Southland co-champ UIW to face FBS pair
(STATS) - Incarnate Word will seek to build off the most successful season in program history during a 12-game 2019 schedule which was announced Wednesday.
The Cardinals earned a share of the Southland Conference title and an FCS playoff bid for the first time, finishing 6-5 in coach Eric Morris' first season.
The new season kicks off with an inaugural meeting with crosstown FBS member USTA Aug. 31 at San Antonio's Alamodome.
The Cardinals will face a second FBS opponent when they visit New Mexico State on Nov. 16. They also will play six home games, highlighted by a Nov. 2 matchup with Nicholls, the other Southland co-champ last year.
