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.

Also we are hosting Holy Cross in 2026


When are we making the return trip to Holy Cross?


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.
