The ETSU Buccaneers have announced their 2022 football schedule, which includes five home games and 11 total contests.

“I am excited about the schedule that was put together for this upcoming fall,” said new ETSU head coach George Quarles. “It will be a challenging conference as always and I feel that each game will make us better as the season progresses. We are excited to continue the winning ways in front of the best fans in the Southern Conference.”

ETSU opens the 2022 season on Thursday, Sept. 1 at home at William B. Greene Stadium in Johnson City, Tenn., with a non-conference contest against the Mars Hill Lions.

I wonder what happened with the return game @ Delaware State? They swapped in Robert Morris.
