Eastern Michigan Adds Old Dominion and Army to Future Football Schedules

By Kevin Kelley -

The Eastern Michigan Eagles have added games against Old Dominion, Army and Morgan State to their future football schedules, EMU’s 2013 football media guide indicates.

Eastern Michigan’s 2014 non-conference schedule is now complete with the addition of the season and home opener against the Morgan State Bears on Aug. 30 and a trip to face new C-USA member Old Dominion on Sept. 13.

EMU previously announced 2014 non-conference games at Florida on Sept. 6 and at Michigan State on Sept. 27.

The 2014 game at Old Dominion is the front half of a home-and-home series with the Monarchs. The second and final game will be played at Rynearson Stadium in Ypsilanti on Sept. 5, 2015, which will be the season-opener for both schools.

After hosting ODU to open 2015, Eastern Michigan travels to Wyoming (Sept. 12), LSU (Oct. 3), and Army (Oct. 24). The exact date for the game at LSU was previously unannounced.

EMU has also added three future games against the Army Black Knights. The Eagles will host Army in 2016 (Nov. 12), travel to West Point in 2017 (Oct. 14), and host them again in 2018 (Nov. 10).

Eastern Michigan now has a tentative date for their Celebration of the State home game against the Michigan State Spartans. The game is currently set for Sept. 12, 2020 after previously being listed as “2018 or 2020.”

The Eagles have faced Michigan State nine times in their history, with only the first game in 1898 being played in Ypsilanti.

I suspect that 2020 game against MSU will be moved to Ford Field or maybe even to East Lansing. If so this would be the biggest EMU payday ever.
