Bethune-Cookman's football schedule features North Texas, home games with MEAC co-champs

DAYTONA BEACH, Florida -- Home dates with fellow Mid Eastern Athletic Conference champions North Carolina Central and North Carolina A&T highlight Bethune-Cookman's 2016 football schedule, set to be unveiled Wednesday in addition to the Wildcats' 2016 recruiting class.

B-CU begins the year with three non-conference games, including a shot at a Football Bowl Subdivision opponent for the sixth consecutive year.

The Wildcats will travel to North Texas, which went 1-11 last season, on Sept. 10. B-CU replaces Liberty on North Texas' schedule, meaning the Mean Green will play consecutive home games to start a season for the first time since 1990. It's the first meeting between the two programs.

The Wildcats are scheduled to return to the MEAC/SWAC Challenge after a three-year absence, but their opponent and the game's location has not yet been revealed by ESPN Events. An announcement will occur in the coming months, said Rachel Margolis Siegal, manager of ESPN College Sports' public relations.
