SPARTANBURG – Wofford College on Monday announced the 2013 football schedule, which includes home games against SoCon foes Georgia Southern, Appalachian State, Elon, and Samford, along with a road game against Baylor.
The Terriers will open the season on the road at Baylor on August 31. Baylor, champion of the 2012 Holiday Bowl, enters the 2013 season on a four-game winning streak. Wofford was originally scheduled to play at Florida State to begin the season. The change was made for the Seminoles to open the season on ESPN at Pittsburgh on Labor Day.
The Southern Conference slate will begin on Sept. 7 at The Citadel, followed by a home contest against Georgia Southern on Sept. 14. Wofford will then host Gardner-Webb on Sept. 21 before the first of two open dates.
On Oct. 5, the team will host Presbyterian College for Family Weekend. Elon will visit Gibbs Stadium on Oct. 12 as part of homecoming festivities. A road game at Western Carolina on Oct. 19 will be followed by a home game against Samford.
After the second open weekend, the Terriers will travel to Chattanooga on Nov. 9. Wofford hosts Appalachian State on Nov. 16 and the regular season will end on Nov. 23 at Furman.
