Furman announces 2023 football schedule

By Brian Wilmer -

The Furman Paladins have announced their 2023 football schedule, which includes five home games and 11 contests total.

Furman opens the 2023 season with a Thursday night contest at Paladin Stadium in Greenville, S.C. The Paladins will square off with the Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles of the Big South-OVC. The contest is set for Thursday, Aug. 31.

The Paladins then hit the road for two non-league outings. Furman travels down I-26 to Columbia to square off with the South Carolina Gamecocks on Sept. 9, then ventures to FCS Independent Kennesaw State on Sept. 16.

Southern Conference opponents then descend on Paladin Stadium, with a bye week partitioning games with Mercer on Sept. 23 and The Citadel on Oct. 7. Games with East Tennessee State on Oct. 28 and VMI on Nov. 11 round out the home conference tilts for the Paladins.

Furman will then take back-to-back road trips to Samford on Oct. 14 and Western Carolina on Oct. 21. Single games at Chattanooga on Nov. 4 and Wofford on Nov. 18 will complete the Paladins’ ventures around the Southern Conference.
