The Florida Memorial University Lions will do something this fall that hasn't taken place since the late parts of 1958 - field a football team.
On Monday, the school announced their schedule for the upcoming season in a slate of games that includes five home contests scheduled to be played at the Betty T. Ferguson complex in Miami Gardens.
“We’re going to play one of the toughest schedules in NAIA, right out the gate…and we love it,” athletics director Ernest Jones said of the schedule that features five games against teams ranked in the Top 25 last season.
“We want to put ourselves in position to train and compete with the best in the country because that’s who were and that’s what we do," head coach Tim "Ice" Harris said.
The schedule for 2020 is:
August 29th - vs. Reinhardt (1 PM)
September 5th - at Lindsey Wilson
Sept. 12th - vs. Edward Waters (1 PM)
Sept. 26th - at Bethel
Oct. 3rd - at Webber International
Oct. 10th - vs. St. Thomas (Homecoming) (1 PM)
Oct. 17th - at Warner
Oct. 24th - at Keiser
Nov. 7th - vs. Ava Maria (1 PM)
Nov. 14th - vs. Southeastern (1 PM)
Jones said the school could add an 11th game to the schedule, but declined to say when that could be announced.
