Gardner-Webb adds Presbyterian to spring 2021 football schedule

By Brian Wilmer -

The Gardner-Webb Runnin’ Bulldogs have added the Presbyterian Blue Hose to their spring 2021 football schedule, the school has announced.

The game will be played at Ernest W. Spangler Stadium in Boiling Springs, North Carolina, on Saturday, March 6. Kick time is slated for 1:00 (Eastern) and ESPN+ will stream the contest.

This will mark the 43rd time the former Big South Conference foes have squared off on the gridiron. The Runnin’ Bulldogs claimed the last two outings on the Spangler Stadium turf, while Presbyterian took down the ‘Dogs, 24-14, at Bailey Memorial Stadium in 2019.

Gardner-Webb is now slated for six spring football contests. The Runnin’ Bulldogs’ fall 2020 season was postponed to spring due to the novel coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic.

Below is Gardner-Webb’s spring 2021 football schedule:

  • 02/27  — Elon (3:00 PM)
  • 03/06  — Presbyterian (1:00 PM)
  • 03/20  — Monmouth * (TBA)
  • 03/27  — Kennesaw State * (TBA)
  • 04/03  — at Charleston Southern * (TBA)
  • 04/10  — at Robert Morris * (TBA)

The FCS Playoffs this spring are scheduled to begin on Saturday, April 24 and conclude with the championship game on or around May 15.
