I don't know if coaches use scheduling information as bulletin board material, but BC now has an interesting bit of motivation when playing Rutgers. The Big Ten school willingly cancelled their series with Miami (the buyout was $100,000) to play BC instead. There is no way to justify this for Rutgers other than they view the BC series as winnable and didn't have the same confidence in their ability to beat Miami.
Aside from the cancellation penalty, Rutgers might be losing a bit more. Because Miami and BC are both in the ACC, we know the TV money is equal. Miami doesn't sell out many games but their attendance was much better than BC's this year. Their ticket revenue has to be better, so that is less money in Rutgers' pocket. Plus Rutgers has focused on recruiting south Florida. One less appearance there doesn't help their Florida recruiting. Even with the potential higher charter flight costs, it doesn't make sense for Rutgers to pay to get out of its Miami series.
I guess it is only fair to be cynical about this sort of scheduling since BC did everything it could to pick the least intimidating Power 5 teams around. In my opinion both schools are being short sighted. There is a way to schedule smart but there are football and financial reasons to challenge yourself. Rutgers clearly doesn't think that way.
