Shaw Football Releases 2016 Schedule

RALEIGH, North Carolina  The Shaw University football team will play a 10-game schedule in 2016, highlighted by six home games, including a season-opening date against Limestone, announced by the Department of Athletics Friday afternoon.
The Bears kick off the season Saturday, Sept. 3 with a 1 p.m. home game against Limestone for the first time ever in program history.
SU will take a trip down south the following week to face Wingate before hosting UNC Pembroke in a home contest to conclude the non-conference regular season.
After opening the season with three non-conference teams who will most likely be a top contender in their respective conferences, things don't get any easier for the Bears as they open conference play Saturday, Sept. 24 against Bowie State at Durham County Memorial at 1 p.m.
The Bears stretch run will consist of road dates at Elizabeth City State (Oct. 1) and Livingstone (Oct. 15), Saint Augustine's (Nov. 5) and home dates against Fayetteville State (Oct. 8), Johnson C. Smith (Oct. 22), while homecoming will be against the defending 2015 CIAA Champions of Winston-Salem State (Oct. 29).
The 2016 CIAA Football Championship will take place on November 12th at a site to be determined.
All home games will be played at the Durham County Memorial Stadium, located on 750 Stadium Drive, Durham, NC.
