HOW do you play two exhibition games in early November??

I've always wanted to do that, but have never seen how/when to do so.

You can play an exhibition game any time you want (summer, fall, winter, spring) and as often as you want by just clicking on Exhibition Game when you are logging into DDSCB and then selecting the teams you want to play in the game..be sure to change who's directing "your" team from "CPU" to "HUMAN" on the screen where you select the 2 teams.
