2016 OOC Football Schedule includes all FCS teams

I initially posted this information on the topic heading of "Duquesne's 2015 Football Schedule is Set."   It probably deserves its own topic.

Here's some good news about the 2016 Dukes' football schedule.  It will include the following OOC (all FCS) teams:  Youngstown State (A), Dayton (H), Buchnell (H), Jacksonville (A), and Kennesaw State (H).  

Kennesaw State was originally a junior college and eventually became part of the University System of GA.  It is located 20 miles north of Atlanta.  It has 22,621 undergrads and claims to be the 3rd largest college in GA.  2015 will be the first season of football for the Owls (not particularly a unique college mascot), as new associate members of the Big South Conference (FCS).  (I believe that it is a member of the Atlantic Sun Conference for other sports.)  The Owls will play at Dayton, one of the Dukes' regular opponents, on Sept. 26th.  That game should give us a barometer of how good or bad the Owls should be.  The on-line photos of the university show that it has a new 8,500 seat stadium.  My guess is that the Dukes' game with the Owls is a one year deal.
