The James Madison Dukes and the Utah State Aggies have scheduled a home-and-home football series for the 2023 and 2025 seasons, both schools have announced.
In the first game of the series, James Madison will travel to take on Utah State at Maverik Stadium in Logan, Utah, on Saturday, Sept. 23, 2023. The series will conclude two seasons later when the Dukes host the Aggies at Bridgeforth Stadium in Harrisonburg, Va., on Saturday, Sept. 13, 2025.
James Madison, a member of the Sun Belt Conference, and Utah State, a member of the Mountain West Conference, have never met on the gridiron.
James Madison was previously scheduled to play at the Miami RedHawks on Sept. 23, 2023, but that game has been rescheduled for the 2028 season, which we reported on Tuesday.
