UNC, Florida among future CU football opponents

Posted

BUIES CREEK — Campbell has announced nine future nonconference football games, including trips to North Carolina State and The University of Florida, as well as a pair of home and home Football Championship Subdivision opponents.

Ranging from 2021 until 2028, the dates include four games against Football Bowl Subdivision opponents (Liberty – 2024, NC State – 2025, 2028, Florida – 2026), plus five FCS matchups. Seven of the nine newly unveiled games will come on the road.

The first of the games will come in 2021 at perennial FCS powerhouse James Madison on Nov. 6. The Dukes have claimed a pair of national championships, most recently in 2016, with appearances in the national title game in three of the last four years.

CU will also travel to Southern Conference member Western Carolina in 2024 (Sept. 7) to start a two-game series with the Catamounts. Campbell will also host WCU in 2025 (Sept. 27).

The third and final scheduled nonconference date of 2024 will be a second trip to FBS Independent, and former Big South foe Liberty. The programs will meet for the first time in a previously announced 2021 game in Lynchburg, Virginia.

Highlighting the Camels’ future dates are a pair of trips to nearby Raleigh for games at N.C. State. Campbell will make its first appearance at Carter-Finley Stadium in 2025 (Oct. 4), making a return in 2028 (Sept. 23). The Wolfpack are one of two Atlantic Coast Conference programs on the Camels’ future schedules, along with a date at North Carolina in Chapel Hill.

CU faced its first ever ACC opponent to close the 2020 season at Wake Forest. The Camels completed an abbreviated 2020 fall schedule, featuring four games, all at FBS opponents, making trips to Georgia Southern, Coastal Carolina, Appalachian State and Wake Forest.

Campbell will again make history in 2026, taking on its first SEC opponent at Florida (Sept. 12), heading to “The Swamp,” Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, in Gainesville, Florida.
