AKRON, Ohio – University of Akron Director of Athletics Tom Wistrcill and football head coach Terry Bowden announced on Friday the completion of the non-conference schedules for 2015 and 2016 after reaching agreements with two institutions to play games at InfoCision Stadium – Summa Field.
The Zips will host Savannah State on Sept. 19, 2015, in what will be the first meeting between the two programs on the gridiron. UA had previously announced a game at Louisiana on that date, but the matchup has been moved to Sept. 26. Also previously announced, Akron opens the 2015 campaign at Oklahoma on Sept. 5 and faces Pittsburgh at home on Sept. 12. The Pittsburgh game is part of a home-and-home contract that begins at Pitt on Sept. 27, 2014.
In 2016, UA opens the season at home on Sept. 1 versus VMI, an opponent that it defeated 36-13 on Sept. 24, 2011 at InfoCision Stadium. As previously announced, the Zips have road games at Wisconsin (Sept. 10) and Marshall (Sept. 17), and a home contest against Appalachian State (Sept. 24) that season.
