James Madison Home and Home (home in 23, @ JMU in 26)

JMU is FBS beginning this year.

The game in 2023 replaces the game against Liberty that we cancelled.

Not a bad addition at all…

I agree. I think this is a good replacement for Liberty… sadly, I wish the MAC had gone after them for conference expansion but that is a completely different topic.

When are we making the return trip to Holy Cross?

(Kidding)

We’ll see how their FBS transition will go but they’ll likely be a very tough opponent (three straight FCS semifinal appearances and just five total losses over the past three seasons).

With that our first four games of 2023 are set (in order): @ Da U, @ UMass, @ UC, vs. JMU. We still need a week-one game in 2026, whatever we end up scheduling for then (almost certainly a P5 buy game) will be followed by: vs. Holy Cross, vs. UC (at PBS), @ JMU.
