Zone, a thrice-weekly newsletter about Group of Five college football.

These programs and conferences are so often left without coverage, and this newsletter hopes to fix that – as best it can – through offseason team previews and in-season looks at the team and conference stories that you need to be following throughout the G5 ranks.

The Monday and Friday dispatches are for premium subscribers only, available for just $5 a month of $50 a year. In the season, Monday is for G5 game reviews, while Friday serves as a look ahead to the weekend’s upcoming games. Wednesday dispatches are free to all subscribers and work more as a miscellaneous story, often about conference races or the hot topic of the week.

The offseason is preview season in these parts, with the vast majority of stories taking a look ahead to the upcoming season in team-by-team previews.
