The Old Dominion Monarchs have added Buffalo, Hampton, and VMI to their future football schedules, The Virginian-Pilot has reported.
Old Dominion will host single games in Norfolk, Virginia against the Hampton Pirates on Sept. 3, 2016 and the VMI Keydets on a date to be announced in 2018.
Hampton, a member of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference in the FCS, finished the 2014 season 3-9 overall and 2-6 in the MEAC. The Pirates played the Monarchs in 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2014, falling in each contest.
VMI (Virginia Military Institute) plays in the Southern Conference. Last season, the Keydets finished 2-10 overall and 1-6 in the SoCon. The two schools played a home-and-home series in 2009 and 2010 and ODU was victorious in both contests.
Old Dominion will also play a home-and-home series against the Buffalo Bulls. The Monarchs will host Buffalo in Norfolk in 2019 and will travel to face the Bulls in New York in 2020.
The addition of Hampton completes Old Dominion’s non-conference schedule in 2016. The Monarchs also travel to Appalachian State (Sept. 10) and NC State (Sept. 17) and later host UMass (Oct. 8).
