Cincinnati and Georgia State to Host UT Martin in 2016

By Kevin Kelley -

The Cincinnati Bearcats and the Georgia State Panthers will each host the UT Martin Skyhawks in 2016, according to UTM’s official website.

Cincinnati will host UT Martin at Nippert Stadium in Ohio to open the 2016 season on Sept. 3. Seven weeks later on Oct. 22, Georgia State will host the Skyhawks at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.

Cincinnati and Georgia State will each be facing UT Martin for the first time on the gridiron.

UT Martin is a member of the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) and competes in the Ohio Valley Conference. The Skyhawks finished the 2014 season 6-6 overall (5-3 OVC).

The addition of UT Martin tentatively completes Cincinnati’s 2016 non-conference schedule. The Bearcats are also scheduled to visit Purdue (Sept. 10) and host Miami, OH (Sept. 24) and BYU (Nov. 12).

UT Martin also gives Georgia State four non-conference games for the 2016 season. The Panthers are also slated to host Ball State (Sept. 1 or 2) and travel to Air Force (Sept. 10) and Wisconsin (Sept. 17).

Woah I thought that UTM player in the picture was an Auburn player. Their uniforms look the same.

There’s a reason they look the same. UT-Martin gets hand-me-downs from Auburn. They get most of our equipment and jerseys that we don’t use anymore.

UTM wears an orange jersey for home games instead of blue like Auburn. When UTM played at AU several years ago they asked AU to wear white so they could wear orange and it not look like and Auburn spring game.

UT Martin is the ultimate cupcake game. They need the money as they only average 3-4,000 per home game at their high school football field. Cinncinati’s benchwarmers will see plenty of action.

U T Martin has a real good football team and their alumni Jerry Reese is President and General Manager for The New York Giants in the NFL.
Josh. ☺
