Don't you think an October series with Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan State, Penn State, Minnesota might attract more people to Yost than an October series with Niagara? The potential is there to stack the schedule with some quality names. Or even a series with Boston College?
Granted, those Niagara series are still going to happen, but I think this move will get more people to watch. And no matter what, that will be good for the game.
