LEXINGTON, Va. - Matchups against FBS foes Marshall and Army highlight the 2019 VMI Football schedule.

The Keydets will open the season August 31 at Marshall University in the first meeting between the schools since 1996 when both institutions were in the Southern Conference.

VMI will also travel to West Point November 16 to face the Black Knights for the first time since the 2010 season.  Army posted an 11-2 mark in 2018 for the most victories in a season in academy history and captured the Armed Forces Bowl.

A six-game home slate, the first since 2014, will appear at Foster Stadium this fall beginning with the home opener September 7 featuring the first game ever between VMI and Mars Hill. Other home dates include Robert Morris (Sept. 21), Wofford (Sept. 28), Samford (Oct. 12), Western Carolina (Nov. 2) and Chattanooga (Nov. 23).

Southern Conference play for the Keydets begins September 14 in Johnson City, Tennessee against defending co-champion ETSU.

VMI will face The Citadel October 5 in Charleston, South Carolina in the annual renewal of the series known as “The Military Classic of the South.”
