SPARTANBURG, S.C. – Wofford College has announced the 2021 football schedule, which features home games against Kennesaw State, Chattanooga, Western Carolina, Samford and Furman, along with a visit to the University of North Carolina.

The season will begin on September 4 at Elon, a former member of the Southern Conference. The Phoenix and Terriers last met in the 2018 NCAA FCS Playoffs. Wofford holds a 27-11 lead in the series that began in 1921. After an open date, the Terriers will host Kennesaw State on September 18. The teams played in the NCAA FCS Playoffs in 2018 and 2019, with the Owls winning both games.

The Southern Conference slate begins on September 25 at VMI. The Terriers have a 13-11 lead in the series, however the Keydets ended an eight-game winning streak by Wofford this past spring. A trip to East Tennessee State on October 2 will see the Terriers look to extend a nine-game winning streak over the Bucs that began in 1999. The two teams did not play in the 2020-21 season.

On October 9, the Terriers host Furman as the teams renew the series that began in 1889. The teams did not play in the 2020-21 season, marking the first time since 1994 the rivalry game did not take place. Samford, who has won six straight games in the series against Wofford, visits Spartanburg on October 16 as part of Homecoming Weekend festivities

The Terriers will travel to Mercer on October 23, with Wofford winning all seven games since the Bears joined the Southern Conference. Wofford returns home on October 30 to host Western Carolina. The teams did not face each other in 2020-21 and Wofford has won the last four meetings. On November 6, Chattanooga makes a visit to Gibbs Stadium as the Terriers lead the series that began in 1927 by a 15-12 margin.

A trip to Charleston on November 13 will see the Terriers play The Citadel. Wofford has won 20 of the last 23 meetings in the series that began in 1916. The regular season will conclude on November 20 with a game at the University of North Carolina. It will mark the first ever meeting between the two teams. Last year the Tarheels were 8-4 overall and lost to Texas A&M in the Orange Bowl.

All dates are subject to change. Kick off times and the Southern Conference television schedule will be announced at a later date.
