Wolves Release 2012 Football Schedule

March 20, 2012

Five home contests highlight Cheyney University’s 2012 football schedule.

Cheyney will open the season on September 1 at Lincoln. The “Battle of the First” will christen a new stadium on the Lincoln campus. Last year the Wolves defeated Lincoln 21-19 to give Coach Lockard his first collegiate victory as a head coach. “This is going to be an exciting event this year,” commented Lockard who this past winter rid himself of the interim tag. “It’s not every day that you get to be the first to play in a stadium. It will be a tremendous atmosphere.”

The Wolves will then play four of their next five in O’Shields-Stevenson on campus. The Wolves will host Indiana (PA) on September 8 and C.W. Post on September 15. Cheyney will then travel to the Pocono Mountains on September 22 to battle the Warriors of East Stroudsburg. Last year the Warriors escaped Cheyney with a hard fought victory in a freaky October snow storm. The Wolves return home on September 29 to face Mercyhurst College followed by Kutztown on first Saturday in October. On October 13 Cheyney will travel to Lancaster to face the Marauders of Millersville. The Wolves will conclude their home schedule on October 20 when the Bloomsburg Huskies invade O’Shields-Stevenson Stadium for a homecoming contest. The Cheyney community will also honor all of the seniors on the squad playing in their final home game before the faithful crowd. Cheyney will conclude the 2012 campaign with three straight road trips. On October 27 the Wolves will make the short trip to West Chester. November 3 finds the Wolves back on the Pennsylvania Turnpike with Shippensburg as the destination. The final contest of the 2012 slate, on November 13, has Cheyney playing at Lock Haven.

All home games kick-off at 1:00 pm.

“We are looking forward to this upcoming season and the competition in the PSAC. We have been making great strides and look forward to continuing our progress. The competition in the PSAC football is some of the best in Division II and we are going to continue to strive to get to the top,” commented Lockard.
