IWU Football Announces Schedule for Inaugural Season

The full 2018 schedule has been released for the Indiana Wesleyan University football team. This fall marks the first season of intercollegiate football at Indiana Wesleyan.

The Wildcats play a 10-game slate with five home games and five away contests. The program opener is vs. Taylor (Ind.) on Sept. 1 in Marion.

“We are really looking forward to competing in 2018 and this schedule will be a great test for our football program in our inaugural season,” said head coach Jordan Langs. “The level of competition will be good insight into what is to come being a member of the MSFA.”

Four of the first five games of the season will be played in Marion. IWU then plays four consecutive games on the road before closing out the season at home vs. Lawrence Tech (Mich.) on Nov. 17.

Indiana Wesleyan is an associate member of the Mid-State Football Association in 2018 and plays six MSFA members. Those games are not part of the conference slate. Besides the season opener vs. Taylor, Indiana Wesleyan plays home games vs. MSFA members Lindenwood-Belleville (Ill.) and Saint Francis (Ill.) on Homecoming. IWU travels to MSFA members Siena Heights (Mich.), Olivet Nazarene (Ill.), and Concordia (Mich.), who finished No. 15 in the national polls in 2017.

IWU plays Lawrence Tech (Mich.) in a home-and-home series. The first contest is on Oct. 13 in Southfield, Michigan, while the second game closes out the season on Nov. 17 in Marion. Both schools are first-year programs and associate members of the MSFA.

Season tickets for the 2018 season will be available for IWU football later in the spring.
