Rams Boulware likes 2016 football schedule

WINSTON-SALEM, North Carolina -- Winston-Salem State’s football schedule will have a different feel this fall.

Although the Rams once again will open against UNC Pembroke on Sept. 3 at Bowman Gray Stadium, they will have two different nonconference opponents than in past years. They will play at Catawba on Sept. 10, and then play Virginia Union on Sept. 17 at Bowman Gray Stadium in a designated nonconference game.

Boulware, who will enter his third season as head coach, was pleased with the way the Rams finished 2015 with their fifth straight CIAA championship game appearance. What made the offseason better was that the Rams upset Bowie State 17-14 in the championship game to finish 6-5 and win their third conference title in the last five seasons.

The Rams, however, have missed out on the Division II playoffs for two straight seasons, and the goal is to get back there.

“The schedule is right in front of us and we know what we have to do get back to those NCAA playoffs,” Boulware said Monday. “We are still in the process of completing our recruiting class for this fall, but we are also pleased with how the schedule looks.”
