Future opponents on the Football schedule

Here'a link to an article in STATS which is about NEC teams who have scheduled or are scheduling to play FBS teams: 
http://www.fcs.football/cfb/story.asp?i=20160512110125524702804&ref=hea&tm=&src=FCS
The last sentence of the article addresses the Dukes: "Duquesne appears on the verge of jumping into playing the FBS as well."

It is my understanding that the Dukes have been in negotiation with Army, a FBS team, to add them on a future schedule.  Seeing the Dukes playing at West Point would make a very attractive road game to attend.

Still loving the idea of a West Point trip, but actually, we played Buffalo a couple seasons ago.

We nearly beat them, as well

Indeed. It was their season opener after they had scored an upset or near upset over a power conference program, and had thei star drafted in the first round of the NFL draft.

On the topic of future scheduling, don't be surprised if we see Fordham, a very good FCS team (ranked #19 in STAT's final FCS Poll), playing the Dukes on a home and home basis.
