A copy of the football game contract with Morgan State University was obtained from the University at Albany via a state Freedom of Information Law request.
In the first game of the series, UAlbany will host Morgan State at Bob Ford Field in Albany, N.Y., on Saturday, Nov. 13, 2021. The Great Danes will then travel to take on the Bears at Hughes Stadium in Baltimore, Md., two seasons later on Saturday, Sept. 23, 2023.
