WEST POINT, N.Y. -
Home-and-home series versus Stanford and Wake Forest, and games with Boston College at Michie Stadium and Yankee Stadium highlight Army's 2013 and 2014 football schedules that were announced by Director of Athletics Boo Corrigan on Monday.
Army will play 11 games at West Point during those two seasons, including six in 2013 and five in 2014. In addition, the Black Knights will host Boston College as part of the "Army at Yankee Stadium Series" on Nov. 8, 2014.
The 2013 slate features home games versus three teams from BCS automatic-qualifying conferences. The Black Knights will welcome Stanford (Pac-12), Wake Forest (ACC) and Boston College (ACC) to Michie Stadium. In addition, Army hosts Morgan State in the season opener, Eastern Michigan and Western Kentucky. The Morgan State contest is set for Aug. 31, marking only the second time the Black Knights have played in August. The 2008 season opener versus Temple was played on Aug. 28. The 2013 opener is also the first time the Black Knights will open a campaign at Michie Stadium since the 2008 contest versus Temple.
The 2013 road slate is highlighted by a trip to service-academy rival Air Force and a Thanksgiving weekend visit to Hawai'i. It is the Black Knights' first trip to Honolulu since 2003. Army will also play at Ball State, Louisiana Tech and Temple.
The 2013 Army-Navy Game presented by USAA will be played at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia on Dec. 14.
Army will play five games at West Point and the Boston College contest at Yankee Stadium during the 2014 season. The Black Knights begin the season by hosting Buffalo on Sept. 6. The rest of the home schedule includes Ball State, Rice, Air Force and Fordham. After the opener versus Buffalo, a challenging three-game road stretch awaits the Black Knights. Army will play at Stanford, at Wake Forest and at Yale to round out the September schedule. The trip to Stanford will mark Army's first time in Palo Alto since 1976. Army is also slated to play at Kent State and at Western Kentucky.
The regular-season finale versus Navy moves to Baltimore's M&T Bank Stadium on Dec. 13, 2014.
"We are happy to once again be able to announce our future schedules so far in advance," Corrigan said. "Even with the challenges of scheduling as a Football Bowl Subdivision Independent, we have been able to put together schedules that are balanced, both competitively and geographically. We will be able to expose Army Football to all regions of the country, as well as playing some terrific opponents at Michie Stadium."
As previously announced, Army has an agreement with the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl should the Black Knights be bowl eligible in 2013. The Army Athletic Association is working to finalize the Black Knights' postseason plans for the 2014 campaign.
The Black Knights begin their 122nd season on Sept. 3, 2011 at Northern Illinois. Army makes its home debut the following week when it hosts San Diego State.
