Warhawks agree to home-and-home series versus UTEP; Miners to visit Monroe on September 26th

College Sports

MONROE, La. – ULM has completed its revised 2020 football schedule by adding a home game against UTEP on Saturday, Sept. 26 at 7 p.m. 

It marks the first game of a home-and-home series against the Miners, with the season and date of the return trip to El Paso, Texas, to be determined. 

The Warhawks originally were slated to play at No. 4 Georgia on Sept. 26, but it was canceled after the Southeastern Conference announced on July 30 that its members will play a 10-game, league-only regular-season schedule.  

“Given the unique circumstances presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, I couldn’t be happier with the way our final schedule came together,” ULM Athletics Director Scott McDonald said. “The challenges provided new opportunities. 

“It’s unique whenever you can open a season with a conference game (Sept. 5 at Troy). In Week 2, we were excited to add ULM’s first-ever game against one of the nation’s service academies. The game at Army provides national exposure along with a trip to the East Coast, so we can expand our brand.  

“We’re thrilled to begin a home-and-home series with UTEP,” McDonald continued. “It guarantees a fifth home game on the schedule, and it makes a lot of sense from a regional standpoint.  

“And of course, the neutral site game against Louisiana Tech in Shreveport remains a highlight our late-season schedule. 

“I appreciate Todd Dooley’s assistance in finalizing the details of many of these games along with the steady leadership provided by head coach Matt Viator.”
