West Georgia adds Lincoln (CA) to 2024 football schedule

By Brian Wilmer -

The West Georgia Wolves have added the Lincoln University Oaklanders to their 2024 football schedule, according to a release from the school.

West Georgia will host Lincoln at University Stadium in Carrollton, Ga., on Saturday, Nov. 2, 2024. Kick time and coverage will be announced at a later date.

The contest will mark the first ever between the Wolves and Oaklanders. The 2024 campaign marks the first at the Division I (FCS) level for West Georgia.

Lincoln University, located in Oakland, Ca., is an independent program with the goal of becoming an NCAA Division II member institution. The Oaklanders will take part in their fourth season of sponsored football in 2024, led by coach Desmond Gumbs. Gumbs has won three of the 19 contests in which he has led the Oaklanders.

West Georgia is scheduled to open the 2024 season at home on Saturday, Aug. 31 against the Samford Bulldogs of the Southern Conference. The Wolves are also slated to play a non-conference game at home against the Shorter Hawks on Saturday, Oct. 19.

The United Athletic Conference (UAC) announced its revised 2024 football schedule just over two weeks ago. West Georgia is slated to host North Alabama, Austin Peay, Southern Utah, and Tarleton State, while traveling to Abilene Christian, Eastern Kentucky, Central Arkansas, and Utah Tech.

Below is West Georgia’s 2024 football schedule:

Is it just me, or does anyone ever feel like the students at Lincoln (CA) are perpetually just being taken advantage of by the university? All games are away and and Lincoln is perpetually blown out every game since the founding of the football team.

You’re right……..it feels like Lincoln is just Bishop Sycamore playing at being a college program. Definitely very shady. Gary Payton was supposed to be the Men’s basketball coach last year but never heard anything beyond that. I’m surprised Texas Tech didn’t schedule Lincoln…….
