Navy updates 2018, 2019 non-conference schedules

By Kevin Kelley -

The Navy Midshipmen have updated their 2018 and 2019 non-conference schedules, according to their official website.

Navy was previously scheduled to open the 2018 season in Week Zero vs. Lehigh (Aug. 25), but that game has been pushed back three weeks to Sept. 15.

The Midshipmen will now open the 2018 season against the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors in Honolulu on Sept. 1, a date which was previously announced and has not changed.

The remainder of Navy’s 2018 non-conference schedule is unchanged. The Midshipmen are set to travel to face Air Force on Oct. 6, play Notre Dame in San Diego on Oct. 27, and take on the Black Knights in the annual Army-Navy Game on Dec. 8 in Philadelphia.

In 2019, Navy was previously scheduled to host Holy Cross on Sept. 7. That game has been moved up one week and will now be played on Aug. 31. Holy Cross was previously scheduled to play at Syracuse on Aug. 31, but the Crusaders will now face the Orange on Sept. 28.

Navy’s three other non-conference games in 2019 remain the same: vs. Air Force (Oct. 5), at Notre Dame (Nov. 16), and vs. Army (Dec. 14 in Philadelphia).
