By Kevin Kelley -

The UMass Minutemen have officially announced their 2022 football schedule, which includes five home contests.

“The 2022 schedule has a great mix of opponents, both on a local and national scale,” said UMass head football coach Don Brown. “We look forward to competing against regional rivals and national powerhouses as we focus on making the first bowl game in FBS history!”

UMass will open the 2022 season with back-to-back games on the road at the Tulane Green Wave on Saturday, Sept. 3 and at the Toledo Rockets on Saturday, Sept. 10.

The Minutemen open their home slate at McGuirk Alumni Stadium in Amherst, Mass., against Stony Brook on Sept. 17. Back-to-back road contests are up again as the Minutemen travel to face Temple on Sept. 24 and Eastern Michigan on Oct. 1.

UMass then returns home to host consecutive contests at McGuirk Alumni Stadium against Liberty on Oct. 8 and Buffalo on Oct. 15. Following an open date on Oct. 22, the Minutemen welcome New Mexico State on Oct. 29.

The November slate for the Minutemen begins with three consecutive road contests — at UConn on Nov. 5, at Arkansas State on Nov. 12, and at Texas A&M on Nov. 19.

UMass closes out the 2022 regular-season at home against the Army Black Knights on Nov. 26.
