Six home games, three Thursday contests mark FSU schedule

FAIRMONT — Fairmont State University’s football schedule was far from favorable during a 4-6 2012 season.

The Falcons had only four home games — none before Sept. 22 and three on or after Oct. 13.

There has been a major change for the better for 2013, FSU’s first under coach Jason Woodman and the inaugural campaign in the Mountain East Conference.

“It’s going to be good for our fans,” Woodman said.

FSU, the university announced Tuesday, will play six home games.

“All in all, it’s a really good schedule this year,” FSU athletic director Tim McNeely said.

The Falcons will also play three games on Thursday night, two of those coming at Duvall-Rosier Field.

“With the new conference coming in, it helped in getting close to an equal amount of home and away games,” Woodman said.

Fairmont State will open the season at home at 7 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 5, against former West Virginia Conference opponent Seton Hill, which is the lone non-conference game of the season.

The Falcons will then open MEC play against traditionally strong Shepherd at 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 14, at Duvall-Rosier Field.

The Falcons will then have a short week, playing at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 19. at Glenville State,

Woodman believes there are advantages to playing Thursdays and avoiding to a good extent conflicts with Division I football.
