NACOGDOCHES, Texas – Stephen F. Austin Director of Athletics Ryan Ivey is excited to announce the finalized 2022 football schedule.
“While scheduling football games in July for the upcoming season is never a fun position to be in, I am encouraged and excited about being able to have a full schedule with competitive balance,” said Ivey. “Our priorities going into this schedule were to make sure we backfilled our home games so that our fan base had as many opportunities to see us play in Homer Bryce as possible, and to make sure we were able to position ourselves for the opportunity for post-season play. I am excited to watch our student-athlete compete and represent SFA in a positive manner.”
The new schedule maximized the competitiveness throughout the WAC and the league is now balanced with each program playing each other once. Furthermore, through its partnership with the ASUN, there are five games between WAC and ASUN opponents.
SFA has the unique distinction of playing three FBS opponents (Jacksonville State, Louisiana Tech, and Sam Houston).
The Lumberjacks will welcome Warner University on September 24 for a 6 p.m. kickoff for Family Weekend.
SFA will match-up two times with Abilene Christian. The ‘Jacks host the Wildcats on October 8, which is slated for a 6 p.m. kickoff and is Faith and Family Day. The two teams will meet again, this time in Abilene, in the regular-season finale on November 19. Game one between the two programs will be played as a non-conference tilt.
The ‘Jacks open the season vs. Jacksonville State (August 27) at the FCS Kickoff Classic, which will be broadcast nationally on ESPN.
SFA travels to Alcorn State (Sept. 3) and Louisiana Tech (Sept. 10) and heads into a bye week prior to the home opener on September 24.
The ‘Jacks and rival Sam Houston will play in the Battle of the Piney Woods (October 1) at NGR Stadium, followed by back-to-back home games vs. ACU (Oct. 8) and Tarleton State (Oct. 15) for Education Appreciation Day. SFA travels to Southern Utah (Oct. 22) and return to Nacogdoches versus Utah Tech (Oct. 29) for Homecoming.
After a bye week, SFA hosts Central Arkansas (Nov. 12) on Senior Day & Military and First Responder Day. The ‘Jacks conclude the regular season at ACU (Nov. 19).
