The Wake Forest Demon Deacons and the East Carolina Pirates have scheduled a home-and-home football series for 2027 and 2028, the two schools announced on Tuesday.
In the first game of the series, Wake Forest will travel to play East Carolina at Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium in Greenville, North Carolina on Sept. 11, 2027. The Demon Deacons will then host the Pirates at BB&T Field in Winston-Salem, NC on Sept. 23, 2028.
Wake Forest and East Carolina have met eight times on the gridiron, but not since a 44-34 Demon Deacon victory in Winston-Salem in 2005. Wake lead the overall series 6-2 and has won the last five meetings.
ECU is the second non-conference opponent for Wake Forest for both seasons. The Demon Deacons are also slated to host Notre Dame in 2027 and Purdue in 2028 (Sept. 9).
Wake Forest is East Carolina’s first non-conference opponent scheduled for 2027. In 2028, the Pirates are also scheduled to host Boise State (Sept. 9) and Georgia State (Sept. 16).
