The Portland State Vikings have added the Western Oregon Wolves to their fall 2021 football schedule, according to their official athletics website.

Portland State will host Western Oregon at Hillsboro Stadium in Hillsboro, Ore., on Saturday, Sept. 18, 2021. The game will mark the 24th overall meeting between the two schools on the gridiron.

Portland State and Western Oregon first met on the gridiron in 1947. In their most recent matchup in 2015, the Vikings defeated the Wolves 31-0 to even the series at 11-11-1.
