Football Team Announces 2015 Schedule

The University of Maine football program has released its 2015 schedule.

The season is highlighted by a pair of Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) contests at Boston College and Tulane, a home game against Yale, and a competitive set of Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) league contests where UMaine will face all three CAA teams who made the NCAA FCS Playoffs in 2014.

The Black Bears’ season opener is Sept. 5 at Boston College. The team’s first home game will be Sept. 26 against Rhode Island. UMaine closes out the regular season at New Hampshire on Nov. 21.

“When we informed our team of the 2015 schedule I was taken by the level of excitement in the eyes of our players,” says head coach Jack Cosgrove. “This is as challenging a schedule as we’ve ever encountered here to two FBS games and a great Ivy League opponent in Yale for our non-conference slate. The CAA segment speaks for itself, we need to be ready each and every Saturday. So our fans know, our preparation for this great schedule has already begun.”

Season tickets are on sale and can be reserved by calling the ticket office at 207.581.BEAR or 800.756.TEAM.
