The Western Carolina Catamounts and Campbell Camels have scheduled a home-and-home football series for the 2026 and 2027 seasons, FBSchedules.com has learned.

A copy of the athletic contest agreement with Campbell University was obtained from Western Carolina University via a state public records request.

In the first game of the series, Western Carolina will travel to face Campbell at Barker-Lane Stadium in Buies Creek, N.C., on Saturday, Sept. 5, 2026. The Camels will return the game the following season when they visit the Catamounts at E.J. Whitmire Stadium in Cullowhee, N.C., on Saturday, Sept. 18, 2027, which will conclude the two-game agreement.
