2017 Football Schedule Announced With Thursday Night Home Opener
SALISBURY, N.C. -- Catawba College Director of Athletics, Larry Leckonby, has released the 2017 Catawba Indians football schedule. The 2017 slate includes six home games and a new conference rotation from recent seasons.
Catawba will open the season on Aug. 31 at home under the lights against St. Augustine’s on a Thursday night. For just the second time, the Indians will host a home night game on a Thursday. The last time was in 2007 when the Indians played Mars Hill on national television.
The road schedule includes a match up with NCAA-I FCS opponent VMI. That Sept. 9 contest is the tenth between the schools and first since 1990, a 24-7 win by the Keydets. The other road games see Catawba travel to UNC Pembroke, Carson-Newman, Tusculum and Limestone.
Other key home dates beside the opener are Family Weekend on Sept. 23 versus Mars Hill, Homecoming on Oct. 14 against Wingate and Hall of Fame weekend that concludes with the regular-season finale against Lenoir-Rhyne on Nov. 11.
Catawba will also play host to North Greenville on Oct. 7 and Newberry on Nov. 4.
