By Kevin Kelley -

The Cornell Big Red have officially released their 2019 football schedule, which features five home games and 10 contests overall.

Cornell will open the 2019 season with a non-conference contest on the road at the Marist Red Foxes on Saturday, Sept. 21. The Big Red open Ivy League play the following week on Sept. 28 at the Yale Bulldogs.

On Oct. 5, Cornell steps out of Ivy League action to open their home schedule at Schoellkopf Field in Ithaca, New York, against the Georgetown Hoyas. The Big Red then travels to take on Ivy League foe Harvard on Oct. 12.

Cornell returns to Ithaca to host their final non-conference game of the season against the Colgate Raiders on Oct. 19. That contest is followed by two more home contests against the Brown Bears on Oct. 26 and the Princeton Tigers on Nov. 2.

The Big Red kick off their November slate with back-to-back road games at the Penn Quakers on Nov. 9 and at the Dartmouth Big Green on Nov. 16.

Cornell wraps up their 2019 football schedule on Nov. 23 against the Columbia Lions at home at Schoellkopf Field.

The Big Red finished the 2018 season 3-7 overall and 2-4 in the Ivy League. Cornell has won three Ivy League championships, but not since the 1990 season when they finished 7-3 overall and 6-1 in conference play.
