RALEIGH, N.C. (March 21) – Saint Augustine’s University released its 2018 football schedule Wednesday, highlighted by games against archrival Shaw University, defending CIAA champion Virginia State University and Division I North Carolina Central University.

The 10-game slate also features Division I Jacksonville University, CIAA runner-up Fayetteville State University and conference contenders Winston-Salem State University and Bowie State University. Four games will be played on campus at the George Williams Athletic Complex.

“This is a very competitive schedule,” Head Coach Tim Chavous said. “We are ready for the challenge after a successful season.”

In 2017, the Falcons were 5-5 overall and 5-2 in the CIAA. They tied for the best conference mark in the Southern Division, a feat accomplished by the Falcons for the first time in recent memory.

This season, the Falcons open at Jacksonville (Sept. 1) and at North Carolina Central (Sept. 8) before hosting Virginia State (Sept. 15) and Bowie State (Sept. 22). The next three games are on the road as the Falcons visit Elizabeth City State University (Sept. 29), Livingstone College (Oct. 6) and Winston-Salem State (Oct. 13).

Fayetteville State visits the Falcons on Homecoming Day (Oct. 20). The Falcons wrap up the regular season at Johnson C. Smith University (Oct. 27) and at home against Shaw (Nov. 3) in the third edition of the Raleigh Classic. Last season, the Falcons wrestled the trophy away from the Bears in a 31-14 victory.

The CIAA Championship Game (Nov. 10) will be held in Salem, Va., for the third straight season.
