Blue Hose Back to the Gridiron

The home-opener will be Sept. 19 against the University of Virginia-Wise
The team's improvement throughout all of last season resulted in winning two of their last three games, and that has the coaches and players feeling very good about the entire 2020 schedule. I encourage all of our fans to 'Take Pride in PC' by coming to see the team play this fall." - Rob Acunto, PC Athletics Director

The Presbyterian College football team will play five home games as a part of its 2020 schedule, announced by athletic director Rob Acunto on Tuesday.

 

The Blue Hose will play the 2020 season as an NCAA D1 FCS independent before transitioning to FCS Pioneer Football in 2021. 

"Facing four opponents for the first time, playing six road games including a flight to San Antonio, competing against two future Pioneer Football League opponents exemplifies the 2020 football schedule was designed to help prepare PC for competition in the PFL in 2021," Acunto said. "The team's improvement throughout all of last season resulted in winning two of their last three games, and that has the coaches and players feeling very good about the entire 2020 schedule. I encourage all of our fans to 'Take Pride in PC' by coming to see the team play this fall."
