Patriot League announces Spring 2021 football schedule adjustments

By Kevin Kelley -

The Patriot League has announced several Spring 2021 football schedule adjustments for the final two weeks of the regular-season.

The changes were made by the conference to “…prioritize divisional games and determine North and South Division champions.”

Lehigh will now host Bucknell on Saturday, April 3 at noon ET. Bucknell’s previously scheduled contest at Holy Cross on that date has been canceled. As previously scheduled, Colgate will travel to play Fordham with kickoff at 4:00pm ET.

Three games are now scheduled for Saturday, April 10, which was previously designated as a makeup game weekend — Lehigh at Lafayette (156th meeting in The Rivalry), Holy Cross at Colgate, and Fordham at Bucknell.

Winners of the North and South divisions will meet in the first Patriot League Football Championship Game on Saturday, April 17. The game will be televised nationally by the CBS Sports Network at 2:00pm ET.
