Seven home games highlight UD’s schedule
With excitement building around the University of Delaware football program, the Blue Hen faithful will get more opportunities than usual to root on the Blue and Gold next fall.
The Blue Hens will host seven games at Delaware Stadium in 2019, including one against five-time national champion North Dakota State. It’s the first time since 2014 that Delaware has had seven home games on its regular season schedule.
In addition to the 2019 schedule, Homecoming and Parents and Family weekend have also been set with Oct. 19 set for Parents/Family Weekend and Oct. 26 set for Homecoming.
The 2019 campaign will kickoff with the renewal of the in-state rivalry with Delaware State on Thursday, Aug. 29.
A road trip to Rhode Island starts Colonial Athletic Association play for the Blue Hens when they visit the Rams on Sept. 7.
The North Dakota State Bison visit Newark on Sept 14 for a highly-anticipated rematch, followed by a visit from Penn on Sept. 21.
Atlantic Coast Conference-foe Pittsburgh will be the Blue Hens’ BCS opponent on Sept. 28, followed by the bye week for the first weekend in October.
CAA play ramps up in October with a trip to Elon, followed by back-to-back home games with New Hampshire (10/19) and Richmond (10/26). Road trips to nearby Towson (11/2) and Villanova (11/23) sandwich two home games with Albany (11/9) and Stonybrook (11/16) to wrap up the 2019 schedule.
