VMI releases 2014 football schedule

The return of Southern Conference league play for the first time in 12 years highlights the 2014 VMI football schedule announced Tuesday.

vmi_logoVMI, returning to the Southern Conference where it played 79 years as a member from 1924-2003 before an 11-year run in the Big South Conference, will play its first home SoCon game in Lexington against Mercer on Sept. 27. Other home SoCon games include Furman (Nov. 1) and The Citadel (Nov. 22) in the “Military Classic of the South”.

VMI’s non-conference schedule features two FBS opponents – a road trip to MAC champion Bowling Green on September 6 and a game against Navy October 11 that will be VMI’s second trip to Annapolis in three years. It will be the first time since 2010 (Virginia, Army) that VMI has faced two FBS opponents in the same season.

The Keydets will open the 2014 season at Bucknell, the same opponent it closed out the 2013 campaign in Lexington. It marks the third straight season that VMI will open the season on the road. VMI’s home opener against Davidson September 13 marks the Wildcats’ first visit to Foster Stadium since 2006.

Gardner-Webb, a member of the Big South that played VMI in its former conference since 2003, will return to Lexington October 18 for a non-conference tilt on Parents Weekend.

Homes games are scheduled to begin at 1:30. Road games will be announced at a later time.

2014 season tickets will be on sale later in the spring. Tickets may be ordered at www.vmitickets/com or by calling 540-464-7266.
