CAA Announces Football Schedules For Fall 2021

February 10, 2021 by

CAA Football has released its schedule for the 2021 fall season, which includes each team playing 11 games over a 12-week period.

As usual, the conference slate features four home games and four road games for each team as they face eight of the other 11 CAA Football members. However, this year’s schedule has been configured to reduce travel, especially in regards to flights.

There are two conference contests on the opening Saturday of the season as Maine hosts Delaware and Stony Brook entertains New Hampshire on September 4. There is at least one conference matchup during all 12 weeks, including a full schedule of six league games on October 23 and November 20.

The non-conference schedule features 12 games against FBS opponents. Seven of those contests are against teams from Power 5 leagues, with four versus the ACC (Pitt, Syracuse, Virginia and Virginia Tech), two against the Big Ten (Rutgers and Penn State) and one versus the Pac 12 (Oregon). CAA Football has won at least one game against FBS foes in 14 of the past 18 years.

There are also several non-conference matchups against top FCS competition. UAlbany and Towson will both face defending FCS champion North Dakota State, James Madison visits reigning Big Sky champion Weber State and Elon hosts defending Southern Conference champion Wofford. CAA teams were 30-9 (.769) against non-conference FCS foes in 2019, which was the best of any league.
