Wake Forest Announces Slew Of Future Games

Wake Forest Director of Athletics Ron Wellman released a column at Wake Forest’s website detailing the football program’s future opponents. In total, 13 opponents were announced between 2016 and 2027.

“The ACC athletic directors have agreed that each ACC school will play a football non-conference opponent from the SEC, Big 10, PAC 12, Big 12 or Notre Dame or BYU annually,” said Wellman. He went on to say, “Ideally, we would like to play seven home football games each season. We have succeeded in scheduling seven home games in 2016, 2018, 2019 and 2020.”

The opponents will be a six-game series with Army, a home-and-home series with Vanderbilt, home games against Air Force and Northern Illinois, and three FCS teams.

Wake Forest will play home games against Army in 2016, 2022, and 2025. Army will be the home team in 2021, 2024, and 2026.

The Vanderbilt home-and-home series will take place in 2022 and 2023. Vanderbilt will be at home in 2022 while Wake Forest will get the return leg in 2023.

Air Force will visit Wake Forest in 2022 and Northern Illinois will do the same in 2021. The three FCS teams scheduled are Presbyterian in 2017, Liberty in 2018, and Elon in 2019.
