Bridgewater College head football coach Michael Clark has released the program’s 2015 schedule that features four night games, including two under the lights at Jopson Field.
The Eagles open the 2015 slate with a rare Friday night contest on Sept 4 when they host Gettysburg College for a 7:00 p.m. kickoff.
“We are looking forward to the challenges the 2015 slate brings,” Clark said. “Our student body embraced night football on campus in a big way and we will be able to bring that back to campus twice in 2015. To accommodate Gettysburg, it involved a Friday night event to open the season over the Labor Day weekend.”
